Smokin' Roast for August

The corn is piled on roadside stands. The crickets sing all through the day. The dark and sweet aroma of hickory smoke is drifting over the countryside.

Crack open a beer, settle yourself in a lawn chair, and try not to drool waiting for your food. The books are a-cracklin'!

This month bring your paper plate and napkins for:

  • Monday, August 25: Stephanie Bodeen, The Compound - Set somewhere near the time of the apocalypse, the story tells of Eli and his family, who are forced to live in the compound his father has built for them.

  • Tuesday, August 26: Laurel Snyder, Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains - Lucy sets off for the Scratchy Mountains to solve the mystery of her missing mother.

  • Wednesday, August 27: J.J. Salem, Tan Lines - Three young women on a wild Hamptons summer reinvent themselves.

  • Thursday, August 28: Susan McBride, The Debs - Four very different girls find themselves on a collision course of debutantes.

  • Friday, August 29: Brian Jay Jones, Washington Irving: An American Original - Follow Washington Irving through his childhood in a religious home in New York, his entry into law, the death of his fiancĂ©e, his years abroad and, of course, his writing career.

We'll be open for business 6:00 a.m. Eastern Time, Monday, August 25th. Make sure you get to the potato salad before Uncle Billy Bob gets his unpleasantries all over it.

Remember that our 24-hour business hours for the week means that as soon as one contest is done, we start cooking with another! No waiting!

Stephanie the roastee, here. I'm still singing those catchy tunes from the Olympics closing ceremonies. I bring plenty of goat cheese and Ritz crackers, along with about a case of Lipton diet green tea.

Well, it's Monday morning and nothing is happening.

Oh, wait. It's 4.30am EST. Maybe that's why.

Chris, when did you get that picture?? The neighbors love (actually hate) when I rev it up. I can go from 0 to medium in 6.8 seconds.

LOL, Shona. :D I should have whipped a photo out sooner.
