My cat steadfastly refusing to be photographed with 30 of my favorite books

In dubious honor of my upcoming 30th birthday, I present: my cat steadfastly refusing to be photographed with 30 of my favorite books.

boop1

Dr. Boop steadfastly refuses to be photographed with 20 poemas de amor y una canción desesperada (Neruda) and The Stranger (Camus).

boop2

Idem Death and the Penguin (Kurkov), The Satanic Verses (Rushdie) and The Center of Things (McPhee).

boop3

Her interests do include cookie crumbs but do not include The House of Leaves (Danielewski), The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí (Dalí) or Confessions of a Pretty Lady (Bernhard).

boop4

Dr. Boop is strongly interested in the ancient art and science of plumbing, but she’s iffy on The Halloween Tree (Bradbury), Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams (Plath), Anna Karenina (Tolstoy) and Devils (Taschen/Neret).

Dr. Boop refuses to even acknowledge the existence of The Body Artist (Delillo), The Fall of America (Ginsberg), Hello Cruel World (Bornstein), The Catcher in the Rye (Salinger) or Zombie (Oates).

boop6

She briefly considered being photographed with Doc and Fluff (Califia), Welcome to Night Vale (Fink and Cranor) and Wigfield (Sedaris, Dinello and Colbert), but eventually decided against it.

boop7

The doctor had grave reservations about being seen to endorse The Selected Poetry of Mayakovsky, The Beat Reader, The Miracle Hater (Hareven), The Bell (Murdoch), and especially Lunar Park (Ellis).

boop8

She couldn’t get away fast enough from Venus in Furs (von Sacher-Masoch), The Twelve Chairs (Ilf & Petrov), The Woman Destroyed (de Beauvoir) and The History of Luminous Motion (Bradfield).
