"My Lover's Lover"
by Maggie O'Farrell

I love Maggie O'Farrell and a few years ago when I was in England, I picked up this, her second book. Once again I was enthralled and fell deeply into a story that made me feel like I was eavesdropping. What a delightful story!

"More Than You Know"
by Beth Gutcheon

This haunting story which combines two time periods tells the story of young love and lost in an island community. I loved the story and have found that it has stuck with me in the past few days.

Whispering to Dogs

"Cesar's Way: The Natural, Everyday Guide to Understanding and Correcting Common Dog Problems"
by Cesar Millan

Mot's Mom wanted me to read this book since I dog sit so much. I LOVE Cesar and have begun using his techniques on people and dogs alike. He has some great tips and the dogs I watch are becoming even better dogs than they were before.

"Shutterbabe: Adventures in Love and War"
by Deborah Copaken Kogan

Meg loaned me this book and while I wasn't sure that I was a fan of Deborah Copaken Kogan at the beginning, I did begin to enjoy her toward the end. She's lived an interesting life and had many adventures. Her life is an inspiration to aspiring journalists and photographers.

"Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World"
by Rita Golden Gelman

This book really resonated with me since I often tell people that I am living the nomadic lifestyle. Rita Golden Gelman decided to take life by the horns and live the life she had always dreamed of. She moved in to villages on the far side of the world as different from her life in Los Angeles as possible. She learned so much about other cultures and even more about herself. She's caused me to dream and realize that I too can make this happen if I can develop a plan to make it happen. I'm planning!
