‘Dewey’ is #2

Dewey rose to #2 on the NYT Hardcover Nonfiction list this week, after three weeks on the list. If you haven’t caught Dewey Fever yet (and even if you have), check out the recent review by Christian Science Monitor Books Editor Marjorie Kehe. Dewey reminds her of a friend’s advice about the difference between dogs and cats, “A dog leaps immediately into your heart. A cat arrives with a slow crawl”;

I picked this book up dubiously, expecting a big, gooey cinnamon roll of a read – way too sticky-sweet to merit more than a few bites.

Instead, I made it to the last page and I was crying when I got there. Sure enough, the little guy had crawled his way right into my heart.

Reserves are piling up (ten to one in some areas); consider buying more copies.
