Book Beginning: Dining and Driving with Cats

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS

THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



This is, above all, a love story – about the love shared between my wife Alice and me, but also our shared love for travel and history, our love of food, and our love for our sweet and wily cats, Munchie and Tuffy.

Dining and Driving with Cats: Alice Unplugged by Pat Patterson. This is a true-life love story tells of a husband and wife road trip from Mexico, across the US South, with their two cats. The Kindle edition has links to the places they visit on their adventures.





Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

FACEBOOK: Rose City Reader has a Facebook page where I post about new and favorite books, book events, and other bookish tidbits, as well as link to blog posts. I'd love a "Like" on the page! You can go to the page here to Like it. I am happy to Like you back if you have a blog or professional Facebook page, so please leave a comment with a link and I will find you.

TWITTER, ETC: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book  Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.

Great title and excerpt. Now I want to know more.

They traveled with cats? What a marvel, given it is hard to accomplish anything with cats helping.

Sounds like a sweet title.

I'm a cat-lover, but can't imagine travelling far with my cat, let alone on a road-trip like that!

I like the excerpt a lot. It looks like an interesting story. Enjoy your current read!

I have just recently discovered this new phenomenon of taking your cats wherever you go. Sounds like a very unique story. Enjoy! :)

Harvee Lau said...

Something new. I'm used to reading books about travels with dogs. This should be interesting!

Katherine P said...

You know when I think about road trips I don't think about cats but this sounds fantastic!

Veronika Tóth said...

These two people must have an exciting life together and they must have so many amazing memories to share. Good for them! :)

I have friends whose cat is supposed to be a good traveler. I have a hard time imagining it myself! Certainly not our two.

I like the idea of the book linking to the places they traveled. That's clever.

Elizabeth said...

That title is so funny.

ENJOY, and thanks for sharing.
