‘Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.’ – Groucho Marx

Inky's Fri-Yay August 16

Well, you’ll be pleased to know that I survived being out and about in the real world at Bendigo Writers Festival last week. Our Inky Judge Fred and Shadow Judge Imogen did us proud! You should have seen them! Up on stage at a big theatre in front of 270 people. There’s a post on the Inky Awards Blog all about it! You can literally, read all about it! Right here! On Inside a Dog!

Because Inside a Dog is where there is so much is happening! (Don’t think about that sentence too much!)

We are thrilled to have ACE contributor ellipsis back with words of the day and reviews and quizzes and comments. We missed you ellipsis!

Sylvs at NOVELty reads has a hilarious series about interrupted reading and stalled book borrowing that is all too close to the bone for us bookish peeps. And over on The Between The Pages Book Club is a review of this month’s book, Wicked Fox. Have you read it yet? And if that’s not enough book club fun for you then join in our very own Inside a Dog Lit Club. We announced our Lit Club Discussion Leaders and the postperson will be delivering the book to your door. But anyone can join in. Run out and grab the book Catching Teller Crow and join in the discussion!
