Conundrum

Boy we have a pickle on our hands friends! A real head-scratcher. I got three books at the library this morning (when I went in intending to walk out with ONE), and now I can't make the difficult decision of which to start first. You know how it is - you bring home this enticing pile of library books, with their shiny book jackets, and they all look so good, it's impossible to decide which one to delve into first.

These are my options:

A) The Little Giant of Aberdeen County - exuberantly recommended by HistoryGirlie (I believe the conversation went something like, ooooo, oooooh, read it, READ IT!).

B) One Nation Under Dog - a memoir/humorous look at our country's newest obsession with our dogs. Facials, Prozac for puppies, etc. I snabbed it off of the new book shelf and it looks like it could be devoured in one night.

C) The Woman in White - the book club selection for a group I might be joining. The first meeting is at the start of October, so I should begin this one... however, it's a detective story from 1860, and it's pretty thick, so I'm wary.

I'm leaning in one direction, but I'll give you all a chance to vote. Leave your pick (and well-reasoned arguments ;) in the comments by noon Thursday!

Lucy votes for One Nation Under Dog (obviously). She is such a prototype for that book, sadly.

One Nation Under Dog sounds hilarious! I'm going to put that one on my list.

So devour the dog book over the weekend, and then a couple chapters of the book club one. If, or when, that one gets wonky, switch to the other one. Come on, you've "multi-booked" before. You can do it!

I'd start with the book club one. It has a due date, and if it's a rough one, it may take a while.

The Little Giant will always be there and will always be good.

And I agree with the others. Pound out the Dog book and then start in on others.
