books aren’t just what we do, they’re who we are

Recent Reads

After watching the debate last night and catching up on Fringe (is anyone else watching that? What do we think about it?), I needed to do something that didn’t require too much deep thought, and allowed me to curl up in the armchair in Rexroth’s office under a handmade quilt. Tribute by Nora Roberts fit the bill perfectly. A little bit of mystery, a little bit of romance, some humor, and to really appeal to me: home renovations. Exactly what I was looking for. I always enjoy Roberts’ books, and think she’s got a really great way with secondary characters. In this one, my absolute favorite was the dog, Spock. Who has a little teddy bear he drops at the feet of the main character when she needs a pick me up. He was just too adorable, and completely realized.
Do any of your WIPs feature dogs or cats — or any animals? Are they pets, or are they characters?
