Okay we saw a whole bunch of you doggies doing your favorite books or letting your humans put up their favorite books. Well no one tagged us to do it but since my mom LOVES TO READ I thought I would let her put up her favorite books. Flash and I are not big readers. The top 3 are ones she rereads every year. Oh and she says she isn't going to describe them since most people know about them but if you don't you can click the link and it takes you to a Barnes and noble page about the book. On to mom's list.

1. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
2. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
3. The Stand by Stephen King

The next ones are because she wanted to include some books about animals and these were some of her favorites.
4. All creatures great and small by James Herriot-She remembers Grammie giving her this book when she was younger
5. The Sweet Pickles children series-Mom says she remembers these books from when she was little and one day after having my girl she found some of them in a goodwill so she bought all they had.

So that is mom's list.


  1. Oh your mom is totally a bookworm, eh? Do you like to read Peanut? I would read more if there were more books about meaty bones. Or if books were made of meaty bones.


  2. Hi, Peanut.
    My mom has read the first two books and she liked them a lot!
    I like to chew them not read them!
    Have a good night

  3. We don't read either, Peanut. We're busy trying to hold down the fort around here! Well, plus, we don't know how to read. They wouldn't let us in to school. Just another bias against 4-leggers!

  8. My Mom LOVES the Color Purple and has read it at least 20 times. She's watched the movie 100 times & still cries everytime Nettie comes home from Africa at the end. She knows what's gonna happen!! I don't get it. But she hugs on me when she's sad so it's all good.


  9. Very interesting books!


  10. Hey Peanut. You have a famil that likes to read! Cool. My mom has way too many books. We tagged you. Check it out.

  11. Good book choices! Your mom likes a wide variety, huh? Stephen King is scary stuff!

    Love ya lots,

  12. Peanut,

    Have your mom read that Stephen King book to you at night... in the dark...

    It's good for a few frightened cuddles.

    Goob love,

  13. My mom likes that Gone With the Wind book too. I don't think she's read the others.


  14. Dad likes Stephen King too.


  15. Nice book choices - I'll have to get my human in gear and have her list ours. Nice rememberance of Oscar too - that was very sad news.

    Hope you all have a happy week!

    Love Dory, Mac and Liza

  16. My mom also loves The Stand. Her favorite is Watchers by Dean Koontz. Have you read that?

  17. G'day Peanut,

  19. Peanut! They were great choices for books. My Jeannie just adored Gone With the Wind and she liked all the Creatures Great and Small books - we have visited the town in Yorkshire where they were set.

    Although my Dad says the books are called "All Creatures Grunt and Smell" but he is just being plain silly!!

    I wonder what the Happy Dance looks like!

    I will give it a go anyhow now my Jeannie is feeling a wee bit cheerier!

    love and laughing licks, Marv xxxx
