April's Bookish Art...

Charles Burton Barber -- Girl Reading With Pug, 1879
"When her mind was discomposed...a book was 
the opiate that lulled it to repose."
--Ann Radcliffe, The Romance of the Forest

  1. I often have a cat curled up on me while I'm reading, and it can be so soothing. It's definitely an incentive to stay put and keep reading.

  2. I love this painting. That girl must have really loved her pug (and vice versa). I hope they both had wonderful lives.

  5. That pug looks so lovable! It's always nice to have my cat curled up with me while I'm reading, so I can relate.

    I'm thrilled to hear you enjoyed In Her Sights! I'm looking forward to the next in the series. You can hardly go wrong with a Katie Ruggle. :)

  6. Love that pic. I don't have a pet but I can imagine how great it is to read cuddling with your dog/cat. :)
