Yesterday, we adopted a new kitten from Maricopa County Animal Control. Meet Josh! He's a six-month-old cuddly, playful kitten, with a purr that can be heard across the room. This is his first picture.
Our three older cats are not exactly sure what to make of him. There's a lot of growling and hissing, but they'll come around. When Nikki was a kitten, it took about a week for everyone to settle in. In the meantime, Jim and I are exhausted babysitters. He wants attention all of the time, and we wear out before he does. However, he's just a lover, as you can see in the picture with Jim.
We do have proof that he rests occasionally, though.
So, what's the connection to books in this post? Well, first, if you've entered my contests, you've read that Jim picks the winners. So, the picture of Jim with Josh is a picture of my husband, who loves to read as much as I do. And, the first person who comments on the blog, with the title of the book on the arm of Jim's chair, will receive a free book.

It's an honor to be asked to review books, and I'm grateful to all the publishers, publicists, and authors who send me books. Thank you. Reviews will appear on my blog if I've had a chance to read, and finish, the book. If I do not finish a book, I won't review it, and I will not respond to emails asking when, or if, I'll be reviewing a book.
My reviews are only my opinion, and do not reflect the views of the Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library.
I will not review self-published books, and, at the present time, do not accept books in e-book format.
