Dewey who became the world-famous library cat for 18 yrs when someone left him in the book depository. One of my all time favorite books
'Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World' (2008) by American author & librarian Vicki Myron. The heartwarming, true story of an abandoned kitten who went on to live an extraordinary life, inspiring a struggling single mother, transforming a sleepy library and the inhabitants of its depressed Iowa farm town, and ultimately capturing the hearts of animal lovers around the world.
"Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World" - How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa.
DEWEY - The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. Dewey Readmore Books is probably the most famous of all library cats, although he was by no means the first. Dewey lived at the Spencer Public Library in Iowa from 1988 to his death in 2006 and is the subject of a number of books and lately, a movie script.

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World -- by Vicki Myron (Author) , Bret Witter (Author) -- The public library in Spencer, Iowa was home to Dewey Readmore Books. He was found in the book return one cold January night in 1988. The staff found him the next morning and decided to adopt him. There's a book about Dewey and he gained considerable fame before his death in 2006.
"Dewey" By Vicki Myron The true story of a small-town Library Cat called Dewey.
Title: Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World Author: Vicky Myron Year Published: 2008 Genre: Adult non-fiction Pages: 297 Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Challenges: Non-Fiction/Non-Memoir; Winter Olympics 2014 (USA) Geography Connection (my Google Reading map): Iowa FTC Disclosure: I used a gift certificate to purchase this book and I am putting it in my school library's collection Summary (from the inside flap of the book): Dewey Readmore Books was only a few weeks only when he was stuffed into Spencer Public Library's book slot. He immediately won the heart of the town and especially the Library Director, Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. For the next nineteen years this Library cat never stopped charming the people of Iowa with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility (for a cat), and above all, sixth sense about who needed him most. As his fame grew, Dewey became the symbol of a proud farming community fighting the greatest crisis in its long history--and a source of inspiration for people all over the world. Review: I really should have read this book sooner, but I am not necessarily a cat person and thought it wouldn't appeal to me. Now, before I get a bunch of hate mail from all the cat-lovers out there, I don't dislike cats (I adored my cat when I was a child), but I am super allergic so tend to avoid petting cats and spending long periods of time with them. Whew, now that's taken care of, I can go on with my review. I was really touched by this book and can see how people all over have enjoyed Dewey's story as well as that of the town of Spencer, Iowa. I thought the book was just going to be the story of a cat, which I wasn't super excited about, but this book is so much more. I really enjoyed the background of the town, the author's family, and the times (1980s to 2005). All the non-Dewey stories really filled in the stetting and Dewey's impact on people in Spencer, in Iowa, and further afield. I had no idea that I would be so emotional about this book either. I found it funny and so touching in parts. I am definitely someone who gets teary at the good parts of books, not the sad parts. I could easily picture Dewey comforting those who were sad, encouraging those who were timid, and supporting those who were having trouble, such as the severely disabled girl, Crystal. I do think that the world needs happy news and that's one of the reasons that this book has done so well. We are inundated with horrible, sad, depressing news every day on television and the radio. To hear about a sweet cat who is bringing a town together and making people happy is such a great thing and he went viral, so to speak. If you'd like an easy, fun read that will make you feel good about things (though it is certainly not all good and happy in this book, be warned) then I recommend Dewey!

Out of personal tragedy comes a tiny, fiesty, very black kitten who spends her lifetime healing the family she loves. LOVED it! It was also interesting to read about New Zealand as a setting.
I don't know what ever got me started reading books about animals. This one is so sad and upsetting that I wanted to put it down, but I was glued to it. <3 Cleo
When Helen's son dies her life changes forever but a little black kitten sends them hope in healing the family.
Helen's 9 yr old son Sam pleaded for a cat so they went to look at a litter. They picked one but needed to wait til the kitten was old enough. Just a week later, Sam died in a car accident. Soon, a black kitten was delivered. Helen didn't want her, but Sam's little brother, Rob, identified w/ the kitten who'd also lost her brothers & smiled for the 1st time since Sam's death. The kitten -Cleo - stayed & slowly taught the family to laugh again becoming both their guardian & their friend.
MUST read if you are cat lover but have the tissues read for the last few pages.
Cleo by Helen Brown. Amazing book for anyone, cat lover or not.

You are a book lover. That is where I got my unending passion for reading amazing books from. You introduced me to books, the unimaginable stories they hold, and the magical bookstores and libraries that hold them. I don't know what I would do if you had never opened me up to loving reading so much. <3 Thank you.
Oh yes! I went into Powells bookstore in Oregon, and I almost cried... Mostly because I was practically broke.... But I was SOOO happy!

walking into a book store; the smell of old and new books .. #happy #books #bookshop #feeling
The best are used book bookstores. A used book has more character and mystery. You might find names and dates written on the cover, or hair, or part of a grocery list, a worn bookmark or notes for a book report. There might be observations scribbled in the margins and words underlined. There will be stains (some identifiable, some not). There might be water damage. (This person read this book in the bathtub!) And maybe the book falls open to one particular page. Used books have history.
