Bill, Thomas Memorial Library’s Cat

If you are ever in Bluff City, Tennessee and love cats, then you should definitely stop by Thomas Memorial Library.  There you will find good books and BillBill was a stray cat that has been adopted by the community around Thomas Memorial Library.  He has a bed behind the book drop and food and water dishes at the entrance.  If he is not outside the library, just take a look inside!  He has a bed behind the librarian’s desk inside as well.  He is a sweet cat!  I will try to post a picture soon.

Please say “Hello!” to the librarians at Thomas Memorial Library as well.  Kathryn and Andrea are terrific and a real asset to the community!

Do You Love Reading or Do You Love Books?

On Sunday, I was listening to a local NPR radio program called “On the Media” which posed an interesting question, “Do you love reading or do you love books?”  For me, the answer is both.

For author Ann Kirschner, the answer was more involved.  Ms. Kirchner actually read one book, “Little Dorrit” by Charles Dickens in four different formats.  First, she re-read an old copy she owned from her grad school days.  Then, she listened to an audiobook version.  The last two versions of “Little Dorrit” were on her Kindle and on her iPhone.

I don’t think that I could ever give up my books, but what about you?  Please let me know what you think!  Do you love books, or do you like to read, or both?  Please leave me a comment.

I have posted the link to the transcript of the “On the Media” interview here:  http://www.onthemedia.org/transcripts/2009/06/19/08.
