I never those series, but I love to read The Cat In The Hat books when I was little. My sister reads Garfield comics. She loves Garfield.

Shirley Rouseau Murphy's cat books are very good.

Cleo, The Cat Who Mended A Family - what a wonderful book. It's not a mystery, but I found out after I finished it, it's a true story.

A story about a black cat named Cleo, purrfect.

Cali, Cinderella, Cleo and Charlee

Always in my heart, my lovely Cinderella, running free at the Bridge.

Homer's Odyssey is a great cat book. I think it stands out as my favorite ever. (Not to be confused with the classic novel)

Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, Or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat [Book]

I wouldn't go that far, but I enjoy her books. She's very good at
describing Siamese behavior (or "behaviour" for our Brit subscribers).

I get catalogs from two remainder/overstock booksellers, and have
a large number of her many books.

My Nookcolor is well loved, I carry it just about everywhere with me. I recently finished reading The Pillars of the Earth and World Without End by Ken Follett. I *really* enjoyed both. My mom brought them to my attention and I put my previous series on hold. Which was ok, it was getting kind of old after 7 or 8 books. That series was by Julia Spencer Fleming (Clare Fergusson series).

Right NOW I'm just about to finish Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame Smith. and have NO idea where I'm going from there. Ken Follet has a few other series so maybe I'll take a look at them.

I've got ALL LJB s cat cozies on my nook! Thanks,Sis! I'm on kind of a fantasy kick,I might do Christopher Paolini's Eragon. Also, one of my very favorites -an 'urban' fantasy- is Dark Heart by Margeret Weis and Dave Baldwin. A long-vanquished dragon has human 'disciples' that terrorize our world-the story mostly takes place in Chicago. They sprout wings,claws and fangs,and chomp humans who get to close,or find themselves in the dragon's way. There's other-good-dragons and their human friends out there,too! The story centers around Sandra 'Bruce" Mccormick,her crippled,disfigured brother Benny,and Justin Sterling,the Chicago disciple. It's book 1 of The Dragon's Disciple. Has ANYONE heard about more books in this series!?

Leann Sweeney's The Cat in Trouble series are good, light mysteries with cats. Or you could try Sofie Kelly's Magical Cats Mystery series.
