Read them all! There’s a three-way tie right now, so that means we have books for June, July and August if there’s no change. I actually prefer knowing the books well in advance because waiting until the end of the month to decide next month’s book doesn’t give people a lot of time to get the book if they need to order it.

Edit: I see the poll has ended, so I guess there won’t be any change.

I think Andric for June is a safe bet - nobody has suggested anything else. Unless somebody presents an alternative to the suggestion in the other thread, I'll go update the introductory post tomorrow morning (CET).

I also just downloaded the Bulgakov in Russian. July? Then August for the Italian book? Can someone more proficient confirm that book in Italian is Pista nera?
