It’s Getting “Hot” in Here…

Oh, August. You make us yearn for the days when we weren’t already sweating by noon. The days when we didn’t feel the necessity to stand for hours in the frozen food section of the grocery store.  The days when a constant worry didn’t involve leather seats and bare legs. Those days – you know, like June.

Instead, we are forced to focus on the “hot”. As in, “Wow, the temperature is already in the 90s and it’s not even 9 AM”, not as in “Hoo, baby, lookin’ good.” So, in infamous honor of the heat, here are a few “hot” books. Whether or not you read them in front of the air conditioner is up to you.
