This book made me cry. Loved it. Shamefully, I skimmed over many of the racing references, but I don't feel that it impacted my appreciation for the story. The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. (Powell's Books Staff Pick)
March 13th-today is Lisa Lutz's birthday. Happy Birthday Lisa! Celebrate this zany writer by reading one of her Spellman series, starting with the Spellman files and Revenge of the Spellmans. Her books are light-hearted, fun and funny mysteries. I love her style...and the best part? They are set in San Francisco-one of my favorite cities!
