New Books from #ReadPawty Selected Authors

Many of the authors we have showcased for #ReadPawty have new books out! Here are some in no particular order:

Oogie: The dog only a Family Could Love is still in hardback.

Classified as Murder (Cat in the Stacks Mystery) by Miranda James. Release Date 5-3-11

The Cat, the Lady and the Liar: A Cats in Trouble Mystery by Leann Sweeney (April 5, 2011) Mom is reading this now, and it is the 3rd in Sweeney's series.

Racing in the Rain: My Life as a Dog by Garth Stein (May 3, 2011) Art of Racing in the Rain was adapted for special needs.

Mom read the first 2 of this series, but didn't choose them for #ReadPawty. I think she sent them to MizzBassie since the books take place in San Fransisco. The cats are really good, though. How to Moon a Cat (Cats and Curios Mystery) by Rebecca M. Hale (release 7-1-11)

Mom just finished this new one and liked it enough to consider it for #ReadPawty: Curiosity Thrilled the Cat: A Magical Cats Mystery by Sofie Kelly The author has a second one coming out in September. She liked the magical cats who help solve crimes.

Choosing to Be: Lessons in Living from a Feline Zen Master by Kat Tansey . Mom is reading this now, and likes it a lot since the cat is teaching the human zen principles such as patience and meditation. Although it is fiction, it is more of a series of connected essays about how zen can help heal a troubled mind. The zen master just happens to be a cat, but that makes it more believeable for Mom.

Keep me posted about what you are reading this summer besides #readpawty books. Add comments to this post so we can all see!
