So since there is no real major holiday in August (is there??) I decided to go with "the end of summer" theme. You guys can nominate the second theme for August.

I am going to nominate "Book Lover's Week" We can nominate whatever book we love!!!


message 3: by Bucket (new)

Bucket On August 18, 1920 the 19th amendment was signed, giving US women the right to vote. In addition, August 9th is National Women's Day in South Africa. Perhaps a women's theme?

message 8: by Paula (new)

Paula I'd like to second the wind nomination because my town just survived two major wind storms in the last two weeks, and because then maybe we could nominate The Shadow of the Wind?

Kara Burke | 2 comments I second "Shadow of the Wind."
But since August is usually so hot, I say go for a flaming hot theme, and recommend "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," by David Sedaris. VERY funny.
