Marley and Me

KP wanted to join a book club, but didn’t know of one. I knew of one and called my friend who hosts it. She was excited to hear about a possible visitor. And she sent me the book they’re reading for this year’s first meeting so I can pass it on. It’s Marley and Me by John Grogan.

It’s the perfect book for a dog lover, which my friend is. It made me smile and laugh and cry.

It chronicles thirteen years in the life of a family, a married couple who get a dog, lose a baby, have a baby, have a baby, have a baby, move, … The dog is clearly a part of the family and beloved.

I’m glad KP wanted to be in a book club and that D thought to lend her the book through me. It was a good read.
