Our Best Reads For July

Gerard's Favorite:
Prairie Tale by Melissa Gilbert
What an amazing story! When I found out Melissa had written a book, I knew one thing--I had to read that book! It took awhile for me to finally get it from the library but it sure was worth the wait. Whatever you think you know about Melissa, trust me, you don't. But the good news is you will after you read this book. What a story Melissa has to tell! To say I was surprised would be an understatement. You will laugh and cry; all emotions are in play in PRAIRIE TALE. One thing you won't be is bored! My two favorite parts of the book are her Little House years and her relationship with Rob Lowe. The ending is just outstanding too. Super job, Melissa! My expectations were met and then some!

Karen's Favorite:
How To Speak Dog by Sarah Whitehead is very informative and practical for learning about dogs and how to train them. It is geared to kids but I liked it too because it's easy to read and very attractive with lots of colored pages and pictures. It gives easy step-by-step instructions that work for teaching dogs specific commands and checklists to evaluate if the dog has mastered the trick. It also includes some game suggestions for playing with your dog. I give it 4 paws up! It was helpful to me.

We Both Liked Sworn to Silence by Linda Castillo which was a murder mystery thriller.

Thanks for sharing your reads. I definitely have to get Gerard's book because I loved Little House on the Prairie and Melissa Gilbert.

I'm glad the dog book helped you Karen. They are fun to read and it's fun to learn new things.

I like reading your recommendations because we're always looking for good books to read. Right now, we are reading "When will there be good news" by Kate Atkinson. So far, it's a pretty convoluted tale!
