I have been so busy trying to keep up with the book reviews that I am committed to doing for publishers, that I haven't shared what I've been reading for my own pleasure in a long while.
But believe me, no matter what, I am pretty much always reading something! So many books, so little time...
I have enjoyed the last two so much, I thought I would share.
The first is Fifteen Dogs, by Canadian writer, Andre Alexis.
But after overcoming my prejudice, I decided to give it a try. Its about 15 dogs that are given human-like brains (and therefore cognitive abilities, intellect and emotions). I loved it!
I actually think that dog lovers may not like it because its a pretty cynical perspective on what dogs think of humans.
In any case, read it, its awesome.
The other recent gem I read was Euphoria, by Lily King.
It is loosely based on experiences of anthropologist Margaret Mead and others, though it is a fictional story. Having always found anthropology fascinating, I also adored this book, though it is also a love story as well.
Both are short reads, so perfect for a vacation if you are planning a little spring getaway.
I hope you'll give them a try.
