Can’t Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read.
In keeping with the Dog Days of Summer Reading Challenge, I chose a book that is of course dog related. Don’t know what the Dog Days of Summer Reading Challenge is? Click HERE to find out and join in the fun.
Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Dave Barry turns to his best dog, Lucy, to learn how to live his best life. From “Make New Friends” (an unfortunate fail when he can’t overcome his dislike for mankind) to “Don’t Stop Having Fun” (validating his longtime membership in a marching unit that performs in parades—and even Obama’s inauguration), Dave navigates his later years with good humor and grace. Lucy teaches Dave how to live in the present, how to let go of daily grievances, and how to feel good in your own skin. The lessons are drawn from Dave’s routine humiliations and stream-of-consciousness accounts of the absurdities of daily life, which will leave you heaving with laughter and recognition.
