I’m going to try really hard to complete this list – posted by Gwen Bell who I follow on Twitter. The object is to write on the prompt given for each day in December. Very cool idea! Ya’ll know that I’m not the best writer in the world so bear with me. Here’s the link if you want to join in: bestof09
So here is my answer to the prompt for today: “December 4 Book. What book – fiction or non – touched you? Where were you when you read it? Have you bought and given away multiple copies?”
The best book I read all year… actually in all my life (it’s that good) is “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. The book takes place in Seattle – where I spend a lot of time since half my family lives there. When visiting Seattle this summer, My aunt said I should read it because not only does it take place in one of my favorite cities, but also because the story is told by a dog (and we all know I love dogs!) Once I started the book, I could not put it down. I have given my copy to a friend and have let all my friends know about it. (All my friends happen to be dog lovers too. weird! :) Everyone must read this – whether you are a dog lover or not. It will make you appreciate what it is to be human. Trust me. It is an incredibly funny and heartwarming story! And no….. it’s not like “Marley & Me”. You will need a box of Kleenex during some parts but it’s not a sad story. It’s an empowering one!
