bookshelves: guilty-pleasures
Read in February, 2010

I am a sucker for books about cats, dogs, horses, etc. ever since reading an anthology of animal stories called Cold Nose, Warm Heart as a young girl. Dewey fist right into the best of those - a kitten shoved into the library drop return on a sub-zero night adopts the library and townspeople as much as they adopt him. The writing style tends toward gooey, but doesn't take away from the story, which is as much about small towns as it is about Dewey Readmore Books' 19 years at the Spencer library. Spencer itself is a character, learning, growing, shrinking, struggling and adapting to its changing environment.

I thoroughly enjoyed Dewey. Have a hankey handy - our pet friends live relatively short lives, yet bring us so much in return.
