WCB - 111 BookCat

I always make sure to have a couple of new books to read. Kamikaze likes to pre-read them and highlight parts that he thinks I'll really enjoy. When I brought my latest purchases home, he pounced right on one of the books. He's been looking forward to reading it!

He lies on his back on the bed and holds the book up in the air while reading. We're often in the exact same pose. We both have a good laugh when we lick our fingers at the same time to turn the page.

Kamikaze has to really focus on what he's reading. His English has gotten a lot better since he first came to live with me, but still, Japanese is his mother-tongue. Look how hard he's concentrating.

This was, apparently, an especially riveting part of the book.

What's that Kami? You finished the book? Already?!? It was good? Right on! High five!

My turn now!

So while I start on The Kite Runner, Kamikaze's going to pre-read Barrel Fever. I know he's going to enjoy it. We love David Sedaris.

So, why don't you pick up a good book and have yourself a read? I've heard something about some new book about some wizard-kid has just come out. I should look into that.

But before you bury your nose in a book, what say you head on over to this weekend's round-up of fantastic felines over at Paulchen's Food Blog! Thanks to them for hosting this time around!

Kami how sweet of you to help your mom reading!

Mosaic Cats said...

Oh My your kitty is darling! And massive! We want him! And so literate. We love that in a kitty.

Hey, thanks so much for the lovely words about my mosaics. Much appreciated. Dawg insists on tearing off her NEW bandages every time I leave the house, but given that it's not cancer, and that Willie & Bianca had great vet visits this morn, I won't bitch. Too much.

Take care and come 'round often. We like you two!

That's so nice to have a reader kitty. China Cat & Willow are not so much the readers but they do snuggle up and help with the reading!

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

You are a real black beauty! I particularly love the third picture. So sweet...

Bad Kitty Cats & Megan said...

What great pictures. Love the upclose shots! Our Brats just eat the books. Enjoy your reading! Purrs and Scritches

My what a large book you have. My what a long tongue you have too.

Dragonheart said...

Wonderful photos! You are a very intelligent cat to be able to read. Very impressive!

Pia K said...

Ah yes, literature and cats - those two very things you just can't live without!

And if I may say so, you're looking gorgeous bigboned panther in those pics, high five indeed:)

CatSynth (Amar & Luna) said...

Ah, it's great to see literate cats. Luna has been doing a bit of summer reading as well (a few WCBs ago).

Hi Jenn & Kamikaze,
This is one of the best postings to your blog with Kamikaze. I love the notes and the photos. Take care. Let us know which book was the better of these two.

I loved reading The Kite Runner! And Kami has the most beautiful fur! I hope he doesn't tell your the endings of the book before you read them. :):)
