Jennifer, this is a great idea before the end of the summer. I love the button. I can't think of a better one. Can you?? Thanks Jennifer for hosting.

I will be posting a review on two of the books mentioned, The Art of Racing in the Rain, and Dogs of Babel. I am reading The Story of Edgar Sawtee for my book club in September, perfect timing wouldn't you say.

I have so many books I had planned to read before August 24th. I hope to get to them all. School starts for me August 24th. I have a couple books I hoped to review. Then a couple book club books, and a online book club (historical book club). I hope I can do it, and work at the same time before August 24th. The time is slipping by so quickly and we are almost into August already.

Help!! Help!! I feel so overwhelmed....
