The Dog Days Of Summer Reading: Pets And Books! | Writer’s Relief

Submit To Our Review Board

Our Review Board is now open. Submit your prose, poetry, or book today!

DEADLINE: Thursday, August 22nd, 2019

Here at Writer’s Relief, we love books, pets, and summer reading! So what better time to celebrate all of these things than during the dog days of summer! After all, dogs can teach writers about life, love, and success. So “paws” for a minute and check out our furry friends with some of their most treasured reads. Yes, these are really photos of our book-loving pets! And yes, we are a little surprised that some of the pets are a bit…unexpected.

Pets And Books: Doggone Good Reads!

Here are some dog-eared readers of dog-eared books…

“Yawn…is it time to read Harry Potter yet?”

 

“Oh! What’s this book about? Dog…training? Oh no…”

 

“We double-dog dare you to read to us!”

 

“This is my book. Mine! Don’t make me get ruff!”

 

“Doggone it, I fell asleep reading Joyce AGAIN!”

 

“I relate a little too much to this book!”

As bona fide bookworms, we know dogs aren’t the only pets that love books! Here are a few more family members who are wild about reading…

 

“I’ve tamed many shrews. They were very tasty. Now let me finish reading!”

 

“I picked this book because I’m a cat and I like fish.”

 

“Yeah, yeah, Stephen King is scary, but Watership Down is still the most terrifying book I’ve read as a rabbit!”

 

“This book isn’t mine! I’m just…holding it for a friend.”

 

“Says here catnip is supposed to produce a calming effect. Right.”

 

“Wait… I turn into a WHAT!?”

 

“I’m here to terrorize a very small city and…well, dang it, I like to read too!”

 

Question: Which pet is your favorite reading companion?

Seven Fairy-Tale Versions That Will Freak You Out | Writer’s Relief

Once upon a time, February 26 became National Tell a Fairy Tale Day! And while we all enjoy these timeless classics with their “happily ever after” endings, the early versions of many fairy tales—before Disney created the popular, family-friendly adaptations—are often quite dark, creepy, and even graphic enough to freak out unsuspecting readers.
