Book Thoughts


I loved The Art of Racing in the Rain. Very sweet, clearly written by somebody who loves dogs, or at least one in particular. I don't give Molly nearly that much credit, but then again, she doesn't watch as much tv as Enzo did.

Speaking of books about dogs, have you had a chance to start Edgar Sawtelle? I know it's a huge undertaking. I'm interested in your thoughts.

Next on my list? I have a stack to get to. Stacks of books, stacks of magazines, and oh yes, it's catalog season. I chuck a lot of them, but I admit to a fascination with some of the more exotic ones. I'll post some of my favorites soon. You can tell the season of my life by my latest bedside reading: Menopause and Natural Hormones and The Sexy Years by Susan Somers. Shut up. I'm no Earth Mother type-- there's got to be a better way. Better living through chemistry. I'm on the bandwagon for bio-identical hormones. Roscoe and I have our big anniversary trip to Aruba coming up and I'd like to be able to enjoy it.

I haven't started the Sawtelle book yet. Soon, I hope. Glad you liked Racing in the Rain. I heard about it via David's blog, Midwestern Malaise.

Thanks Kate! I saw that "Racing" was #10 on the Washington Post fiction list. I'll check out the Simply Stated blog. I love Real Simple. I'm taking a stack of mags with us to Russ's sister's tomorrow. Have a great holiday!
