The Bookies met tonight to discuss "The Art of Racing in the Rain." Well, we really met to talk about ourselves and our children. But, in regards to the book, Diane and I gave it a thumbs down. Anne and Martha gave it a thumbs up, and Nora, sat on the fence with a thumb sideways! The dog connection in the book was fun, but I thought it was a dog that knew too much. Anne thinks all dogs are omniscient. (At least all 10 of her dogs.)
All though we spent time catching up on our children, we spent a good deal of time talking about our dogs. We are a sad lot! I like to think we talked about our dogs because the book was about a dog, but perhaps there is a good deal of transfer of emotions going on here!
