Thanks to energetic and proactive community members, we are finishing a month of short stories by Sherman Alexie at 1book140, The Atlantic's Twitter book club.

Send in nominations now for our April poetry month. Do you have a favorite to share with others or something you especially want to read? Are there anthologies you adore? Can you suggest articles and resources for readers who are more used to fiction than poetry? Add your suggestions in the comments below or post them to our hashtag, #1book140. We'll take your suggestions, bundle them together into collections, with open voting on Tuesday. It's easy to join our Twitter book club. Follow us at @1book140, suggest poems, start reading once we pick a schedule, and add your voice. What do we discuss? Read our Twitter Q&A with young adult author John Green last month.
