See, I knew I was behind the times ... I feel panic when I think about all the great books I don't know about.

YES ! Much.

My problem is when I love a book --- I read it 6 times.

Have you any idea what it takes to read all the Dune books multiple times... it takes a LOT of years. ... Owen Meany and me... we been bed partners for many many moons... I keep getting new insights... find new things...

6 wow!

I have a 'new ' copy of Owen Meany and been meaning to re read it. The first time I read it, I finished it on the beach in North Carolina, stomping my feet in the sand, going Yes! OMG!! Of course!--I loved it

I have a few copies --- I tend to loan the books I love and sometimes I don't get back and so I have a spare!

Someone told me about a great book this morning and now I can't remember it... running in the rain... it is told from the perspective of a dog. Has anybody heard of it or similiar title?

the art of racing in the rain is the title i think
yes i just finished a week or so ago and really liked it a lot--a book told by a dog would never have interested me if i hadn't been advised to read it by people who's book likes/dislikes are a lot like mine (don't you love to find people like that?) one is not a dog lover --not really even a dog "liker" and so i decided if she loved it i will too.

That is how many of the reviews began. " I am not a dog lover, but I love this book!"

yes I do. I know I'm going to really like a book when a short way into it I begin to worry about finishing it. Hate to say goodbye to the characters. I feel that way about the E Sawtelle book now and really just at the start.
