Internet Inspired Reading

Every time I have opened my web browser today and seen this:

All I can think about is this:

This is another one of the many books of my TBR pile, a pile that grew significantly today after I made a trip to the local Borders where everything is priced to sell (nothing over $1.99). So, because I have not yet read this book, I will let Amazon.com tell you about it. From their website:

Laika by Nick Abadzis

Laika was the abandoned puppy destined to become Earth’s first space traveler. This is her journey.

Nick Abadzis masterfully blends fiction and fact in the intertwined stories of three compelling lives. Along with Laika, there is Korolev, once a political prisoner, now a driven engineer at the top of the Soviet space program, and Yelena, the lab technician responsible for Laika’s health and life. This intense triangle is rendered with the pitch-perfect emotionality of classics like Because of Winn DixieShiloh, and Old Yeller. Abadzis gives life to a pivotal moment in modern history, casting light on the hidden moments of deep humanity behind history. Laika’s story will speak straight to your heart.
