Hi Irene,
I gave copies of your book out at Christmas to friends/family that I knew would enjoy your book, because of their love for and about animals. Although I have yet to read this book myself....I just know it is a great read! My question and I apologize if this is addressed in the book, yet after Alex did you get another type of bird for a "pet" or did you get a four legged "pet"? If you did get another pet, are you using the findings that you uncovered with Alex in your new relationship? How so?
Thanks so much for writing your book and I am looking forward to your interview!!!
All the best to you,

I'll be there! I can't wait to hear more about Alex.

Thanks so much!

Julie P.

Ooops! I forgot a question.

How did Alex most touch your life?
What is your fondest memory of Alex?
Were you surprised at the response to Alex's death?


Wow, i'd love to have this if I'm not to late, thank you.


Forgot my questions too. How did Alex die? Wasn't he young for his species? Can anything you learned from working with him be used in future, or is it now?


Even if it is too late I thought I would still ask a question of the author.

What was your most lasting memory of Alex? Would you get another bird again? Or no animal at all? Or one of the four legged animal and why?


This is such a great site! I'm going to link to my own blog (in case someone wants to read someone with talent haha) - and I'd love the chance to talk with you sometime about your success! Thanks so much!



One more thing - I tagged and awarded you on my blog! Prob. not your thing, but if you're interested - check out my blog: Thank you!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
