Favorite Summer Reads Blogfest Announced!

I created this blog in August 2010, and in honor of its one year blogoversary, I've decided to create the Favorite Summer Reads Blogfest.

All you have to do is post on your blog between August 24-27 and tell us what is your favorite summer read. Please post a picture of a book's cover art and why it is your favorite summer read. Then we can hop around and find great books.

Now, of course, there will be prizes too. I have picked some of my favorite reads and placed them into categories. When you sign up in the form below, pick which category you want to have a chance to win books from. After the blogfest, I'll pick four winners randomly, who will have their choice of books from the category they selected.
