Like all the Cat Who stories, a nice light read perfect (or should that be purrfect :-)) for sitting in front of the fire on a grey and miserable afternoon. I've been reading these books completely out of sequence, just in the order I come across them, but they're self-contained enough to do that, and so far it hasn't spoilt any of the stories to know what happens to some of the characters in later books.

I learnt something interesting reading this one: at one point Jim Qwilleran is preparing for a dinner party, and there is mention of him asking someone to write out the place cards and gentlemen's envelopes. I'd never heard of the concept of gentlemen's envelopes before, so I did a bit of googling, and came across the answer in an extract from an Emily Post book. Apparently, when you work out the seating plan for your dinner party, you write out an envelope for each gentleman, and in it put the name of the lady who will be sitting on his right at the dinner. The envelopes are then given to the gentlemen (presented on a tray, of course!) as they go into the drawing room, so that they know which lady they should escort into the dining room. Hmm, maybe I should try that the next time I invite friends for dinner... (though the lack of a drawing room might be a problem!)

Another great Sunday read - I feel so bad that I haven't registered that I have them earlier than this. This is the third Cat Who That has been sitting in the read pile and they are so much fun - if you love cats, a light but witty who dun it you have to give this series a try. No need to read in sequence

Left on the table after tonight's meetup, so I took it home to continue its journey.

Journal Entry 12 by AvidReader54 from Melbourne, Victoria Australia on Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Driving interstate to Brisbane, I was listening to ABC radio and heard an installment of a serial - about a cat detective. I was intrigued. Imagine my surprise when my Brisbane motel had one of these cat detective books in its lobby. A book crossing book! Two people in my household have read it and I will release it in Ross House, Melbourne. Thank you to whoever left it in Brisbane.
