I just finished reading The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Like Marley and Me it had a very emotional ending. Keep a tissue handy at the end, if you read this book.

It's in my "read next pile," thanks for the warning.

Just finished "Liberty Falling" by Nevada Barr. Now I'm reading "The Bronxville Book Club" by Pamela Hackett Hobson.

I'm reading "No One Would Listen" by Harry Markopolos.......the Bernie Madoff expose which could have been possibly prevented nearly 10 years before it was discovered had the SEC listened to his and others' warnings and before billions were swindled and left so many people devastated......
