The Worm Reads - Choosing To Be

Choosing To Be: Lessons in Living from a Feline Zen Master by Kat Tansey.
As a cat lover I have always known that cats were founts of wisdom whenever they chose to be. Kat Tansey and her personal budda-cat, Poohbear Degoonacoon (a Maine Coon) share the wisdom as a conversation throughout this book.

Chapter by chapter Poohbear doles out slivers of knowledge for those with a desire to learn and to find inner peace.

Choosing To Be truly is an entertaining read written with love and a nice dose of humor along the way. I found that I liked it best when I read one chapter at a time with a break in between, sometimes of a week or more. The conversation was just as fresh when I came back as it was when I left.

Do yourself (and your cats) a favor, pick up Choosing To Be by Kat Tansey today and read it for a long time.

The Worm reads - The Uninvited

The Uninvited by Tim Wynne-Jones is a most excellent read. It is well written with full characters and rich dialogue.

Two people looking for peace and solitude find each other at a house on the snye (look it up, I had too!), but there is something else, someone else about. Or is there?

The Uninvited will grab you by the back of your mind and leave you with goosebumps of unconscious dread. All the while teaching, revealing how people, even family interact and react to one another and their environment.
