Book of the Month-Read"A Dogs Purpose", Hike St Edwards St Park, Coffee @ Tullys

You do not need to read the book to attend the hike portion of this meet up.

Who likes to read and then discuss the book?  How about having a book of the month selection that the group can read and then on a designated walk/hike have coffee, drink or lunch/dinner afterwards to discuss?  I will select books (either non fiction or novels) with a walking/hiking/dog/fitness theme and post the first of the month.  Read the book during the month and then later in the month we can get together to discuss. Suggestions for books you have read or are wanting to read are welcome.

This month let's read "A Dog's Purpose" by W. Bruce Cameron

For some reason I am unable to copy past the information to this section so please see the comment section for details.

 

We will do an easy hike at St Edward State Park (you do need a discover pass-if this is an issue we can probably arrange a carpool from a nearby parking area) and then go to Tully's for coffee and discussion.

    Great walk with the dogs and I enjoyed chatting about the book with all of you afterward. Vanessa- the book I was referring to was "Nop's Trials " about sheepdog herding. I must have given my copy away.

    Yeah, we got the hike in before it started to rain. Thanks for coming out for the hike today even if you didn't stay for the book discussion. Everyone who read the book seemed to enjoy it so you might want to read it if you haven't.
    Enjoy the rain for the rest of the weekend. See you all soon.

    Didn't attend book reading (just hike) but Meetup app required me to rate it so I gave it 5 stars as I'm sure it was great!

    Hi,

    I would love to go to this but I'll be in Ocean Park, WA. visiting my Mom. Hope to enjoy this group with my 14 year old border terrier when we get back. Shway

    This novel, told from a dog’s perspective, has the highest reader-ranking of any recent New York Times Bestseller.
    Probably what makes this story so beloved and unique is that it is told from the perspective of a real dog — that is, not a dog who understands English or talks to other dogs or animals. Often, this results in hilarious misunderstandings — just as in real life.
    Also: it is not a story where at the end of the book the dog dies. That’s not a spoiler alert because the entire premise of the novel is that the dog never dies—he keeps being reborn, remembering each life, learning lessons from each life that help him with the next one. Eventually, he comes to conclude there must be a purpose, a reason for him to be reborn, and until he has figured out that purpose, he’ll keep being reborn, over and over again.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
