The 1book140 Suggestion Box

1book140_icon.JPG We're wrapping up the first month of our big read-along, but we're really just beginning. By the end of the day today we'll have a title chosen for July (vote now if you haven't!), and then we'll have a non-fiction pick for August, something crisp and cool for September, and, well, you get the idea. This could go on forever, and hopefully it will. But before we jump into July, we want to know what you think. How did it go this month? Were the conversations illuminating? Did the discussion schedule go too fast, or too slow? Was the voting fair? Chaotic? What about the choice of books? We want to hear any and every complaint, suggestion, or just simple comment below. (I have my own thoughts, and will hint at these in my own comments, and possibly an end-of-month post.)
