Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments This is where we will be posting any announcements that you need to know or be aware of regarding the group and its activities. These may include: notices for when to put in last-minute suggestions for the book of the month, links to current challenges/book of the month, links to polls, etc. These will be more regular than the group messages, which are sent out about twice a month, and may be helpful to keep yourself up to date with group activities if you forget something.

Jackie (jackiegirl02) | 4614 comments As voted by you guys, we'll be reading Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes, #1) by Sara Raasch for May. The read will begin on May 20th and we'll take things at our own pace.

Please start posting suggestions for June's book of the month in that thread so we can compile a list.
