Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Poetry for Cats

Poetry for Cats: The Definitive Anthology of Distinguished Feline Verse - Henry Beard

I needed this today - I needed to laugh, and between this small gem and watching Easter-cat trying to creatively bath herself while wedged at an odd angle between pillows on the bed (SO wish I had my camera), I felt lighter this afternoon than I did this morning.  (The Cubs winning the world series didn't hurt either.)


Having read them all, my favourite is unequivocally The End of the Raven by Poe's cat.  A close second is Hamlet's Cat's Soliloquy by Shakespeare's Cat.  Is it wrong that I now have a better understanding of Hamlet's soliloquy after reading his cat's?  Don't answer that.  But I can see educational value in using poems like these to hook young adults who need to read the originals in high school.


If you're a cat lover, this one is fun and well-written.  A definite winner I'd have never found if not for my BookLikes friends.
