Harper is almost four months old and lucky us, goes to sleep around the same time every night. That means I can then cozy into my own bed and read before I got to sleep. JOY!
For Christmas (or birthday?) I got the book Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend by Susan Orlean and couldn't wait to read it. I had heard of the dog, but didn't know much and was amazed to find out what a gigantic star he was in the 20's. HUGE. Silent films often had animals as leading characters which makes sense as you could put any thoughts into their heads on screen.
Rinty was apparently a phenomenal actor though many of his films were lost due to neglect and decay. The story of Rinty, his offspring/legacy and his master is a good one, I only wish there were more photos!
I have now moved on to reading The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. It was a surprise gift from my mom and it's pretty fascinating so far!
There are many more books stacked on my bedside table just waiting. Big thanks to Harper for being a good sleeper so that Momma can get some reading done!
