Giveaway: Dewey’s Nine Lives by Vicky Myron

Dewey's Nine Lives Vicky Myron

In Dewey’s Nine Lives: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat Who Inspired Millions, Vicky Myron offers nine stories about some very special cats, inspired by the thosands of letters and e-mails she received from readers around the world after the phenomenally successful publication of Dewey: The Small-Town Libary Cat Who Touched the World.

The new paperback edition, which will be released November 1, includes two new stories about Dewey himself and features seven new real-life tales of friendship including the story of a Vietnam veteran whose heart was opened by his relationship with a rescued cat and the story of a woman who vows she will never love another cat until a special one unexpectedly comes into her life. The book also shares the love story of author Vicki Myron and Glen Alberton, and their unexpected connection through Dewey himself.

For more on this book, please read my previous review of the hardcover edition.

I’m giving away one copy of the paperback edition to one lucky reader. To enter the giveaway, tell me in a comment why you’d like to win this book. For an additional chance to win, tweet about this giveaway or share on Facebook, and post the link in a separate comment. This giveaway ends Friday, November 11.

This book was sent to me by the publisher.

    I have been rescuing cats for as long as I can remember. I have 13 that are my own, all spayed and neutered. I pick up stays and hurt one and find good homes for them. I am an animal lover as well as a book lover.

    We own three rescue cats, and we love focusing much of our photography business on pet photos. I read the first Dewey and cried, laughed, and cried some more with such a touching life. Every day we see so many Dewey’s out there, and each story always amazes me. I would love to read more about the lives Dewey touched, and I’m so glad to have read his story.

    I love love love cats and I love to read. I am unemployed and on a tight budget and so I can’t splurge on too many things, books included. I would be very excited to win a book, especially about a cat!! I lost my Hobo just a short time ago. He was a big brown tabby, almost 15 years old and had never been sick one day in his whole life…..he suddenly died, the vet said it was heart disease.
    Thank you for the opportunity to win this book.

    I would love to win this book. I have the first one and many other cat related books. I share most if not all of them with my cat loving family: my sister, my daughter and my 3 grandchildren. Each book is well worn. Sometimes I get them back when everyone is through with them and read them one more time. If I don’t win I hope it goes to some little child who doesn’t have many books, but enjoys reading. Linda

    We loved the original Dewey book and this follow-up has its own charm. It has a few more tidbits about Dewey but it’s more about other cats directly or indirectly connected to Dewey. Since we’ve read it, please don’t enter us.

    I would love to have this book, I read the original Dewey book a while ago. I sometimes share what I read about other cats with my three inside kitties so they know there are other cat people all over the world who have adventures too and to inspire and warm their little feline hearts! They listen too, especially if the readings are sprinkled with “meow’s and other little kitty sounds :-). I am happy for whoever gets this wonderful book, thanks for the opportunity 🙂

    Dewey was such a great story. I am a retired librarian and now volunteer as a cat cuddler at my local shelter. I would love to read more stories like Dewey’s.

    Hi, I read this book from the library but would love a copy for my own private library. After reading the book I thought every library should have a cat. They would make a warm, welcoming addition to the library. I am a Library Technician and so working in a library this book appealed to me.

    Neither of Jen’s parents had pets but she likes to think she had a hand in their choosing to later include pets in their lives. Now her dad even feeds strays and her Mom calls her kitties her babies.

    I read Myron’s original “Dewey” book and loved every word of it. A dear story of REAL “cat love” for sure. Anyone who was captivated by Dewey’s story from being found in a library book return box as a tiny kitten to his touching so many lives during his time as a library cat would love to read any other stories Myron can tell us! Including me. I’d love to win it…..
