Just finished Garth Stein's new book. It was really, really good. I am also a big fan of car racing having grown up near the Indy Speedway so I love the dog's passion for racing!

The book got sad around the middle so I wasn't able to stop reading until I got to the happy ending! It was worth it. It really makes you think!

There's a cute trailer for the book here: http://dogtime.com/the-art-of-racing-in-the-rain.html

I just found this book at Starbucks the other day. I'm really hoping to get it and put it on my "summer reading" list.

I'm glad you gave it a good review!! blue dog

I just saw this book this morning at Starbucks! It looked really good, but I didn't have time to finish reading the synopsis (people behind me in line were getting antsy). Thanks for the good reviews! I'll have to check it out at the library...I wonder what the catalog number is for Dog Lit! BOL! laugh out loud

I'll have what- you're having!

I guess I'm a little slow to find out about this book! I just checked the county library's online catalog and there are 72 holds on the 13 copies in the county system! Yikes! frown Maybe I'll just go up to Powell's and get a copy to add to my own Dog Lit Library.

Born to retrieve

I really loved this book. Got a copy at Sam's CLub for around $15 to add to my Dog Book collection..............now on to "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle", a debut novel by David Wroblewski that is making a lot of "noise" in the most positive ways. Quoting from IndieBound.org -"Driven by powerful characters, particularly mute Edgar abd the amazing dog Almondine, this story of a family's destruction will resonate with readers long after completion." Sounds meaty............Jess, Dusty, Zoe, Dylan and their HM
