What I Am Reading  

I got so many presents for Christmas, and I promise that I will make an entry about them. I just need time to sit down and really process all that I got from my generous and loving children. I am now reading one of the many books that I got from my daughter-in-law. I love memoirs and I love books about dogs, and the book Ambereen got me is all of the above:

I have Heard you callin in the night—book cover
Here's what goodreads.com has to say about it:

Thomas Healy was a drunk, a fighter, sometimes a writer, often unemployed, no stranger to the Glasgow police or to the courts. He came from the Gorbals, that byword for hard men and the school of hard knocks, and his life was going nowhere other than downhill. Then one day he bought a pup - a Dobermann. He called him Martin. Gradually man and dog became unshakeable allies, the closest of comrades, the best of friends. Martin, in more ways than one, saved Thomas Healy's life.

I shall give my review when I'm done. I'm currently on page 77 out of 204 pages. I started reading it on the evening of Christmas day. So far, I am thouroughly enjoying it. It's such an easy and beautiful read.

Sounds like a good book!

Are you at home? If so, can you come chat?
