Reading Series: Strays [Chapter 2]

I had planned on getting this post up yesterday, but I was celebrating my partner’s birthday so I wasn’t on the computer until late. I hope my first post covering the prologue and first chapter of Strays inspired you to grab your own copy. For the readers who are new to my blog, I am … Continue reading

Reading Series: Strays

Hi everyone! New year, new books to read! I’m starting off this year’s Reading Series, in which I blog about the books I’m reading, with the novel Strays by Jennifer Caloyeras.

Reading Series: What’s Planned for 2018 (I hope you join me!)

As you guys know, last year I blogged as I read the nonfiction book Dogland. I feel like I blogged the book way too slowly, so this year I declare to pick up the pace and stick to a schedule. I know the first two books I will be reading and blogging about, so read … Continue reading

It’s the final chapter of the incredible non-fiction book, Dogland. After finishing the book (And no… I’m not crying… not at all!)

I am also still fundraising … Continue reading

Reading Series: Dogland – Dogs for Dollars [#readathon post]

As part of the 24 hour readathon (I don’t think I’ll make it 24 hours! I’m only halfway there…) I wanted to read, and hopefully finish, Dogland. The chapter I read tonight is about bad rescues and the harm they cause to the animal rescue movement. “I realized that rescue had become part of the … Continue reading

Reading Series: Dogland – Pet Deserts

“The shelter is at the back end of the equation. People need to realize these animals are not the shelter’s problem; they’re the community’s problem.” I love this quote, which comes from Chris Protzman, interviewed by Dogland author Jacki Skole, who helped found the Blount County Animal Center. The chapter I’m currently blogging, Pet Deserts, … Continue reading
