WWW Wednesday 10/23/13

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions:

• What are you currently reading? • What did you recently finish reading? • What do you think you’ll read next?

What am I currently reading? Multiple books at the same time this week.  For reviews and pleasure and well, why not?
The Forest Bull  by Terry Maggert. Review will be posted next week.
Three lovers who stalk and kill the immortals that drift through South Florida (tourists are a moveable feast, after all) are living a simple life of leisure- until one of them is nearly killed by woman who is a new kind of lethal. When Ring Hardigan isn’t making sandwiches for, and with, his two partners, Waleska and Risa (they’re cool like that), he’s got a busy schedule doing the dirty work of sending immortals to the ever after. Wally and Risa provide linguistics, logistics, and finding the right place for him and his knife– together, they’re a well-oiled machine, and they’ve settled into a rhythm that bodes ill for the Undying. Warlocks, vampires, succubae and the odd ghoul have all fallen to their teamwork. Life is tough, but they soldier on killing the undead, liberating their worldly goods for charity, and generally achieving very little.

How Dogs Love Us: A Neuroscientist and His Adopted Dog Decode the Canine Brain by Gregory Berns. I can’t say enough about this book. I love dogs. 

The powerful bond between humans and dogs is one that’s uniquely cherished. Loyal, obedient, and affectionate, they are truly “man’s best friend.” But do dogs love us the way we love them? Emory University neuroscientist Gregory Berns had spent decades using MRI imaging technology to study how the human brain works, but a different question still nagged at him: What is my dog thinking?
Berns and his dog  embark on a remarkable journey and be the first to glimpse the inner workings of the canine brain. Painstakingly, the two worked together to overcome the many technical, legal, and behavioral hurdles. Berns’s research offers surprising results on how dogs empathize with human emotions, how they love us, and why dogs and humans share one of the most remarkable friendships in the animal kingdom.

How Dogs Love Us answers the age-old question of dog lovers everywhere and offers profound new evidence that dogs should be treated as we would treat our best human friends: with love, respect, and appreciation for their social and emotional intelligence.

The Wedding by Julie Garwood. This is one of my comfort reads. I re-read many of my favorites and I need some comfort this week. Written in 1996 and I still enjoy.

What did I recently finish reading?

Unwind (Unwind Dystology) by Neal Shusterman. I have read this book before and can only say WOW! My what to read next is why I finished reading this book. Then I will do reviews.
In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would “unwind” them.

What am I reading next? (After I finish what am I currently reading).
The Unwind Collection: Unwind; Unstrung, An Unwind Story; UnWholly; UnSouled (Unwind Dystology).
