How Dogs Love Us: A Neuroscientist and His Adopted Dog Decode the Canine Brain by Gregory Berns. My Pre Order from Coming Soon and I Love Dogs and Animals arrived! So very first thing this morning I am reading because I love books – and dogs!

“Callie was dancing in the lab. Zooming from person to person, the little black village dog with the energy of a rocket knew that all the months of training had led to this moment. Her eyes sparkled with life, and her rat-tail wagged side to side with such intensity that her head moved in exactly the opposite direction. She was ready.”

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro.

“We were having this conversation on a fine summer evening, sitting out on the littlebalcony of her recovery room. It was a few months after her first donation, and now she was over the worst of it, I’d always time my evening visits so that we’d be able to spend a half hour or so out there, watching the sun go down over the rooftops.”

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.

Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.

Page 123. From an  everyday perspective, it seems good to do things that are kind of convenient;  there is no problem with that journey – which is to say, when you start to want  to live your life fully instead of opting for death when you begin to feel this  passion for life and for growth, when discovery and exploration and curiosity become your path – then basically, if you follow your heart, you’re going to find that it’s often extremely inconvenient.
Summary from Amazon “It’s possible to say yes to life in all  its manifestations, Pema Chödrön teaches—by embracing all the happiness and  suffering, all the intelligence and confusion that are a natural part of our existence. Doing so opens a wellspring of courage and love within our hearts. In this gift edition of her first book, Pema presents traditional Buddhist  wisdom that anyone can relate to.”

Teaser Tuesday Meme 9/3/13

“She was a real woman: you could tell by the way she didn’t have to move her head from side to side to take in sound. Every day she and the dachshund went for three walks, the first early in the morning, the second in the late afternoon, and the third after dinner, when the blue-green lights of the scows, those slow-moving heralds of melancholy, would begin to appear in the night sky.

Tuesday Teaser

Teaser Tuesdays is weekly bookish meme. I have decided to participate for the same reason I review books and read must read / top X # book lists – exposure to new genres and books.  These books do not have to be just released. In fact in many ways I prefer the older titles.

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Take care not to include spoilers.
  • Share the title and other so that other participants can add to their TBR lists.

In War Times by Kathleen Ann Goonan

“In short, if human consciousness was the time-sensitive entity she believed it was, this device could be called a time machine – although that would be a clumsy, inexact way of describing it. It would meld the latest discoveries in physics with the latest discoveries about biology – a connection that very few scientists, with the exclusion of James Watson, ventured to consider.”
