There are three kinds of people in America today.
The first are those poor folks who have never read friend Brigid's book, The Book of Barkley: Love and Life Through the Eyes of a Labrador Retriever.
Brigid wrote this book after she lost both her beloved Lab Barkley and her only brother, adopted with her from Foster care, and a Navy Veteran in his 50's, to sudden, aggression cancers, within weeks of each other early in 2014. This is their story--one of memory, hope and faith.
The second kind of people are those who have read this book but not yet voted for it to win London's Bookbzz's Prize Writer Competition. Currently this book is just a bit out of first place, and right now it's there because of the third type of people, namely those who have read this book and voted for it to win, as I and others here have done.
Winners in each genre will be televised on National Book Day and receive a cash prize. The link to vote through Google Plus, Facebook or Twitter is below.
If you are one of the second sort, someone who read it but did not vote yet, go there and vote, and vote quickly. If Brigid's book wins, she'll be donating every penny to the disaster response dogs of Search Dog Foundation of California, a worthy cause indeed.
Now if you're one of the first sort--someone who has never read this book--go here, get a copy, read it, and cast a vote for it before Feb 28th. A lot of rescue dogs are counting on you.
