My selection for Waiting on Wednesday...

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's a great way to learn about new books coming out.

I learned of this book from a feature in the newspaper. As a cat lover, I was immediately fascinated! A Street Cat Named Bob is about an awesome cat that lives with his owner, James, in London. James was a down-on-his-luck, hopeless drug addict until he met Bob. James was homeless and played his guitar for money. At the time, Bob was a mess too. He was terribly flea infested and ill. James used what little money he had to get Bob treated and brought him along as he played his guitar on the streets of London. Life began to change---for both of them!

People were very interested in Bob. Look at that face! Wouldn't you be?! They began to give James more money and he was encouraged to better his life---for himself and for Bob. A publishing professional passed by and the rest is history! James and Bob got a book deal and A Street Cat Named Bob was published in the UK. It's now in the US and I can't wait to read it!

I LOVE CATS!! Did I say that before?!? Lol...

  1. This sounds so sweet! I looooove cats and I wouldn't have known about this book if you hadn't shared it- so thanks for that, and for stopping by. :)

  2. LOL I love the way the author played with the title. A Streetcar Named Desire is a book I have read few months ago :) I'm not a huge fan of cats (I'm more of a dog person) but I hope you'll enjoy this one :)
