More Celebrity Books I’ve Loved

Much as I love fiction, I do also love a little bit of non fiction from time to time. I admit, most of the non fiction books I read tend to be celebrity autobiographies. Even then, a lot of them are comedians. I’m not saying I have form, but yeah, I have form.

Some of these are a little based on the writer’s stand up routines, so you do need to keep in mind that if you’ve seen their shows it’s going to be more than a little familiar. If you’ve got a funny bone, you’ll really love these.

Tag Thursday: Things Cats Do Book Tag

Last year, June 15th was a pretty dark day as we said goodbye to the true pet of the family – my cat Lucky. Six months later, her mother Alfie followed.

Coincidentally, Tag Thursday falls on the date one year on. I found the Things Cats Do tag on Kate’s blog, and it seems like the perfect fit for this month.
