Each month we will read a public domain book in a certain genre, about a particular subject, or by an specific author. Report which book or story you've decided to read. Feel free to discuss what you're reading and the author's writing style. Don't forget to leave a review of your selected work.

June is the hottest month where I live. Temperatures are often above 115 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm ready for cooler weather. That's not going to happen until the end of October though.

Well, we can read about cold weather! This month's theme is cold weather in the title. Think blizzards, ice, snow, or even just winter.

Here are some books with wintery words in the title:
The Winter's Tale
The Burglar and the Blizzard
A Night in the Snow or, A Struggle for Life
Snow-Bound A Winter Idyll
Children of the Frost
Delilah of the Snows
Fast in the Ice Adventures in the Polar Regions
A Winter Amid the Ice
Storm-Bound; or, A Vacation Among the Snow Drifts

I am already in LOVE with this theme. 😍😍

Same here, the weather in Egypt is super hot 🌡️🌡️🌡️. That my laptop gets hot even when the AC is open.

Here in Arizona, the monsoon season begins soon, and the temperatures will come down to a somewhat reasonable level. Thank goodness!

I decided to try a new author. I read Storm-Bound; or, A Vacation Among the Snow Drifts. It turned out to be the 8th (I think) book in a series focusing on a group of young men in a Boy Scout troop.

It was a easy read, but I didn't enjoy it that much. It was rather preachy. The author kept inserting bits about how prepared and good a Boy Scout is.

I have decided to read Delilah of the Snows. But life is eating my reading time. I still haven't finished last month's read.

I'm sorry that life is getting in the way of your reading! Why don't you try a short story? I recommend The Burglar and the Blizzard.

Hello, Lanelle. I have read The Burglar and the Blizzard. Thank you so much for the recommendation. The book is lovely and short. I can't wait to read The Unknown Ajax. I always look forward to your book recommendations. 😊

Sawako, I'm glad you enjoyed The Burglar and the Blizzard. And I think that The Unknown Ajax is my favorite Heyer book. I look forward to your thoughts about the story and characters.

Have things settled down for you?
