Whitehurst Diaries: Library layout to accommodate the Incredible Literary Cat
Library rearrangement pondered for Willis, with more emphasis on feline genres.
By Sharon Whitehurst
Such is the friendliness of Gradyville that when we stopped earlier this week at Janes Fertilizer to pay our bill, Jim was immediately drawn into conversation with a gentleman who sat at ease there, sipping coffee.
Their talk was easy - weather and crops, cattle, horses and good dogs.
I turned from writing the check--and was surprised to be called by my first name. I was also delighted to be informed that it was time for an update on the doings of Willis the Cat! [I consider this a tribute not only to the congeniality of Gradyville, but a definite reference to the bonding of CM readers!]
Book sorting continues. Willis the Cat hasn't made it downstairs to the new accomodations. He seems to prefer Haskell's cherry cupboards with convenient floor-level access.
He has spurned the titles on offer this morning and climbed to the third shelf--one which we suspect Haskell designed to display decorative objects.
No doubt I should rearrange the books below - perhaps 'The Incredible Journey' or 'James Herriot's Cat Stories' would be more edifying for a scholarly cat - or how about 'Birds of North America--Eastern Edition?'
