Well, this takes the cake. I’m churning out early commitments to 2013 activities, after a week of closing 2012 events… and find myself wonderfully eligible for one that is valid until February! This is one of many reasons to love people who commence & conclude away from the traffic Jan – Dec circles generate!
This makes 17 groups, all properly finished, for my first time competing. This indeed sets a record for joining an event latest in the year of all! I cherish animals and Yvonne chose this adorable portrait for “What An Animal V“. One of my sweet kittens lays in an office chair beside me, as I begin & close with this post.
At least 6 books with any of these requirements:
A. There is an animal in the title of the book
B. There is an animal on the cover of the book
C. An animal plays a major role in the book
D. A main character is (or becomes) an animal.
I love cat mysteries and clean the clock on this one! Including reviews, I completed the 21 novels below that prominently feature cats and others. I discounted 3 that depict cats on their covers but didn’t incoporate them in the books.
