Furry Book List  

These books mainly feature animals as the central or secondary characters, and in most of them, the animals talk or have human-like reasoning--aka "anthropomorphism". Many are suited for juvenile readers, while others are for mature readers only. Books that I own or have read library copies of are marked with a "*"; all the others were recommended to me. (Once I get them all sorted into categories, I will then sort them alphabetically, so please bear with me until then!) Click on any link to view, read about and/or purchase these books from: In Association with Amazon.com Also, if you're an avid furry book reader and have a LiveJournal account, then please join the FurryReaders community! :)
