what's on the bookshelf

Librarian Sam with his iPodI've been doing a lot of reading this year but it wasn't until I started pulling this list together that I realized just how many books I've finished in the last six months. The photo shows a few. Others have already been loaned out and many are audio versions — which explains how my iPod made it into the picture.

Now, if you're a cat, books are ever-so-good for sitting upon (best if your human is trying to read the book when you sit) and also for chin scratching (another guaranteed attention-grabber). So, of course, Sir Sam had to get in the way get in on the fun. Once assured that he would indeed be featured in the photo, he quickly laid claim to the iPod. Mmmm. String.

No, that red you see on his paw isn't blood. Click photo for a larger image. He's wearing his Soft Paws® Nail Caps. They're vet-approved, Sir Sam doesn't complain at all about wearing them, and they've brought a new and awesome peace to our home — no more shredded upholstery!

But I digress. Here's my booklist. What's on your yours?
