Um, •people• reading or involved with books/bookstores only, or if I can find a copy of The Tale of Despereaux (for example), would a mouse who reads - which is important to the story - count?
Despereaux is one of my favorite books, so it would definitely count. It doesn't have to be a human reading, though that's the most probable we will find.
Oh, goodie. Then this adorable book I'm reading now should count too. :D
Right now the mouse has fallen so far into the story he's reading that he's interacting directly with the protagonist. :)
How cute is that. I'll have to look it up.
I recently finished The Wild Robot, which was recommended by another BCer who works for the library and, like me, loves children's, juvenile, and young adult books. It was wonderful. Highly recommended.
