Books in the Wild: Cat Edition

February 22, 2013

Last month our regular Books in the Wild feature was devoted to dogs and books. In the interest of equal time, this month we are featuring cats and books.

I Could Pee on This Cover

As much as we all love our pets, Random Acts of Reading is all about books, so it’s only fitting that this post feature a book, as well as all the kitties with books. When I first noticed this book on the counter in one of the many Independent Bookstores I get to spend my work days in I thought “what a cute picture of a kitten, and books”……then I saw the title, and as any cat owner would do, I snickered. Then I bought a copy. Yes, I Could Pee on This and Other Poems By Cats, makes perfect sense to anyone who has been, as they say “owned by a cat”. Cats are weird, funny, fuzzy and adorable, and here at Random Acts of Reading today, they are comfy, cozy and irresistable among the books!

    I think everything said was very reasonable.
    However, consider this, suppose you were to create a killer post title?
    I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title to maybe get people’s attention?
    I mean Books in the Wild: Cat Edition | Random Acts of
    Reading is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they write article titles to get viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
