As we have only one book nominated and seconded, our May monthly read will be Normal People by Sally Rooney. Our discussion will be led by Colleen.
The nominations are now closed. Thanks to everyone.

This book was released in Ireland and the UK last Sept. 2018 in both paperback and HC. I had both the paperback and HC but just gave my paperback away to a friend and got Rooney to sign the hardcover when she was here in DC last month (and a friend at the signing promptly borrowed it from me). It's just over $13 on Amazon US in hardcover and kindle for $12.99. Actually you can get the paperback on Amazon US for $11.64 but it's coming from the UK - it says Book Depository US but delivery is May 20-29.
The reason why I am chiming in is that back in the day there was an agreement to select books available in US as well as Ireland and UK and this book does meet that criteria. The US is very often up to a year late in getting Irish and UK books. That's why I rely on Kennys and The Book Depository (as well as shopping for books when I'm on the other side of the pond).
