Have you cast your vote on which book you want to read for our June Meetup? Here's the link to the poll. "Sketching User Experiences" is currently leading with the votes. I'll be closing this poll 5.19.13 11PM EST, so we have enough time to read it by June.

Have a great week ahead and keep reading!
