A Good Book

Hello. We hope you all have had a good week.  It's been a little crazy here, but I manage.  I nap and eat and nap and then play a little in the evening.
Have you heard of this book?  It's called "Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World." It's about a kitten who was shoved into the after-hours book-return slot at the public library in Spencer, Iowa on a very cold winter night in 1988.  He was found the next morning by Myron, the author and library director.  Dewy won her heart and the hearts of the library staff by limping on frostbitten paws to give each of them a gesture of thanks and love.  The book tells of the impact the cat had on the library and its patrons, and on Myron herself. It's a heartwarming story, and we would like to send it to someone.  If you're interested, please let us know in your comment.  If there are multiple requests, we will randomly select one person.  Also, it's fine if you're outside of the US.

We hope you're having some fun this weekend!


  1. We've seen the book, won't enter the "draw" for it. Looks good though!

    The mom has been spending the day shoveling snow, snow, and more snow. What fun! (Not.)

    Have a great evening and Sunday!

  2. I've read this book and it is a good one.

  3. I have the book but haven't read it yet. I have to climb over many boxes to get to my books bcause of storing everythin in the living room while tearing up our kitchen. I heard the book is really good.
    We miss you posting but we sure understand. We aren't on as much as we used to be. When there's babysitting there's not a minute to be on the computer.
    Purrs and snuggles to Lucy and Simba.

  4. Lucy, you are very kind ! and so happy you have a really good time : )

    My mom didn't have this book but she got the second book of Dewey. Lot of people said the first one is much more better ! Mom will be glad if you don't mind to send it to her : )

    I'm sure whoever receives the book will enjoy it as well.

  9. I would be interested by this book! I won't find it here in France! The story seems so lovely! And when I see Lucy reading it, i think that Jim would like to read it too! (Chestnut is too young, does not know how to read yet! :)
