Dewey

I have been light on the reading lately...it is due to the making of Christmas presents. But I did finish a book for adults...Dewey by Vicki Myron. It is the story of a kitten that is dropped in a book drop in Spencer, Iowa. Dewey ended up living at the Spencer Library for over fifteen years, and it tells about his life. It also tells the story of a relatively small town, and about Vicki, the librarian that became his primary caregiver. The book piqued my interest because it was about a library having a cat, which I had never heard of. If you like libraries, work in a library, or love cats, this is a story worth reading. I am not a cat person, so I was not interested in some of the story details. Anyone else read this? I saw it at Wal-mart and had to wait a couple of weeks to get it because it has a waiting list at the library.

Yes, I am also wondering why it is on the NYT bestseller list. Now, Wesley the Owl is worthy and it isn't getting read. So unfair!
