August Theme: Dog Days

Here in the United States, we are in the dog days of summer. Those long, sultry days of heavy heat and swarms of mosquitoes. This is the time of year when we start dreaming of falling leaves and pumpkin spiced everything. We fan ourselves with the electric bill and think about decorating for Christmas, or better yet - ice skating. Those of you in the southern hemisphere who typically experience the oppressive heat of summer in February and/or March, might even be yearning for the return of skin baking sunshine.

This month, our theme is Dog Days. Though the inspiration for the theme is the common phrase I used above, you never really know how our Lightning Quick Reads authors will interpret it, do you? Which is exactly what makes this blog so much fun! So grab a large glass of ice cold lemonade and enjoy a month of Dog Days.

As extra added fun, we'd love for you to share a picture of your dog(s) with us. Current family pet or a beloved pet who has frolicked over the rainbow bridge, post the picture on our Facebook page or tweet the picture, but in either case use the hashtags #LQR and #DogDays.
