On My Wishlist: October 22, 2011: 10/21/11
I finished The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat and Elsie's Bird. Sadly Sarah Court by Craig Davidson has to go back onto the wishlist because I didn't get a chance to read it before it came due at the library.
I also finished the Pirate King by Laurie R. King which I adored. It's by far my favorite of the Holmes and Russell series.
I am still chugging along through The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan and The Mermaid's Mirror by by L. K. Madigan. I've also started reading How to Party with a Killer Vampire by Penny Warner; it's a lot of fun.
I still plan to start Schenectady by Don Rittner — which I've said three weeks in a row now. I also want to start Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand.
My wishlist is at 960 books, up 5 books from last week.
Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):
The Featured Wish for October 22, 2010:
Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend by Susan Orlean
I've watched a bunch of the Rin Tin Tin movies as a kid and I had a collection of Rin Tin Tin inspired books. That alone would make me want to read this book but it's an added bonus that it's written by Susan Orlean.

Great pick! Your featured pick sounds really interesting. I saw on your list of Upcoming Wishlist Reads that you have The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan on there. That book is on my wishlist too, I just forgot to add it to my first On My Wishlist post. :)

I have a copy of Son of Neptune on my TBR right now but I need to clear through a few library books first. Also I want to finish Throne of Fire.

All the books on the list I have. The other 900 or so I still need to find and read.

I've herd great things abut this one and been so tempted...but I'm so afraid that books about animals will be too sad!

Susan Orlean writes with humor. I don't expect the book to be sad.

I'm more of a cat person but I liked the old Rin Tin Tin movies as a kid.

At the rate I'm reading, it will probably be late next year.

I have actually never seen Rin Tin Tin or any of the shows. But I do love a good dog story so I may have to check this out. I've also never read anything by Susan Orlean that I know of so it would be great to find a new author.
Thank you for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

I used to watch them on cable at my grandmother's house. Susan Orlean wrote The Orchid Thief was the inspiration behind the movie, The Adaptation.
