Both of our group selections this month have an island theme.

Small Island & 'Til the Well Runs Dry: A Novel

So take advantage of that, or choose your own. This month read at least 1 book with an island theme.

You can list your choices and goals here and/or on the widget.

Have fun!

Beverly | 1078 comments I am always in an island state of mine. :)
Not sure what my August theme will be but I am sure there is an island somewhere in my reading this book.

Last month my reading included some large islands - Greenland, New Guinea and Australia (but most consider this a continent because it fits that definition) - so maybe this month my reading will include some smaller islands.

Londa (londalocs) | 1526 comments For some reason I had this challenge ending on 8-30. I changed it to 8-31 for anyone squeezing those last couple of books in.
