We at Project Bookmark Canada are so thrilled and so thankful for all of your support during our Bookmark Summer Reads campaign. We're having a blast adding all of your book suggestions to our to-be-read pile for potential bookmarks. And even MORE fun reading them!

Today we're announcing our newest theme: (Escape the) Heat, a fitting choice given the heat waves recently experienced in (some parts of) Canada. We're on the lookout for works of fiction or poetry where heat is a theme, whether a character or narrator finds a clever way of escaping it, makes the most of it, or simply succumbs to it by collapsing in a hammock and not moving til summer's end. Or, maybe it's a book that helps you beat the summer's heat by living vicariously through a story or poem set against a wintery backdrop or snowy tundra.

Everything you need to know about Bookmark Summer Reads can be found here. Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and use the hashtag #BookmarkSummerReads. Every suggestion made is a chance to win one of our weekly prizes.

Thank you for your continued help building Canada's literary trail!
