It’s Monday ! What Are You Reading?

HI everyone! We are joining The Book Date’s It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Blog Hop. Several weeks ago, I won A Cat Taught Me That by Charlotte Gerber from a giveaway on Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows.

It is a cute little book ( 43 pages) with lessons the author has learned from cats throughout her life. Her cat Louie has tips in the book too. They have a blog called Awesome Louie and I was very sad when I just went to check it out and saw the post that he went to The Rainbow Bridge on May 20th. Click here to visit.

I also just finished a great memoir called Dimestore: A Writer’s Life by Lee Smith. I am embarrassed to write that I had never heard of her before this book came out. I love memoirs though so I gave it a chance and I am glad that I did. Her memoir tells an honest account of growing up in a coal mining town in Appalachia. Her father owned the dime store and also suffered from severe depression. It is so much more than an account of her life though, I love how she explains the writing process and how even when writing fiction an author uses his or her life for ideas.

I am hoping the photo of Prancie is Awww… worthy for Comedy Plus’ Awww… Mondays Blog Hop.

I hope everyone has a nice Memorial Day and takes time to remember those that lost their lives for our freedom.
