  1. I am intrigued by Dogtripping even though I am not an animal person. It sounds like it will be a fun listen. Enjoy!

  2. I had no idea there were so many Emily books! I have a friend who does Dog Rescues and drives all over to pick up dogs. I’ll have to tell her about Dogtripping!

  3. I love all the L.M. Montgomery books on your list! She’s one of my all-time favorite authors. Enjoy your time with her!

    • Do you do Facebook groups? I’m in one that’s reading through LMM’s books in 2018. I can send you the link if you’re interested in joining it!
