Books for June 13 #ReadPawty

I want to thank everyone for their recommendations for books. Anipals have been asking if I would feature more series, something I think will be great summer reading. We also had a request which was subsequently given 2 paws up. So here are the books:

Cat on the Edge: A Joe Grey Mystery; Author: Shirley Rousseau Murphy published in 1996. New copies are $7.99, lots of used copies available. I only found one library copy available from my library consortium.

Ms. Murphy is known for her fantasy fiction, and she applies some of her skills to her lead character, Joe, and his cat friends. I am finding the development really interesting, and I think this book can lead to a lively debate. I also find Ms. Murphy to be a good writer, and it is hard to put the iPawd down! A book review in the AT will be published closer to the meeting so I don't spoil the plot.

A Three Dog Life; Author: Abigail Thomas published in 2006. new hardcover $8.80 from Amazon, paperback $10, lots of used copies. I got paperback from B&N at $4.48. There were lots of copies available through my library.

I have not read this, but it was recommended at ReadPawty, and Sebastian agreed that it was a great book. I will read ASAP and write a review. However, if someone else would like to guest write reviews for the AT, let me know!

Couple more pieces of business. I will be posting updates on new books by the authors we have read. I will also investigate another book club, this one for classics. I will also do an twtvite so we can be reminded of the next pawty.

Finally, I created a Twitter account, @ReadPawty. If anyone would like to make any announcements, I will be glad to give you the login. I will be tweeting again soon to announce books, so please follow.
