I Read a Book Today That You Might Know!

I read quite a bit, but the books I do often read are not usually "book club" material, nor are they often books many of you probably have heard of. They're titles like, "The Daring Dutchess" or "Love's Sweet Majesty", etc. etc. (i.e. historical romances). You know, the literary greats. (cough cough) But today folks, I read a book some of you may know!

I read The Cat Who Could Read Backwards by Lillian Jackson Braun.

You see, DH has a somewhat lengthy commute to work and often I find audio books through the library for him to listen to. I had chosen one of "The Cat Who..." books for him to listen to, and he enjoyed it, but it was like book number 27 or something and he said he'd like to start from the beginning. So now he's up to book #3 in the car, and I caught parts of book #2 during our 50 trips to the fair last week and decided I'd like to try reading one of "The Cat Who..." books the old fashioned way, so I requested #1 from the library. Today was a day of no plans (THANK GOODNESS!!!!!) and so I staked out a spot on the couch (we do not have modern furniture, but it's comfy at least) and read the book today.

I loved it!

When I'm done posting I'm going to the library website to request #2 in paperback form for me.

What, only like 28 more books to go to catch up to her latest book?

Yay! :-)

  1. I really like the idea of the audio books. I have a long commute once or so a week - 2 hours each way, and audio books are a great idea!

    I love reading, I have books strewn all over the house. LOL :)

    Hope the series is good!

  3. Great idea! I used to rent out audio books from the library quite a bit, we have a 5 hour one way car journey to visit my family and they sure make the journey go quicker. I think their great for keeping alert on the road as well.

    Thanks for advertising on my blog today!

I read each and every comment, and though I don't always get a chance to respond, I enjoy reading (and pondering) what you have to say. Thanks for your 2 cents! :-)
