The Daily Coyote by Shreve Stockton

5 stars

This is an absolutely enchanting story of a woman who falls in love with a state... and ends up raising a coyote.

Random, yes.

But it is a wonderful story and I really enjoyed it.

My only complaint-- I wanted more pictures!! This whole idea started as a daily email she sent out with a picture of Charlie, and yet I didn't think there were nearly enough pictures in the book!

You can see lots of pictures, though, at the Daily Coyote blog. Charlie's so cute!

What I found amazing-- Shreve Stockton actually finally had to REMOVE the comment section on the blog because people were being rude, judgemental and FIGHTING! Is that not ridiculous? The idea that people found something to be mean about looking at these adorable pictures is beyond me! The internet seriously makes people go crazy. (Random tidbit, Blogger's spellcheck doesn't like the word "internet" or "Blogger's". There's a certain irony there.)

Anyway, I usually have a harder time getting through the nonfiction Reader's Choice books... and sometimes I skip them entirely. This was a great read, though, and it went really fast.


  1. Thanks for the link to the website, Britt! Gorgeous pix, and what an interesting site. Too darn bad about the comments, though. People sure can be idiots.

  2. I agree, people are absolutely idiots. And the anonymity of the internet makes it so much worse!!

    The pictures she posts are fabulous though!!
