Today we took the car in to be serviced (15,000kms) early (let me not get into the need to replace the front wheel tyres already – it is a performance vehicle not just a car with very low profile tyres and soft compounds etc – and let me not get into how much they cost – over $400 per tyre) and while we waited we wandered. I had a credit at a second hand bookshop so we went in to browse and ended up spending all my credit and then some.
I found a book called “Never Have Your Dog Stuffed” by Alan Alda. I’ve always been a huge fan of his so the book tempted me. After the bookstore we went to a cafe to have cake and coffee. I picked up the book and started reading it. Wow. I am only a few chapters in but I know this is incredible writing already by the story about the dog. One minute you’re wanting to cry and the next minute you’re laughing out loud.
Which is a little strange when you’re sitting in a cafe – The Other Half wondered what was wrong with me.
I think I’m going to enjoy this book. :)

I love laugh out loud books. I’ve never read that particular book, but I understand that in addition to being funny, it’s also very poignant, and that is the best kind of book to read, IMHO.
Oh, please finish that book and post again on it – I’d love to hear if you still love it at the end. Then I’ll know whether to look for it. :)
I’ll have my local libraries track it down for me. I love books that make me laugh out loud.
