It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?


I am currently reading, Peaches & Paprika, Calico Cats of Distinction: Our First Year in Connecticut by Carol Lowbeer. I am a fan of their blog and even had the pleasure of meeting them in the fur once.

*Disclaimer: I received a free Kindle copy of the book. All opinions are my own. 

If you love cats and a happy ending then this is the book for you. I LOVE all the photos showing the unique personality of Peaches and Paprika, all taken by their mom who is a professional photographer. Before being adopted, they were on a shelter kill list, meaning their time had run out. I am so glad these two sweeties got rescued. I wish all kitties could be so lucky. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free. Otherwise, it is a reasonable $4.99. Click here.


And for my awww …photo. I thought I would mix it up and show my niece’s dog, Nora.


Before we go , we want to give our condolences to sweet Harvey’s family. To visit them, click here. 



  1. Lovely Nora 😻
    I’m sorry Harvey crossed the rainbowbridge, My thoughts are with his family 🕯🌈

  2. My thoughts go to Harvey’s family.
    I have the Kindle version of Peaches and Paprika’s book too and it is lovely with lots of beautiful photos.
    Nora looks very sweet.

  3. Dad loves cats, of course, but he’s not exactly a fan of happy endings. He prefers horror/thrillers with waaaay to much graphic stuff and disturbing endings. But anyway, glad you’re doing some nice quality reading. We’ve been a little absent but I made dad log on and get his butt moving around to catch up with our fellow bloggers. Baby steps, I guess.

  4. Have read nothing but wonderful reviews for Peaches and Paprika’s new book. That photo of Nora is adorable…..she’s smiling!

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  5. I always love happy ending 🙂 I’m so glad Peaches and Paprika are rescued from kill list and now happy kitties in their forever home!

  6. Nora is so cute. The books sounds glad the cats were rescued.

  7. Going to check out Peaches and Paprika! I am reading Under the Tuscan Sun by Frances Mayes for maybe the hundred and eleventh time! It makes me happy to read it! Nora is a cutie! Good Morning!

  14. I’m sneaking onto mom’s amazon account and getting this book today!

  15. Oh, I’m so sorry about Harvey. 🙁 This book sounds like a fun and uplifting use of time. Thanks for sharing. And Nora looks a lot like my Aunt’s dog Candy in my youth. She was related to our part beagle Tina, a real sweetie herself. Be well, my dear.

  16. Mom has the prequel to The Hunger Games on reserve from the library – she is excited to get it because she loved that series.

    Have a good week.

    Woos, Lightning and Timber

    1. Is your library open? Ours is still closed. 🙁 I hope you have a nice week too.

  17. I’m a fan of Peaches And Paprika’s blog too but sadly I stopped getting their posts a long time ago. Too bad they are great cats and their owner is nice too.
    I’m reading Book 4 of The Hillcrest Witch Cozy Mystery Series. The book is called: The Case of the Trust Spell by Amorette Anderson. You will love it.

  18. I’m pooped from all the cat content reading I did judging for the CWA so I’m reading anything without cats 🙂

  19. They’re both very cute, so glad they found a furrever home. It sure must be a great read, Ellen. We’re a little in shock as we just read here that Harvey is in heaven now :'( 😺Pawkisses for a Happy Monday to all of you🐾😽💞

  20. Nora is adorable!!

    Sad about sweet little Harvey. I just finished a card/memento for him and am about to send it.

  27. Ellen,

    Thanks for the book review. It would pawsome if all kitties and pups found a forever home. I’m sorry to read the sad news about Harvey crossing the rainbow bridge. I know his family is heartbroken. Saying prayers for God’s comfort to touch them. Have a good week, my furriend!

  28. Our purrs and prayers are with sweet Harvey’s family.

    Peaches and Paprika’s book sounds like such a sweet tale! I need to get my hands on a copy. Thank you for always sharing your reads with us!

  29. I adore the pink harness! Awwwdorable. I’m reading some novels my mom past on to me now that she is done with them. I don’t seem to have a lot of time to read right now, but hoping to find some lazy days of summer to relax with a book soon.

  30. Hi Nora!! We didn’t know there was a book about Peaches & Paprika. It sounds sweet!

  31. Cats and a happy ending! My type of book 🙂
