A Street Cat Named Bob

Category: Books

The last time I read a book for me has been more than a year ago. Not that I have given up on reading altogether; I tried, but it had seemed impossible to try to finish a book when you have to run a household with 2 kids! The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo has been on my bedside table for more than a year now, and I still have not gone past page 102…

Anyhow. Silver Bullet had picked up “A Street Cat Named Bob” on one of his travels and there were only 2 reasons why I had attempted to read it:

  • There’s a cat story in there
  •  Silver Bullet said it was an easy read. He tends to be a very, very slow reader, yet he finished reading it in a few hours while in transit.(very promising!)

A Street Cat Named Bob is based on a true story on how one man found and his cat found hope (and each other) in the streets. James Bowen, a street musician who was once a homeless man,  had turned into one of the bestselling authors on how his cat had saved him from drugs. He had his first “debut” in YouTube when somebody posted up a video of him and his cat while he was busking. In fact, if you search in YouTube, there are several videos in there about the cat and the street musician.

It is a very heart-warming story and I enjoyed reading it. While I couldn’t find the time to do a one-go-marathon reading, I managed to read a couple of tens a day, and finished the entire book by the 4th night. Very slooowwwww as compared to my usual reading pace, but at least that was ONE book read after a 2 year hiatus.

I miss reading. I really need to try harder to get back into the groove of reading again.Bedtime stories for the kids not included.
