New review on Brain Burps: Stay: The True Story of Ten Dogs

Today on Brain Burps I review Stay: The True Story of Ten Dogs. This is one of those books that I grabbed without reading it first, because Ramona insists that a certain percentage of our library haul is made up of dog books. We were all completely charmed by this story, and every photo is cuter than the last. The story is such a powerful (and sweet) one, about second chances, patience, and perseverance.

You want to see Luciano Anastasini and his circus dogs? We did too! Here’s a video of their act.

I also have to say that books like Stay and stories like the one in today’s New York Times about the woman in North Carolina who has hundreds of cats do nothing for my repressed desire to have three dogs, nine cats, a goat and some chickens.

Katie interviews Eric VanRaepenbusch today (of the Happy Birthday Author blog) about how he used social media to drive tons of traffic to the site for his Three Ghost Friends books.
