Dog Days of Summer 2009

Have you heard about the Dog Days of Summer celebration put together by The Literate Housewife?

All you have to do is read and review one of the books she's reviewing that week and post your review between August 24 and August 28.

Here are the books she's reading: (I'll be reading the one in BOLD)

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Secrets of Happiness by Sarah Dunn
The Dogs of Babel by Carolyn Parkhurst
Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck

Part 2 of the celebration is to submit a photo of you, your family, and your pets (not just dogs), and encourage friends and family to vote for you. All pictures are due by August 24 (which means I need to get a move on!)

Part 3 is to comment on The Literate Housewife's reviews for additional entries into the bookmarks giveaway.

I hope you will all join in the fun.

Thank you so much for this post, Serena! I appreciate your support. I hope that everyone else has fun with this theme week. I'd love to hold it each year if it works well.

LiterateHousewife: I think its a great idea and there is never a shortage of books with dogs. LOL I can only fit in one book this year, but I'd be up to do more next year. Thanks for hosting it.

That sounds like a fun event. I've already lined up to read "The Art of Racing In The Rain" soon. "Dog On It" sounds like it would fit in well with that event, too.
