you'll love the Shack. I often had to go back and reread a page or so, cause I found out I wasn't really paying attention while I read. Then I'd be reading along and have no idea what was going on. LOL. it was well worth the time to do that though. I'm going to reread it, as soon as I can get it back, it's made the rounds at my work and now making the rounds of my friends and their families.

I just finished "Lads Before the Wind" by Karen Pryor, where she shares how she got into the whole area of positive reinforcement training, starting with her pioneering work with dolphins. In this expanded edition, she tells what she did between the end of the book (1975) and "now" (2000). The book that pretty much put her in the spotlight, "Don't Shoot the Dog!" was great reading, too.

I just started her newest (2009) book, "Reaching the Animal Mind," and I'm loving it! She even has a web site (of the same name) that provides photos and videos which correspond with each chapter of the book. Her writing style is quite enjoyable, and she has a delightful sense of humor. I'm learning SO much!

I'm glad you asked! I thought Merle's Door was absolutely one of the best books I've ever read in my life! His writing style totally engages the reader, and helps us see life through Merle's eyes. The author gave Merle the freedom to just be a dog, and the communication they shared was nothing short of phenomenal. Yeah, keep the Kleenex handy, but it's worth it.

I'm currently working on Jan Burke's "Bloodlines". If you follow her work, it's an Irene Kelly novel. It's pretty good so far. I'm about half way through it.

Just finished it. It was good. A couple of the twists were as I predicted. She did several twists and turns, spanned 42 years in three parts but in the end she tied a pretty ribbon around it and resolved all of the questions. Worth a read. I picked up a new copy in hardcover for 6 bucks at Ollies.

My mom recomended a book to me.

I started reading it and thought my mom was crazy.. The character was sadistic..


Best.book.EVER.

Loved it.

Heartstopper by Joy Fielding.. Seriously, I stayed up until 8 am just to finish it. It is filled with twists.. But the last twist is just.. wow.. I still cant get over it. It blew my mind.. Never thought I would love another book this much other then the twilight series.
