July 2013 Synchroblog – Light Summer Reading

2 Jul

It’s the dog days of summer … really hot in some places, really not in others.  We think some light summer reading is in order this month.  So … we’re asking you to tell a story.  Not just any story, but tell a story of your favorite prank.  Maybe you were the prankee.  Maybe you were the prankster.  Maybe you just heard about the prank from friends.  Whatever manner you know about the prank … we’re looking forward to reading the story of the best prank you know about.

The date of this month’s synchroblog has changed to the 3rd Wednesday of the month, July 17.

If you wish to participate, leave a comment below with your name, and the link to your blog post.  Please do this by the evening of Tuesday, July 16 to make sure you’re included.


Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime

It’s Summer time and the livin’ is easy … (sung in your best sultry Billie Holliday voice)

Well … it may not be easy, but we like to think it is and sometimes we even sneak in a fun book or two. Beach novels. Vacation books. Road trip reading. Or a movie … oh, yeah … the summer movies are grand and glorious!! Monsters, aliens, cowboys, chick flicks, wizards … and this year I see they’ve even combined cowboys AND aliens into one movie!!

So … what’s your escape mode of choice? Do you have just one? Do you have a must read book for the beach or get-away? Why? What did it make you think about or dream about? Or did you like it because you didn’t think?

What movie would you recommend this summer? Why did you like it? Here’s your chance to play Siskel & Ebert for a waiting world …

Join in the August Synchroblog and share your favorite books and/or movies of the summer. Please plan to submit your name, name of blog, title of post and link in the comment section of the August announcement right here by 6 p.m. EST 8/9/2011 if you would like to be included in this synchroblog.
