Well-Read Sibes

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  As many of you may already be aware, Siberians have quite the reputation for simply devouring good books!  (Click here.)  We just can't get enough of them!  The three of us are no exception; we just love a good read!

Here's a great one Mom and I are reading together:

A Way Out
by Billy Wagner, with Patty Rasmussen

It's a wonderful story of how major league pitcher Billy Wagner's faith in God helped him overcome tremendous challenges, both on and off the field. It's so well-written and inspirational!  We highly recommend it!

Knowing what good readers we are, our blogging buddy Honey the Great Dane, asked us a while back to read the book she helped write - Curse of the Scarab – Big Honey Dog Mystery #1. I mean, I'm sure she helped her person write it; at the very least, she was the inspiration! Zim and I downloaded it to the Kindle app on our iPad and set about reading it.

"You can read it with us, Mom!"
"I get to turn the pages, though."

We let Mom read it, too. It only seemed fair.  I'm very good at turning pages with my snooter.

Curse of the Scarab was a fun, fast read!  It was action-packed, suspenseful, and held our interest (not always easy with Siberians).  There were lots of interesting characters - even a Siberian!

"Oooh!  Suka the Siberian solved part of the mystery!"

I loved when all the dogs in the book worked together!

Zim and I thought this book was great!  Many thanks to Honey for the good read - and we wish you and your biped the best as the book hits the market!

"Case solved!  Way to go, Honey!"

SPOILER ALERT!!!  Skip the next paragraph to avoid reading a partial spoiler for the book.  Sorry.

When little Maggie joined the family, she wanted to read it, too.  Zim and I thought long and hard about this and decided this book, though delightful, isn't suitable for puppies 12 months of age and younger.  The dogs in the book do a lot of sneaking out of the house and running around without leashes, and we don't want Maggie to get any crazy ideas!   Also, sadly, one of the main characters doesn't make it.  Actually, we should amend our audience to "not suitable for puppies 12 months of age and younger -- or bipeds who cry through Bambi and Charlotte's Web".  (No offense, Mom.)  No offense meant to Honey and her biped, either - we just are very protective of our pack.


Having said that, Maggie wanted to do some reading, so Zim and I browsed through Mom's Kindle app and gave her some suggestions of puppy-safe books.  Here's the one Maggie chose:

"Always Right!?!?!  I like this one!"

It seemed perfect for her!

"I this book!"

If you're looking for a good book to sink your teeth into (not literally ... we don't do that any more, right Zim and Mags?), we highly recommend A Way Out, Curse of the Scarab (for puppies over 12 months old), and Margaret Thatcher recommends reading Always Right.  Hmm.  I hope she doesn't think this means she's always right!  Ha roowooroo!

Read a good book!

    I need to read Hsin-Yi's book, too!!I started reading her blog way back in 2009, before I was on Facebook. I can't remember how I stumbled upon it! LOL

  2. You Sibes are so smart to read such good books! We fall asleep when Mommy reads a book with us. Our mommy cries at Bambi, Charlotte's Web and even Budweiser Clydesdale commercials so she can't read that book. She's weird.

  3. We loved Honey's book! Mom will have to check out the other ones.

  4. good suggestions. but we bet the books on the iPad are a little harder to "devour" MOL

  5. Happy Howl-a-ween all and we will check those out. Stay in, stay safe and don't get spooked
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Thanks for sharing! It's always good to get new inspiration.
