Thursday Dogs-n-Books

Little Lailah--ever watchful--four months old

Got a new book stack via Amazon and Paperback Swap.com. Mary Kruger's title, Knit Fast Die Young makes me laugh at its cleverness. I never knew knitting was life threatening!! The Secret Language of Knitters is a funsy book for a swap partner. Anne of Green Gables is for a read-along. I'm now reading The Diana Chronicles and am enjoying Tina Brown's writing as well as her entree to British society.




Imagine that everything is going just swimmingly. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and all’s right with the world. You’re practically bouncing from health and have money in your pocket. The kids are playing and laughing, the puppy is chewing in the cutest possible manner on an officially-sanctioned chew toy, and in between moments of laughter for pure joy, you pick up a book to read . . .
What is it?

Maybe something like Beethoven's Hair by Russell Martin or The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I must say that my reading choices are not entirely determined by my current mood. Most of the time, it's as simple as Oh! I want to read that!!

What books would you choose in this scenario?

If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales?

There are so many interesting things to see out the front door. What a sweet pic.

She is so still, a visitor might think she was a statue. Until they got too close :)

She is a beauty....so alert and curious too.

Lailah is beautiful and regal. Love her name (Layla! going through my mind now). I have Beethoven's Hair on my TBR list and I really should get to it soon.
