Mama’s Reading List

So mama was off yesterday, and had planned–after lazing around in bed snuggling with us, of course–to do some cleaning and organizing.  But in typical human fashion, she did the complete opposite.

She went book shopping.

Mama is an avid reader, and gets panicked if there aren’t at least two books on her nightstand.  Here is what she has right now:

Mama’s book pile–this should last her a while.

We like a mix of classic fiction and history, with some new stuff mixed in.  What’s funny is that mama was going to re-read “Pillars of the Earth”, then found out that Starz made a mini series out of it.  Then yesterday she decided to re-read “Brideshead Revisited” (which is set in post-World War I) and then found out that HBO is making a series about post-World War I (called “Boardwalk Empire”).  Funny how things work!

She even bought a metal bookmark:

She loves these because they are pretty, durable, and have positive messages on them.  She just doesn’t like us to play with the ribbons and beads (imagine that).

We love it when she reads, because she’s still for long periods of time and will give us scritches and kisses.  Sometimes we’ll all doze off together.  Reading is one of our favorite things to do!

    Oh that sounds like a great way to spend the day, with mom reading and you getting to get scritched and kissed! Our mom doesn’t read much because she is usually too busy or too tired, but she has lots of books that we like to knock of the shelf!

    Our person has read two of those books–you will really like the Dragon Tattoo. Sometimes we wish our person would take time off to read for days and pet us too!

  3. A few Good Cats says :

    One of our human staff works at a local library, so for obvious reasons is happy when people read books. We are of the opinion that reading is fine as long as it doesn’t take humans too far from their essential functions; i.e., waiting hand and foot on their cats.
