One of my favorite activities when going to the beaching is assembling a big stack of books to read. While at home I rarely have time to sit and literally read ALL day, while at the beach that is my primary activity. I have made a good dent in the books I have brought. The first book finished I would highly recommend, The Art of Racing in the Rain. I was a bit skeptical of reading another dog book but this one was super good. The story of Denny, ( the dog's owner) is told by Enzo the dog. I was hooked from the first page. It was a quick read that I couldn't put down, I laughed and definited cried. The ending was a bit predictable but I loved it just the same... go get this one! Next up was Pride and Predjudice and Zombies , I had picked this up many times and almost bought it, I was curious having read the Jane Austin original many years ago. I took the plunge and bought it at Target to read at the beach.I must admit it was alittle silly but it kept my attention and was definitely way different than most of what I read. I think die- hard Jane Austen fans my not care for it too much. Next on deck starting tomorrow is The Longest Trip Home. Both my hubby and my best friend loved this book by John Grogran and I am a big fan of Marley and Me so I am looking forward to this memoir of his youth! I will offer more book reviews as I work through my stack of books.
