In other news, my mother-in-law got my kitty a Cat's Meow. It is this battery-operated device that mimics a tiny objects moving underneath a piece of nylon. Lunabelle, my kitty, loves it so much. I made two videos and put them up on YouTube to show my mother-in-law. Here are links Lunabelle playing with the Cat's Meow and another video of her playing with the Cat's Meow. If you were considering getting one, check them out. When my husband or I put it away, she cries for it. We call it her Kitty X-Box.
I receive from V Is for Virgin by Kelly Oram from the Dreamy December Read-a-Thon. I also won the Harlequin Teen Another Little Piece of My Heart Giveaway, which was hosted by Lauren from Lose Time Reading. In addition to some swag, I got The Juliet Spell by Douglas Rees, My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent, and Inside Out by Marie V Synder. I also received some swag and a copy of Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman from Jennifer from the The Bawdy Book Blog as a prize from the Ho Ho Ho Read-a-thon.
I got it in my head that I needed the American version of the Harry Potter books in physical form (I have the e-books). I didn't want to pay full price for them again (I used to own but gave them away after getting the e-books and the hardback British editions). I popped over to the local Goodwill and picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. They are categorized as "children's paperbacks", so I got them for $0.69 each. I am hoping to find the rest of the series over time. My husband said that I should try to collect all of the different versions of the books. It is going to be a fun little challenge! I also picked up Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. Because this was an adult paperback, I spent a whole $0.99.
A Study in Ashes by Emma Jane Holloway: I am really enjoying this steampunk, magic tale of Sherlock's spunky niece.
A Dance with Dragons by GRR Martin: This is going to be a slow read for me, because I don't have a lot of time to listen to an audio book. I will probably be listening to this book when the next book comes out! :)
