When Pigs Read

Our family has increased with a couple of furry additions.  Luckily they're huge readers so they fit right in.

This is Little Bear.  She likes to start the day off with some Kale and the Wall Street Journal

Here is a piggie after my own heart.  She loves Dostoevsky, although she was saddened at how "The Idiot" ended.  When asked her name she informed us that she was called "Zorgon the Destroyer".  However, we prefer to call her Princess Priscilla Piggybottom.

Is it a bookshelf?

Of course not!  It's home to a pair of book loving piggies.

Both Little Bear and Princess Piggybottom enjoy Celtic Art

Little Bear was simply shocked at the language and subject matter of  D. H. Lawrence's Lady Chatterly's Lover.  She found it so upsetting we had to quit reading half way through the novel.
She let her opinion be known in no uncertain terms.

These are our Hermit Crabs, Hermie and Kermie.  They're not much readers.

And that's enough silliness for one week.  I promise to post a book review next time.  (Princess Priscilla Piggybottom wants to impart her insight on "The Idiot." Stay tuned...)


  1. Such cute additions to your reading troupe! They make me want to go out and add to my pet menagerie of two. Happy reading to all! :-)

    1. Hi Cleopatra! We are actually considering getting a third pig. Josh will have to add a wing to their pen first.

  2. Cute, cute, cute! Love the post! I'm so glad you adopted some friends that are readers! I know you are looking forward to long summer days of reading!

    1. HI Joy! I just now saw your comment. For some reason it got stuck in the moderation department. I am looking forward to summer reading. I hope that you all are pumped about Revelation. I think you just returned from San Antonio? I can't wait to start!

  3. They are so cute Sharon. I love animals and those creatures look extremely lovable.

    I eagerly await Princess Piggybottom's next review.

    1. Hi Brian. Her review is coming up in the next post.


I welcome comments from anyone with a mutual interest in the subjects I written about.
