Dog Days of Summer Reading
|The phrase "dog days of summer"|
Describes when Canis Major is highest in the sky
July 3 to Aug. 11
It is hot in Tennessee!
The next two days the weatherperson has called for 105 heat index and actual temperatures right at 100 degrees . Due to the high temperatures my family and I are in the house with the blinds closed in the air-conditioning. Thank goodness for air conditioning! And thank goodness for a good book!
Here are a few reading lists for this summer .
