Our book club's choice for November


Our book club's choice for November is The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein.  


  " In Mongolia, when a dog dies, he is buried high in the hills so people cannot walk on his grave. The dog's master whispers into the dog's ear his wishes that the dog will return as a man in his next life.  Then his tail is cut off and put beneath his head, and a piece of meat or fat is placed in his mouth to sustain his soul on its journey; before he is reincarnated, the dog's soul is freed to travel the land, to run across the high desert plains for as long as it would like.
   I learned that from a program on the National Geographic channel, so I believe it is true.  Not all dogs return as men, they say; only those who are ready. 
    I am ready."


(Excerpt from The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein)

  • Have you read this book?
  • What did you thin of it?
  • Does reading this excerpt make you want to read the book?
I'm thinking that our book club meeting in November is going to be very lively and animated.  Lots of opinions and great discussion.  I can hardly wait!!

I haven't read this title, but the cover is quite appealing.

Visiting from the Alexa Blog hop today and hope you'll stop by my blog sometime.
