Groucho's Reading Advice





Outside of a dog, a man’s best friend is a book. 

Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read. 

Groucho Marx



Do you agree? :)

What are you reading this weekend? 

Have a good one!

    I've only read one of his books, but it was good. May check that one out. :)

    Alex,
    Jessica's second one is due out shortly, isn't it?

    Sarah,
    I know, it is fun! Haven't read that one yet, but I do enjoy Julie's books.

  7. Karen:
    Just this finished "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder.
    A friend passed a book on to me, "The Thrill of the Hunt", by Tamela Hancock Murray. It's a Christian Romance. It looks like she has written at least three others.

    Blessing on you. Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. I'm reading "Cleopatra's Moon," an outstanding YA novel by Vicky Alvear Shecter, and on my Kindle I've got James Scott Bell's "Plot and Structure." I'd be so lost without my books!

  13. Sally,
    I've not heard of that one. Let me know how you like it, okay?

    Talli,

  18. Amigo, I agree. But instead of a dog for me I'd say horse. :-)

    Though I love my doggies.

    Happy weekend! Hugging you tight.

    I'm reading some picture books.

    ReplyDelete
  19. LOL, I never heard that before! Funny. :)

  20. Robyn,

  21. Funny. :-) A good book does become like a good friend we can't wait to spend more time with.

    I'm reading Truman by David McCullough. I heart biographies.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  24. I love that quote!

    Just finished Deeanne Gist's Love on the Line. Am also reading several nf books, one on my Kindle Ap called I Don't Have Time to Write!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm old enough to remember when Groucho said this, LOL. I'm still reading "One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp, and I've just started reading a free e-book that my friend Renae Brumbaugh is offering on her FB page, "Filling Up My Lap."

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the quote. I am actually re-reading a Richard North Patterson legal thriller because it has been years since I read it and the writer's craft "how to" book I am reading is using the author as an example of a good way to fit in necessary backstory.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hilarious! Between books now!

  28. Terri,
    I've heard good things about Elizabeth's books. I need to add one to my TBR pile!

    Jen,
    I know, me too!I just finished Gist's book too. It was a good read. That Kindle one sounds interesting.

    Jean,
    I think I've heard of that book of Ann's. Let me know how you like it, will you?

    Melissa,
    I do that too - read to check out how the author handles certain things. I've a good handful of books I call both enjoyable reads and teaching tools!

    Nas,
    I know, I really like this quote - it's just fun. :) Thanks for coming by!

    Blessings,
    Karen
