Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Dog On It by Spencer Quinn

I just finished reading Spencer Quinn'sDog on It  and I can't say how much I loved the book. It is not a deep book but It was a book that simply made me smile and laugh asI read it. Chet (dog) and Bernie are great characters. Chet being the narrator of the book giving a dogs pespective of the world. I am not a dog person but could relate in saying that is what I is really going on inside a dogs head. What's that oh yea it me laughing again. Read the book and You will know what I mean by this!

Re: Dog On It by Spencer Quinn

I am about half way through Dog On It and read most of that on Sunday afternoon.  It is so much fun to experience the story through Chet's senses and thoughts.  I am also a fan of the Sneaky Pie Brown mysteries by Rita Mae Brown and the Bull Moose Dog Run series by JF Englert. 

 

Yes, that was you laughing Biljounce63....LOL!

Re: Dog On It by Spencer Quinn

tabcat,

Glad you are enjoying the book. My copy is now with a coworker who wanted to read it after I kept talking about it. I can simply say that I found the book refreshing to say the least. I read the book in three sittings that is fast for me. I can't wait for the next one in the series It will be a while though since this one was just published last month.

Your right it was me laughing!
