Relaxing on World Lion Day

This celebration was founded by Big Cat Rescue, the world’s largest accredited sanctuary dedicated to big cats. August 10th is a day for people to come together and pay tribute to the mighty lion in as many ways as possible.  For me, that means books!  Now, on to the "mane" event.
