Since nothing has happened on this topic for a while,  John suggested
on IRC tonight that we just announce some titles and see how it goes.
So here it is:

For June: The Starfish and the Spider
For July: The Wisdom of Crowds

Each one followed by an IRC discussion at the end of each month
(#fedora-mktg?), date to be determined.

Happy reading!
