    Try This For Some Different Reading

    To maintain our sanity, I think it's important to just sit down and read a "feel good" book every now and then, and forget all the craziness in the world.

    Such a book is Dewey. The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, by Vicki Myron.

    Dewey was the cat-in-residence at the Spencer, Iowa, public library for 19 years, after being abandoned in the library's book drop as an 8 week old kitten.

    If you're not a feline fancier, this book probably won't appeal to you, but for those that are, I think you'll enjoy it.



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    "Dewey And Me" Sounds like the feline version of Marley And Me. There are 100's of these books on the shelves of book stores today.

    And your point is?

    The book's title is not "Dewey And Me."

    For sure. I put this book on my "to read" list after checking it out at Amazon. Of course I'm a cat lover and the book looks to be enjoyable reading for me.

    Looks good

    After reviewing the book on Amazon as well, I think I'll pick it up. It looks good. I originally thought it was another "Marley And Me" spin off!!!

    Sorry Cap-it looks good

    Somewhat related - if you like dogs you might try "A Dog About Town" or "A Dog Among Diplomats". Thanks for the info Captain -

    If you want an interesting and sometimes funny read try "Wesley the Owl: The Remarkable Love Story of an Owl and His Girl". It's on Amazon.

    I read a review, and since my wife has always liked owls so I got it for her, and ended up reading it myself. Learned some stuff, had a few good laughs, and overall enjoyed the book.
