The Story of Edgar Sawtelle

Just so you know, I got there WAY before Oprah did.

But look - this book is AMAZING. Seriously. It's so good, I'm disappointed it's the author's first book, because I want to read more by him!

The author's name is David Wroblewski. It's a wonderful book.

I couldn't put it down.

It's also highly recommended for dog lovers.

I saw O talking about this the other night, and it sounded great. Will definitely have to add it to my TBR list. TFS!

I had been planning to check out her book club list again when I start reading, I think she has some great selections.

It's about a mute boy whose family breeds this special kind of dog. It's kind of hard to describe, but it was such a wonderful book. The author's got an amazing way with words, and I read it in three sittings.

I have it in a stack next to my bed. My mil bought it this summer and left it for me to read. I keep forgetting to pick it up and she hasn't asked me to send it...maybe I should read it??!! Smile

Peace,
