Read A Book Day with Hugs & Kisses

Bentley: “Guess what we are celebrating today?”
Pierre: “It has got to be my birthday this time!  Where are my presents?  Did Gramma bake me a birthday cake?  I am so hyped!”
Bentley: “Pierre, every single time I tell you that we are celebrating, you assume that it is your birthday.  If that was the case, you’d be about 87 years old by now.”
Pierre: “What are you trying to say?  Is it not my birthday?  Shoot, I wanted cake.”
Bentley: “Yes, it is not your birthday.  It is National Read a Book Day!  You know what that means don’t you?”
Pierre: “We need to read a book today!  I love reading, especially The Returns 2 ~ Showstoppers.  That is my gorgeous face on the cover.  The character, Pierre Sinclair, is loosely based on me.  He was a famous fashion designer, and computer guru that dabbled in gourmet cooking prior to his premature death.  Luckily, he was returned in the body of a spectacular Westie to fulfill his destiny.  Do we get to celebrate Read a Book Day with cake?”
Bentley: “I am not sure about the cake, but the second book in The Returns series is really funny.  Of course, we want our readers to start with the first book.  The Returns has my handsome mug on the cover.  F.B.I. Agent #7 Bentley Clanton is killed in an illegal arms deal takedown.  He is very surprised to find out he is not supposed to be in Heaven yet.  He meets his rookie Guardian Angel and the next thing he knows he has four ginormous feet paws, long ears, and a tail.  It’s hilarious and Mom doesn’t have a single bad word in the either book.”
Pierre: “I want all of our friends to read the first one really fast so they can read about the dognappers and the dog show experience.  It cracks me up every time I read it.  Did you know that if they have Amazon Kindle Prime or Kindle Unlimited, they could read our books free?  Even if they don’t, it only costs $2.99.  You can’t even buy a hamburger for that price and our books are a whole lot meatier.”
Bentley: “Meatier and not a single calorie in the entire series!  It is absolutely the best deal in the entire universe…probably.  Our friends can read the first three chapters by clicking the “Look Inside” tag on our Amazon page.  I sure hope that y’all take advantage of Read a Book Day to check out Mom’s books.  You can read it on your computer, cell phone, or IPad with a free Amazon app.
Pierre: “Hey Bentley!  Guess what else today is and no, it’s still not my birthday.  I’ll give you a hint.  It is something Gramma is always doing to us.”
Bentley: “Is it National Belly Rubbing Day?  Woo Hoo!  Belly-up dude!”
Pierre: “No, our friends Lily and Edward from Two French Bulldogs are celebrating their 2nd Annual Hugs & Kisses Day in honor of their friend Benny.  He is an angel now but loved hugs and kisses.  We are supposed to post a hugging and kissing photo.  Isn’t that the sweetest thing in the world?”
Bentley: “That is a great way to honor the loving memory of a friend.  I’m proud to be a part of it.  Wait a second…do you smell that?”
Pierre: *sniff, sniff  “Gramma baked a cake!  Happy Read a Book and Hugs & Kisses Day y’all!  Let’s eat cake!”

  9. It's going to rain later today, so this seems like the perfect time for Read a Book day. The Returns sounds great, as well as some cake to go with it! I just need to get my chores done, and then maybe it will be cake and The Returns this afternoon....along with a cup of coffee it sounds like the perfect Saturday afternoon! :)
