Jackie | 82 comments Sorry for the delay! May appeared way too quickly! The poll for May's theme is now closed and the winner is books in which the title involves the book's location or setting!

Remember that once you've finished your book(s) for the month, you're always welcome to start a discussion topic in the month's folder (which works best if there are others in the group who have read or are currently reading the book in question) or post your thoughts (or just drop a link to your review!) in the thread below.

And don't forget to vote on the poll for June's theme. The poll for July's theme is now open!

La_mariane I've read 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff : really good epistolary book. It's a very quick read : I finished it in less than one day.

Anne | 68 comments I'm reading Crow Lake by Mary Lawson, Crow Lake by Mary Lawson really good so far

Have finished this book and really enjoyed it. Can recommend it if you like the small town/isolated settlements type of story set in America.

I didn't know there was a movie. I'll have to look it up.

Melissa I enjoyed Lipstick in Afghanistan by Roberta Gately while I was reading it, but I don't know that it is the type of story that will stay with me.

This is one of my favorites. Have you seen the movie? It's great, too.
