I saw this book on Karen's blog as a suggested book to read: Lessons In Stalking: Adjusting to Life With Cats by Dena Harris. I ordered it for my Kindle and started reading it this afternoon. I have had many true LOL's while reading this this afternoon. I'm 41% done with it already!

Highly recommend this as a mood booster.

I'm holding you two to this - that it is funny. I just bought it for my Kindle. :)

If you don't laugh, I'll send you the $1.99 it cost to purchase it for Kindle. :D

I'll have to see if it's available for the NOOK. I need a distraction.

If there's something you want them to get, you can write a mail and ask them to buy it, so I have ordered it at the library. Hope it won't take too long. I will SO enjoy this book! :)

You will love it! You will get many laughs and smiles. I wish the book was longer though.

Put your checkbook away. I really enjoyed it - especially The Big Brown Mouse, Yoga Cat, Kitty Jihad, Jingle Ball Horrors and The Creature Under the Fridge. :D

I really enjoyed it! There's another one by the same author. :)

I really enjoyed it! There's another one by the same author. :)

I checked Amazon to see if it is available for Kindle, but it isn't. However, the following 2 books about Norton are available for the Kindle. Doesn't make sense that the first one isn't, but the second and third are.

The second one is A Cat Abroad - The further Adventures of Norton
The third on is The Cat Who Will Live Forever - The Final Adventures of Norton

I'll have to keep an eye out for the first, since I don't want to read the other 2 before the first one.
