Summer Reading with Stanley the Dog
Did you know that dogs like reading? Yes, we do.
When my humans read, they stay in one place. I can lie next to them.
They read in nice places: the beach, a sunny deck, the lawn. I love reading.
I can usually tell if they like a book. They will read the same one for days, hours at a time.
This was true forLittle Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. From what I gathered, it was an easy read. It had likeable characters. It captured the complex relationships between mothers and daughters.
Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout was another favourite read. I recognized her name as the same author of Lucy Barton and Olive Kitteridge. Her books seem to make my humans ponder love, loss and human frailty. I don’t mind as I get extra cuddles.
The pages of The Woman in The Window by A.J. Finn turned slow at first but sped up near the end of the book. Not bad for a first book by a new mystery writer.
Here’s hoping the weather stays warm and the reading lists grow longer.
