A Book Tag

Blue tagged us to list our five favorite books! This is a really hard one because there are so many good ones that we love!

One of our very favorites is probably one that most of you haven't seen unless you're an Airedale. It's called "To Aire Is Divine" and it's real-life hysterically funny stories from the members of an online Airedale email group called Airedale-L. Anytime mom needs a belly laugh - this is the book she'll choose to read! She says it reminds her SOOOOOOOO much of us and all of our delightful daily antics!
This next book is becoming one of Mitch's favorites. The book is called, "Wake up, Mr. B.!" by Penny Dale. It's another Airedale story that's mostly pictures! The illustrations are just precious and mom pulls this one off the bookshelf everytime the quilting bee decides to do another quilt. I can't tell you how many times we've looked at this book!

One of mom's very favorites is "The Thorn Birds" by Colleen McCullough. She reads this book every year when she's sitting under the beach umbrella on Nantucket listening to that wonderful surf and the squeals of children building their sand castles. The movie is good but the book is better in mom's opinion!

Another one that we all love is "Stuart Little" - by E.B.White. What a wonderful creation this is and the movies are just adorable too!

Another book that's on our favorite's list is "The Christmas Box" - by Richard Paul Evans. If you've never read this book it's a "must read". It will only take you a couple of hours and you'll feel soooo wonderful afterwards!

These are our five book choices and I can tell you that it wasn't easy! We could go on and on and on with our favorite book list! So now we'll choose Putter, Ruby, Nanook and Pooka, Wally and Asta. Put your thinking caps on and tell us your 5 favorite books!

Until next time............

  21. Hey, Maggie!

    I should have known you were an avid reader. Yea, my girl has a few books she reads every year too. I am a collector of books, myself. They usually smell yummy (the older the better I say), and each has its own individual taste.

    Goober love & kisses (Goober hugs for Mitch),

  22. Oh Mitchie, You look so handsome in your new jacket. One of my dads has a moto-cycle thingy and I don't get a ride either :( Boo Hoo
