Outside of a Dog, a Book Is a Man’s Best Friend. Inside of a Dog It’s Too Dark to Read.

What’s better than photos of famous writers? Photos of famous writers with their pets, that’s what! My favorite:


I need to keep that kitten-on-the-shoulder shot in mind for future author photos. Of course, I’ll need to one-up Twain and have a kitten on each shoulder. Bring on the kittens!

Make sure to check out all the pictures; they’re so cute! And if you still need some more bookish animals, check out these pictures of cats and their books.
