Announcing Summer Reading CONTEST
Following the success of the RBS
Suggested Holiday Reading List in December
2003 the RBS
invites humor fans to submit suggestions for a list of light, humorous

(b) Composed in the English language;
(c) In some way, even by a stretch, appropriate to summer 2004;
(d) Humorous; and
(e) Of such a tone and length as to be appropriate to read aloud among
friends or family.
(f) Both (b) and (d)
(g) None of the above
(h) All of this above
(i) Served ice cold with a twist of lime.
Contributions will be judged based on:
