Here are my Friday Finds!

The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

I found this book at The Bluestocking Society.

From the review:
“Enzo is a dog who believes – from watching a documentary – that in his next life he will be a human man. While limited as a dog (he has no thumbs!), he’s trying to learn as many human attributes as he can by paying attention to the humans around him. Enzo was purchased as a puppy by Dennis Swift. Denny is a semi-pro race car driver whose life has took some tragic turns. As Enzo looks back over his life, he retells his and Denny’s story with great insight and compassion.

Blindness by Jose Saramago

I found this book through Books I Done Read.

From the review:
“Except in the book Blindness, where blindness is permanent white. And where EVERYone is blind. And where there is no one to guide you back to your house if you get lost while you’re getting used to being blind. And where there is no one to bring you food, or to keep the electricity and water running, because sooner or later, everyone is blind (except for this one lady, but things are awkward for her, let me tell you).”

Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion

I found out about this from the bookreporter newsletter.

A pampered Long Island princess hits the road in a converted bus with her wilderness-loving husband, travels the country for one year, and brings it all hilariously to life in this offbeat and romantic memoir.
