I know this has nothing to do with gardening....whatsoever, but there really is not too much to talk about in my yard, besides snow. School started back up and I have even more classes that I am taking. As you can imagine, I really revel in the time when I am not reading a scholastic book and am able to enjoy reading something that doesn't necessarily make me starter! We just got a new bookstore near my house, called, City Books. They are locally owned, and all the books are 20% off! I had never been in there so, I thought I would check it out. I didn't have any particular book in mind and just wanted to check out the place and take a break from studying. The book that I ran into is called Dewey, By Vicki Myron.
Dewey is in essence an autobiography of Vicki's life and the life of the whole community in Spencer Iowa, and how a small library cat (Dewey Readmore Books) changed their lives. Rated by the New York times as their #1 best seller, it is for sure a must read. Spencer is a small town in 1988. The book starts off with the sad plight of a cat(Dewey) who was shoved down the library after-hours-drop-box on a -5 degree night. Frostbitten, skinny and dirty he was found by Vicki (the library manager) and the rest of the staff. This adventure shows how one cat can bring together the community, the state, a nation, and eventually the world. Through the loving touch of a cat named Dewey. I would tell you more, but that would just be unfair to you. So, if you ever get the chance to read this book, you absolutley must. Be prepared to have a box of tissues near by though.
