For as long as I can remember, summer has represented seemingly endless hours to devote to reading.This year is no exception. My stack of books to read is ENORMOUS!! These are a few that I finished recently.
I liked all of these and am passing them on to friends to read -- all except the top one. I LOVED this book, but it was such a tear jerker I am afraid to give it to friends without a warning to be prepared. Of course, the author does prepare you in the very first pages that the storyteller (a dog) is near the end of his life as he tells us the story, but I had no idea how deeply I would react. Near the end I could barely read the print through my tears!!! It is going onto my bookshelf. When I feel strong some day, I probably will re-read it because I fell in love with the dog and how he teaches life lessons through the world of car racing.
