Dog Books Galore
What’s worth reading?

As was noted in Sunday’s Denver Post article, dog books are being published in record numbers. The success of more recent books like Marley and Me (2005), along with worthy “classics” like Elizabeth Marshall Thomas’ Hidden Life of Dogs (on the bestseller list for 28 weeks in ’95), convinced publishers there certainly is a great interest in this genre. People love their dogs and love reading about them.

 
Bark receives, on average, 8 to 12 new books a week, most of them heartfelt, a few opportunistic, and a scant few really good. But this year was a stellar one for canine-centric titles. Here’s our top 10 list for 2010 (plus four noteworthy memoirs).
 
Do you have a favorite book from 2010 you want to share with us?
