The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

I just finished ready this book for my book club. I had heard great things about it and it has been on my 'to-be-read' list for quite awhile. I was glad that I finally 'had' to read it for our discussion, otherwise I know I would have just left it on my list to read ... someday.

Can I just say, that I loved this book? I came to love and care for the characters, (most of them anyway) but especially Edgar, what an amazing young man he was. And the dogs, how can you not love the dogs? They really are the main characters of the book, as someone pointed out in our discussion. This book ends up being about the dogs and the people play a secondary role in the story.

I have a sister who is a veterinarian in Colorado and I thought about her a lot as I was reading this book. Since this story made me think of her, to me, that is a sign that she needs to read this book too. She is a very special and caring vet and I know that she will be taken in by this story just as I was. I am going to be sending my copy to her so that she can enjoy these wonderful dogs. Oh, and the people's story too.

Crazy, busy weekend!

The kiddos are coming up/over on Saturday to go to the Disney Live program that is here in town this weekend. It will be fun to watch the kid's faces when they get to see Mickey 'in person'. And then the football game is on in the evening - I would love to go to Cubby's to watch the game, but we'll see.

So, what that means is -- very little time for me to read this weekend. I am currently reading Vixen courtesy of the B&N First Look Book Club. It is a very good book and I am pacing myself to not get ahead of the discussion. So in between reading Vixen, I am reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle for one of my other book groups.

A lot of books, so little time! I may have to take a day off from work to get some quality reading time in! =)
