26 Cats Who Love Books More than You Do

Cats are pretty uninhibited when it comes to expressing their love of books—like this one, basking in the throes of literary worship.


Many cats are hardworking library and bookseller cats. Like this precious rat exterminator . . .

Dignified and regal, they preside over book stacks.

Some take starring roles in fiction, like in Clea Simon’s Kittens Can Kill.
