|Odie wants to know if this is safe. He's already worked out the claws.|
So home he came. He completely threw off the dog's life for a couple of days but now everyone has settled and we're enjoying his lively antics.

I have a good collection of these Penguin green crime books but I was able to find 10 I didn't have. All first published and I'm quite happy with that.
Penguin Poets: John Donne, Thomas Hardy
Robert Graves and the Penguin Book of Comic
and Curious Verse. Beautiful covers.
Twenty five books later I continue to add to the collection. A couple I have already but several were as new because she bought them and always thought she'd read them but ran out of time. She's older now and wants to move them on. There were some from the main series, some Penguin Poets I coveted and some original Penguin Classics I didn't have. I left the vintage Pelicans behind because I have to draw the line somewhere. I was quite pleased with the lot for $1.00 per book.
What am I reading this week? I am reading a wonderfully quirky book A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. I will have more to say about that later. I am only 96 (out of 422 pages) into it but I'm trying to get it done before our book club talks about it the first week of March. I need to read 25 pages a day to get it done. So far I'm ahead of that.
I hope everyone else is having a decent week and if you know anything about any of these books or if you'd like to sign up to babysit Cousin Eddie when I'm trying to catalogue my books or work on my jigsaw puzzle of 1000 pieces I'd appreciate it.
Cousin Eddie is gorgeous - as is the look on the dog's face! So glad things are looking up in your neck of the woods. Enjoy your weekend.ReplyDelete
Thanks Vicki, it's great to hear from you. Spending the weekend sorting Penguin books. It's never ending!ReplyDelete
That look is familiar, I have a rescue dog and three rescue cats one of which is particularly fond of Lily (dog) and loves to curl up close to her, she gets that must you get so close look, as far as she is concerned cats are just all teeth and claws waiting for an opportunity to strike somewhere soft.ReplyDelete
Love the green penguins, daughter has just discovered classic crime and can't get enough of the old green penguins and the recent reprints in the new green penguin range.
Glad your daughter has discovered green Penguins. Lots of great reading there. The dog (Odie) is so afraid he'll do something wrong and get in trouble so he goes along with everything whether he's comfortable or not. He's so funny.ReplyDelete
I'll be curious to hear what you think about A Tale for the Time Being. I've enjoyed two of her previous books and have a copy of this on my shelf, but haven't been inspired to read it... yet.ReplyDelete
I'd not heard of her until my book club picked this book. Will let you know. I'm about halfway through it now.ReplyDelete
Need to finish it by first week in March for meeting.
