We are BIG readers in our house, both real and e-books are constantly in use for reference and for entertainment, so we wanted to include a Blog Paws Gift Guide with some of our favourites.
- Eugenie West writes a mean murder mystery, with reporter Gracie Barufaldi using her sharp wits to uncover the truth. First book – Baby’s Breath Kindle also available in paperback.
- Sal Everybody’s Pal we make no excuse for including this delightful, happy and touching book. It tells a great rescue story for children and adults – showing optimism and hope. The drawings are finely done. Hardback/ebook from the site.
- The World According to Bob Excellent review here. The book expands upon the first Street Cat Bob book and shows how the love of a cat turned around a life that was heading downhill fast. New Zealand, UK, USA ebook/real book.
- For Fantasy readers, we are enjoying The Moontide Quartet by David Hair. Mage’s Blood the first of the series sets the scene, introduces a fascinating range of characters into a world with strong resonances of our own and enough strangeness for interest. Russell Meek’s Khalada Stone series is good too.
- The Science of Interstellar. Mind bending as the movie was, it is based on facts, educated guesswork and speculation. Scientist Kip Thorne explains. iBook, Kindle or the highly recommended Real Book.
May we wish you happy hunting in your search for a good book, and hope that we helped a little along the way!
