Not my favorite Albom book, but still a neat read.

I enjoyed this book. I liked Liz, and I absolutely loved Betty. All of the dogs warmed my heart. The overall story was very fun and interesting. But there was something about the writing that made me feel frustrated. Idk what it was, but it just got under my skin.
I'm glad I read it. But don't plan to read anymore from her.

I love the movie adaptation so I finally decided to read the book. The book is different but satisfying in its own way, but without the rich visuals of the film. Great narrator!

“I need your love
Come to me just in a dream
Come on and rescue me
Yes, I know, I can't be wrong
And baby, you're too headstrong”🎶




wanderinglynn One of my favorite movies. This is a rare time I liked the movie better than the book. 3mo
Eggs @wanderinglynn Mine too 😢 I‘ve ogled the book but can‘t pull the trigger. Should I read it? 3mo
wanderinglynn I gave it 2 stars but I didn‘t write a review. 🤦🏼‍♀️ And I read it back in 2008, so I couldn‘t tell you what I didn‘t like about it. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I‘d say skip it, but some people really liked it. 3mo
Eggs Thanks 🙏🏻 @wanderinglynn (edited) 3mo

This week we lost the sweetest reading companion in the world. My pup Ollie was 12 and a half. We lost him quickly and unexpectedly, and our hearts are broken. There was no better dog in the world. He was such a special part of our family. 🐾 💙

Thanks, @Eggs for the tag! 😊
1️⃣ A morning of doggy solitude: coffee, my NYT puzzle, and pups on the couch with me. #heaven
2️⃣ While subbing at my former high school, I asked a student to be quiet (she was loudly chatting with her friend while I was talking), I receive this reply: “Seriously, lady; what's your problem? It's Monday, I haven't seen her all weekend, so I'm chatting.“ Times have changed. 😳
3️⃣ introvert, softie, curious

Read4life Could you even imagine saying that to a teacher (or any adult) when we were in school? Where has respect gone? 6mo
jamield1993 My problem is your attitude and rudeness, Hun! Jeeeeez! 6mo
ShelleyBooksie I would never speak to a teacher like that!! 6mo
dabbe @Read4life, @jamield1993, and @ShelleyBooksie ... I used to have some excellent school-cred at that school. Now that I'm 2 years retired, that's no longer the case. The kids don't know me from Adam. Still, it was only one misfiring brain cell, onward and upward! 🤗 6mo
Eggs The ugly but real side of being a sub; I do understand that💔 6mo
