All I need to be entertained are cats within ear-scratching distance and a good book . . .OK, maybe that's not ALL I need, but it's a good start.

I love to read. And I love to get recommendations for books to read.

I started Cats and a Book to share the books I read with others. Some I love, some I don't, but you may love the ones I don't, so you're welcome to post your own comments and suggestions.

To make it easier to purchase books you may read about on the blog, I've linked to through The Cats and a Book Bookstore, which is located on the bottom of this page. Your purchases are fulfilled and handled through Amazon. To assure your privacy, Cats and a Book doesn't handle any of your payment or contact information.

Happy reading!

Have you ever wanted a better ending to a book you've read? If so, briefly what was the ending and what would you like it to have been?

  1. Yes. Although I enjoy Ann Patchett's work, there was something about the ending of Bel Canto that left me feeling unsatisfied. It seemed too "neat." That's not to say I could suggest a better alternative, but this is one book that comes to mind that I loved, up until the very ending, which felt more like an epilogue to me. I felt completely cheated by the book Atonement, because the reader learns there are alternate realities at the end of the book and, I don't want to spoil it for you, but things aren't what they seemed. And while I'm complaining about alternate endings, I'd really like to hear "The Long and Winding Road" without Paul's "yeah yeah yeah yeah" at the end.
