Can’t put the book down

My Boston Terrier bookmark and "A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron

My Boston Terrier bookmark and “A Dog’s Purpose” by W. Bruce Cameron

Today the book “A Dog’s Purpose” by W. Bruce Cameron arrived in our mailbox and I have not been able to put it down.

I even took a bath so I could keep reading while bathing. And I read while I cooked dinner. And I read during commercial breaks, counting the minutes until I could read again. Now I’ve nearly finished the book!

It feels so good to devour a book like this again. My chronic migraines often prevent me from reading as much as I used to, so this felt great!

And the book, written from the dog’s point of view, is so moving. I cried and I laughed out loud. It reminded me of our sweet Abby and the funny things she used to do and the special bond we shared. I even flashed back to the piece I wrote from Abby’s point of view about our adventures in Venice, Italy. This book was truly delightful, reminding me of how much I also loved Garth Stein’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain.”

Today’s #OneGoodThing was this funny and tender book so beautifully written. It has brought comfort to my grieving soul and I can’t wait to finish it so Mama can read it too.

Day 335 of 366.
