Here at Casa Feathers n Beak, reading is a flock-wide tradition.
While some of us like to focus on the words on the page, while others of us prefer to focus on the crispiness of those pages, it is safe to say no book entering this household lacks for attention.
So Pearl thought it would be a great idea to combine his literary knowledge with his mommy’s typing skills to share more about books we both love – just in time for your weekend reading list!
This week, the book is “On Living” by Kerry Egan.
Pearl’s review: Finally, a book with proper cover art. While there are no feathered beings pictured, it is easy to “read between the lines” and visualize them with such a green, leafy background. Of course, the subject matter isn’t as feather-focused as one might prefer, unlike the topic of this great book!
His mommy’s review: This is such a fabulous book – it is the kind of book that makes me wish I had just bought it instead of checking it out of the library because I WANT to pay the author for her wonderful contribution to my quality of life. The author, Chaplain Kerry Egan, works in hospice, which means she spends her days with people who are near their end of theirs. The stories they have shared with her – well, I feel reconnected to my own kind after reading them (where mostly I often want to change species). This is a book I will keep with me for life (especially now that my mom gifted me with my own permanent copy!).
With love (& feathers),
Shannon & Pearl
