what I'm reading at the moment...

The last time I was at Starbucks I bought a book on impulse -- The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. The book jacket proclaimed: "(This book) has everything: love, tragedy, redemption, danger...!" How could I not snatch it right up?! Plus it looked interesting because it's narrated by a dog.

A canine narrator! I'll bet HotCup and Diane are probably both slapping their respective foreheads and asking, "Why didn't I think of having my dog (Mocha Java Puppy and/or Scout) write a book?!" I'll admit I was thinking, "Geez, Marble could have penned a novel." Of course he would have called it:


Yep, an entirely different philosophical approach to life.

Look at that face, though. What's a ruined couch or two?

Marble looks very contemplative.

Haha!
I loved the book. Molly wants to know why no one is publishing her thoughts?

that is too dang funny! i was at starbucks and did see the book and thought "why would i bother to buy a book that pictures a yellow lab on the cover?" hrumph. same with "Marley & Me"...

i'd purchase Marble's book before the yellow doggie ones... except Scout of course, b/c she's not a lab.
