UPDATED (6/2): We've chosen and notified the Open members who will get the books in the mail. We had a lot of emails, so we pulled randomly from list of those of you who sent in requests. If you didn't get it this time, I hope you'll try again on our next pick. And I hope you'll consider getting the book and joining along, if you're interested.
As Thomas teased a while back, we're about ready to launch our very first Salon Reading Club. This Monday, Laura Miller, our esteemed book critic, will announce the first pick in her What To Read column -- and she'll be discussing the book in follow-up Saturday columns throughout the month of June.
We're also giving out some free copies of the book. If you're interested in getting one, send us your name, the URL to your Open blog, and your mailing address to: email@example.com
Get ready -- it's a big book. But I think it's a tremendous one -- I read the galleys on vacation recently, and can't wait to talk to other people about it!
