At the party on Friday, October 8, 2010, some of our mom’s were discussing the books they are reading. So my mom thought it would be nice to start a book club.

We know that when our moms or dads have those book things in their hands they are usually down for a few hours and this is prime lap and snuggle time.

My mom is always looking for good things to read, either at the book store or more often the library.

To support this lets tell each other any good books we have read or are reading. They do not have to be animal related, though that is good too.

Let’s make this an ongoing post.

Read a good book? Just post about it.

Looking for a good book for the weekend? Read over the posts.


happy dance

Mom just finished the Stig Larson series

The girl with the dragon tattoo
The girl who played with fire
The girl who kicked the Hornets nest

Mom could not put them down. She gives them an A+

Great idea Sophie!

Dad just finished reading "The Way Of Kings" by Brandon Sanderson. It was extremely long (over 1000 pages) but incredible. Dad recommends it for anycat who enjoys Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels. It was an epic!

Also, what format do your pawrents read books? Traditional paper books or e-books. Dad has a Barnes and Noble nook and he loves it. He says he would never go back to physical books.

Mom and dad both love to read. Right now mom is reading "The Last Dickens" by Matthew Pearl. It is the third book of his she has read. They are not fast reads, but very interesting. She also is a big fan of Carole Nelson Douglas' Midnight Louie series...featuring feline PI Midnight Louie and his human cohorts. She is also very fond of Shirley Rousseau Murphy's Joe Gray series. Joe Gray and his lady friend, Dulcie, are very special cats. They are throwbacks to an ancient Scottish race that could shapeshift from cat to human. They can no longer shape shift, but they can speak, read, and help solve crimes. Well, that is all for right now. I am sure mom will help me add more books later.

What a cool idea! Mom loves anything by Bertrice Small (Romance) and she also likes Mary Higgins Clark (Mystery). Just don't let young readers read any of Bertrice Small's stuff, she can get a little racy!

Mom likes Mary Higgins Clark, too. She has always loved animal stories and mysteries since she learned to read all those years ago. Her favorite book from when she was a little girl was "Miss
Sniff". It was about a little girl and her black fuzzy cat...Miss Sniff, which was how the little girl siad mischief.

Mom has not converted to e-books yet. I know you can load it with several but there is something about the feel of a book in your hands.

Anyone else converted?

Stinker mom LOVES the Joe Grey series and has read them all.

If you can find it, it is very rare, but I see it on this site, read her first book The Catswold Portal, and it explains the start of these exceptional cats.

Another great series is the Dixie Hemingway mysteries series by
Blaize Clement. It is about a pet sitter who runs into trouble.

Sophie, my mom has read them. She really likes them. Dixie is a great character.
There is a new Joe Gray book coming out in a few days. Mom ordered it today.
We are still ludites when it comes to books, but will probably give in eventuallyto the nook/kindle thing.
Oh, I have a brother named Joe Gray. He is gray and had to have most of his tail amputated. He hasn't spoken to mom yet, but she says she thinks he could if he would deign to speak to a human.
