Book Beginnings/The Friday 56 - 2/10/2017




Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice and Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader. The idea is to share a sentence or so from the first page and the 56th page of the book you are currently reading!  Also, I will now also include a brief synopsis.

A Dog's Purpose (A Dog's Purpose, #1)

Heartwarming, insightful, and often laugh-out-loud funny, A Dog's Purpose is not only the emotional and hilarious story of a dog's many lives, but also a dog's-eye commentary on human relationships and the unbreakable bonds between man and man's best friend. This moving and beautifully crafted story teaches us that love never dies, that our true friends are always with us, and that every creature on earth is born with a purpose.

Beginning of the Book

One day it occurred to me that the squeaky, smelly things squirming around next to me were my brothers and sisters.  I was very disappointed.

Page 56:

Familiar was the warm, squirming presence of puppies on either side of me.  Familiar, too, was the shoving clamber for a turn at the teat and the rich, life-giving milk that was the reward for all the pushing and climbing.  Somehow, I was a puppy again, helpless and weak, back in the Den.

Just started this one on Thursday, not even at Page 56 yet, but enjoying it already being from the dog's perspective.

  2. This sounds good. My book this week is Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews - the latest in her Kate Daniels urban fantasy series. Happy reading!

  3. I saw previews from the movie recently...the book sounds like it shows a wonderful series of "incarnations" for the dog. Thanks for sharing.

    Here's mine: “BEHIND HER EYES”

  4. I so want to read this and see the movie. I love dogs and have read a few stories from the dog's point of view. I'm sure this will make me laugh and cry:)
