Hi again! First, I'd like to remind you about the book giveaway at my blog, SKJAM! Reviews which runs until 9/30/13.

This time, we look at books Goodreads is suggesting to me based on my Animals shelf, where I put books that either have animals as main characters or are heavily focused on animals. For example, a normal Western wouldn't count, but one about a cattle drive, or focusing on a cowboy's relationship with his horse would.

As you might expect, there's considerable overlap with the children's shelf.

As always, please feel free to comment if you've read any of these books or heard interesting buzz about them.
