              ~ All Together Now: An August Group Challenge ~
We’re going to see if we can all pitch in and spell something.

For August let’s try the words “The Dog Days of Summer with Lisa Kleypas.”

RULES: Only ONE book per person may be submitted. You may reserve your letter now, on a first come, first serve. However, you may change your mind later in the month, just let us know as soon as possible.

Read a book with a title, series name, author’s (first or last name), character (first or last name), that begin with the letter that correspond to letters of the words we have chosen. You may ignore the indefinite and definite articles (a, an, the, etc.).

Example of Spell-It-Out in Post #2 below. If you need to know, here is info on how to Add a Book or Bookcover Link.

Any genre, fiction or non-fiction... any book is acceptable, as long as it is read.

BJ Rose (bjrose) | 848 comments I'll take a D - actually I already finished it!
I read Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon and loved it as much on the reread as the first time around years ago. Still a 5* read - a listen really - Davina Porter makes Jamie & Claire (and all the others) really come alive.
