  • The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

    I rarely read novels in which an animal is a significant character, but the companionship of my two cats over the past twelve years has made me a bit more aware of this type of fiction. I recently enjoyed a touching new novel , The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein, a Seattle-area author. In part...

  • Love & Death

    Sunday night I finished reading The Ghost in Love by Jonathan Carroll . I still haven't figured out how I really feel about it. It's a little bit creepy, a little bit funny and a lot weird. It is a book that entertains, but also makes you think about some big things. It's a lot about love...

  • The Longest Trip Home

    After reading several mixed reviews on John Grogan's newest book , I took the plunge and decided I'd see for myself. I really didn't think there was any way I could like the book as much as the bestselling " Marley and Me ", but I didn't think it would be as bad as some of the...

  • Ghost's Hour, Spook's Hour

    How does a kid feel when the electricity goes out in the middle of the night and he can't find anyone but his dog? That's what happens to the boy in Ghost's Hour, Spook's Hour by Eve Bunting. Donald Carrick's pictures are very realistic as boy and dog open a creaky bedroom door and...
