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?

  Joanie is posing with I Left my Homework In The Hamptons : What I Learned Teaching The Children of the One Percent by Blythe Grossberg.  This one caught my attention because I was a tutor for the high school in my town from 1993-2007.  The kids I worked with were not rich, they were usually home because they were in trouble or the other kind of in trouble ( pregnant).

This book is interesting and a peak into a world I know nothing about. She writes of kids making dioramas out of Manolo Blahnik boxes and leaving homework at their other house in The Hamptons.

Rosie is posing with Indoor Cat: How to Enrich Their Lives and Expand Their World by Laura J Moss and Lynn Bahr, DVM. A lot of information in the book is stuff most cat lovers already know, but it was still worth reading. It shows how we think vs. how a cat thinks and explains ways to improve their lives. There are directions to make a window box for $35 and other ways to bring the outdoors in. I recommend this for anyone who wants to make life better for their kitty.

Not sure if Rosie or Penny will be here tomorrow. Penny might be tired from her visit to Teddy’s kitchen.  Whoever is here will update you in Emmy who is getting a blood pressure check in the morning.



  1. They are both posing nicely with the books. That first one must be a real eye opener!

  2. What an eye-opening title!!! Will take a look but how can we reach those kids at home or in trouble and keep them OUT of trouble? I love it that a young woman of 14 has started a Banned Book Club in Pa for her friends who feel removing books from libraries and schools is criminal. WONDERFUL little girl. Mama has just started, after years of reading thousands of authors, Agatha Christie’s books!!! A kind of restful and wonderful interlude for the day’s stresses and activities. But she also loved all of the Maisie Dobbs books and Jacqueline Windspear’s “Next Year We’ll All Be Laughing” memoir.

    1. I am reading Jacqueline Windspear’s too because you had commented on it a while ago. It is good. XO

  3. Very cute book ambassadors! Cat books are helpful in reminding me about all the things I knew but forgot.

  4. Sounds like two great reads, especially the last one.

    I’m currently reading Burning Bright (A Peter Ash Novel) by Nick Petrie. A really great read.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week, Ellen. Scritches to all the precious kitties. ♥

  5. They both look adorable with their book poses. I’m particularly curious about that cat book. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the suggestions. xo

  8. Those books sound really good! I believe I know Lynn Bahr, DVM. I’m sure that book is full of great information. I’m not currently reading any books (my life is a bit chaotic right now), but the last one I read I was the audiobook narrator for. I’m very proud of the job I did.

  9. Charlee: “Wow, usually kids have to say the dog ate their homework, not that they left it in their other house.”
    Lulu: “That’s a waste of good paper. I say go ahead and give it to the dog.”
