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!

Book Club Discussion Questions for Miss Hargreaves

Norman had had an encounter with his imagination at a young age, at which time his father ominously warned him, “Always be careful, my boy, what you make up. Life’s more full of things made up on the Spur of the Moment than most people realize. Beware of the Spur of the Moment. It may turn and rend you.” Think about a time that your own story has taken a turn because of a “Spur of the Moment” decision. Were the results what you expected? Were there unintended consequences?

How does Miss Hargreaves change when Norman “loses control” of her? How do you think this happens? What do you think could happen if Norman doesn’t regain control?

Near the end of the book, Miss Hargreaves says, “I am not as other people . ( . . .) For a little while . . . I broke into a life which I was never intended to lead.” What implications does this concept have for any mortal?
