Why are you reading this book?
It’s one of those books that everyone assumes I’ve already read, so it was time to catch up. Also, this might have been one of the first requested through PaperBackSwap – it just took me a while to finally pick it up.
What is the first line?
I used to have a cat, an old fighting tom, who would jump through the open window by my bed in the middle of the night and land on my chest.

Anything else you’d like to say?
It took me longer than expected to learn the rhythm of this book and really enjoy it, particularly since it seems to be recommended along with many of my other favorites. The section on stalking muskrats won me over, though, so pick up the book and read that chapter first if you need to.
