Let their team do the work for you by checking book blogs, book lists, book sites and more to find you your next favorite read! What are your favorite books? My top 5 favs have to be 1. Memoirs of a Geisha 2. A Thousand Splendid Suns 3. House of Sand & Fog 4. Breathe, Eyes, Memory and 5. Strawberry Girl – an old time favorite. Based on my preferences they searched out this fantastic choice!
The Little Paris Bookshop – by Nina George – This is an international best seller. It is based on a Parisian bookseller Jean Perdu who searches out the perfect book for his customers to help mend a broken heart or whatever he feels will cure them. But, in fact, he is heart broken himself. He is referred to as a “Literary Apothecary” which is someone that prescribes the perfect book to fit one’s mood.
I am so excited to read this book, the Read Dog team actually seems like the ‘Literary Apothecaries’ themselves by choosing the perfect book for my current situation. I could use a good book day, week or month for that matter. What’s your ideal reading experience? I would like to get lost in reading. Brew a cup of tea that makes me close my eyes and say ‘mmmm’ when I take a sip, get my comfy pj’s on with full socks and slippers, and just lay back on my couch corner facing the sunshine. Phone on silent, a cozy blanket nearby. That is exactly what I want right now. I’m kind of excited for winter where I can have the excuse to stay in and read. I always feel like I’m pampering myself when I get a chance to read. I just need to remind myself to take the time, and luckily that’s what Read Dog does. They also sent me some tea to go along with my book, drank one of them while blogging so will have to save the second for actually reading the book! I really like the Good Earth brand, they sent me a Sweetly Twisted black tea and the delicious Sweet & Spicy herbal tea. A cute little sticker, some bubbles as well as a bright blue tote! Perfect for grabbing more books at the library!
