Em from the Shelf Aware podcast is back to help launch the 2023 All The Good Dogs Reading Challenge by tackling our first book of the year and its movie counterpart – A Dog’s Way Home

Did we take on too much watching a movie AND reading a book? Or are we just filled with a lot of opinions?

Its our birthday (almost) and Anna from the Shelf Aware Podcast is here to celebrate with our yearly tradition – book club!

Tomorrow by Damian Dibben is a charming dog POV novel that took us to places we weren’t expecting. From the genre, to the characters, we dive in deep to what we loved about this romp through history and what just didn’t hit the mark.

Episode 105: Steven Rowley, Lily and Tilda


Author Steven Rowley joins the show this week to talk about his best selling novel, Lily and the Octopus, his latest novel The Editor, but mostly importantly, DOGS. 

We talk about how Steven’s debut novel, dedicated to his life with his beloved dog Lily, became a huge success and is now being made into a feature film. We also discuss the adventures in the book and how difficult the sadder moments were to write.

Not forgetting the new love of Steven’s life, Tilda, his rescue terrier, who often wonders when she’ll get a book of her own.

Episode 102: Arty and Book Club


Its the third anniversary and Anna from Shelf Aware joins the show to talk about her very good boy Arty and also a book!

We are dissecting A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World by C.A. Fletcher and spoilers are abound. If you don’t want to know what happens in this one before you read it (and we strongly recommend you don’t) Go! Read it before you tune in!

But if you do, you will be delighted to to hear our uneducated theories on electricity and technology, weird doggy match-making, and whether we would be hoarders or preservers for the future.
