I love a pig...

but I give up!  I am not going to finish this book!  I originally picked this book up in September as a good read for the beach, but it is not what I imagined it would be!  Now, you may wonder why I ever picked a book titled the good good pig?  Honestly, I love pigs!  I think they are cute, innocent and simply adorable - and I am not referring to Wilbur from Charlotte's Web.  I am a fan of the 750lbs of pork type of pig!  I first fell in love with these sloppy pets in college when I would go with my then boyfriend to help him work on his aunts farm.  They had two precious pigs that I loved visiting with and petting!  I have since decided that when I have a farm one day that I must have a pig named Cecil!  So, I thought the pig book (this is how Wayne refers to my latest pick) would be perfect, but it turns out that this National Bestseller is much more about the authors adventures than the pigs.  Sadness!  Don't get me wrong, the author is a very interesting and adventurous animal lover - she travels the world learning about different types of animals' without fear (think of a female Steve Irwin)!  But, hello, I wanted to read about a good good PIG!  Nevertheless, I must continue with tradition and pass on this book to someone who I believe will appreciate it!  So, I am passing the good good pig to my well-read MIL, Dean, who will finish the 225 pages in a matter of minutes.  Maybe I can get her to just tell me about the parts about the pig! :)
