The York Cat Crime Mysteries

I read books, and listen to audiobooks

I like mysteries, and I like cats!

Spending my downtime reading books about cats solving mysteries...oh yeah, sign me UP!

Theodore, despite his fluffy good looks, has a nose for human crime.  His human Emily has no idea that the cat is a detective, but Jonathan has his suspicions. Often going no farther than his backyard, Theodore finds he's up to his paws in trouble...and a touch of comedy!
The York Cat Crime Mystery Series, written by James Barrie
Book 1: The First of Nine
Book 2: Rear Window
Book 3: The Call of the Cat Basket

See the stack of books on the table behind Sweetie?
And that's just one baby stack of books at Eastside Cats, trust me!
I am devoted to the library...when life was normal, I'd visit multiple libraries in my travels.  I walk the shelves, looking for titles and authors that catch my fancy.

Sometimes, however, I must HAVE!
Owning books is a delight that is almost as luscious as being owned by a cat.

But how to have books without breaking one's budget?

From the website:
"AbeBooks is an online marketplace for books, fine art and collectibles where you can discover and buy the things you love. Trusted independent sellers from around the world offer for sale millions of new, used and rare books, as well as art and collectibles through the AbeBooks websites."

I thank my friend from Trout Talkin' Tabbies for suggesting Abe Books, and I'm a believer!
The York Cat Crime Mysteries were NOWHERE to be found at any local library, but Abe Books had them.
  And the price was right!

Those sound like fun books. :) And that illustration is so cute. Unfortunately, Jezebel had a tendency to claw my pages for attention. lol So thank heaven for e-readers, however much I love the smell of printed material. Heh... Happy reading!
