Shelter Dogs - Traer Scott

I own a shelter dog. One look into her eyes and I knew I had to take her home. Traer Scott's photography captures all their dignity, fear, pride, and love. Scott presents each dog as we would see it in a shelter: posing, trying to catch our attention, wanting to find a way home. Apart from the pictures, the best part of this book is its desire to do something more. A portion of every sale goes to support the ASPCA, Scott includes a short history of every dog at the end and the index provides many ways to get involved. Give this book a good home today!

The Razor's Edge - W. Somerset Maugham

Spectacular. Maugham creates engrossing characters whose flaws make them all the more real. Honesty of narration (as distinguished from reliability) is the key to the whole story. It's hard not to think about how shocking this outsider story must have been when published; it’s also hard to ignore the questions its autobiographical elements raise about Maugham himself.

Pinocchio - Carlo Collodi, Umberto Eco, Geoffrey Brock

I love it when a children’s story is enjoyable to read as an adult. Pinocchio is cast as a perfect brat. The incredible stories and scenes in this book are accentuated by wonderfully obvious and that’s-why-little-boys-shouldn’t-lie moments. This fable reads like Calvino without the realism, just the magic.
