Finished Twilight

I finished all 4 books of Twilight and they were all very good. Stephanie weaves a good story.

I dont think i will reread them but loved it the first time.

Now I am reading Janet Evanovich first book of the Stephanie plum books, One for the Money. It is funny and a little suspenseful. Great for summer. I will try more of her books.

Just got a new book from a bonanzle seller txskys4today. It is Dewey the Library cat. Looks cute and I love my cats.

Between trips to take care of my elderly parents 2 hours away I have gotten so good summer reading done.

Summer Reading.

Summer reading is so much fun. This year I am starting with Twilight series. Great books, easy to read, not too scary and a great love story. Geared a little more towards the high school set, it is good of anyone ( chicks more than guys) and makes for easy reading.

Next I will read more of Sue Monk Kidd's books. I loved the Secret Life of Bees.

I also dug up some old Grisham books and have read them. I am slow keeping up with the latest authors.

What is up with your summer reading??

Jack the wonder Lab

This is my black Lab Jack. He is a rescue dog so to speak. When he was a puppy he came to our house and would not leave. He was about 2 months old, lost, cold and hungry. He moved in and stayed. But that is not the end of the story.

About a month later Jack got very very sick. The vet tested for him for everything Parvo, worms and the like. Nothing showed up as positive. The vet sent him home but he got sicker. Jack could not keep anything down. My husband loved this dog and took him back to the vet. Most people would have cut their losses on a street dog, but he insisted the vet put him on IV fluids and keep him there till he got well. Our vet ended up taking Jack home one night as he was sure he would be dead in the morning. Well, Jack was not dead, but got he a little better. In a few days he got to come home. My DH got had a thousand dollar vet bill. LOL

A few months later when he was about 6 months old a man stopped my son who was outside playing with Jack and asked where we got him. My son said he was a stray. The man said I think that is a puppy from a litter that was born around Christmas. (He bred Labs.) He continued that the pup came up missing and we always wondered where he went to. My son politely said, Well he ended up here, and if you want him back, my dad has a $1000.00 vet bill for you. The man laughed and said no I just wanted to make sure he got a good home.

Follow this to Bonanzle where you will get to see Jack in my booth!
