Hi, everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful May so far. If it's okay with everyone, can we only have ONE chat this month? I've started a new, full-time job and I'm still trying to catch up and find time for my blog, online job, and other responsibilities.

If you could suggest a few dates that you'd all be available so we can try to get as many people involved in the chat, that'd be AWESOME.

ALSO, please go ahead and start suggesting titles for our June 2015 read and I'll get the poll up soon. Let's say the deadline for suggestions will be: Friday, May 22.


Ashley (heyyitsashley_) I'm okay with one chat this month. I've already gotten the book finished. :) anytime usually works for me. Still thinking about my book choice for June, so I'll reply with one tomorrow. :)


Maren (pennma05) One chat is definitely fine. I'll be working on a project at home all weekend but will be able to work around whatever time works best for everyone else.
I'm going to just re-suggest my May pick for June: Inescapable


Ashley (heyyitsashley_) June Book Suggestion: The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer.

Alright, does Sunday work for everyone? I've had a couple of people message me that Sunday works better, and both Maren and Ashley commented Sunday or either day. If Sunday works for everyone, we'll do that.
