This past Saturday was my Third Annual Critter Christmas Party with the Cleveland Animal Protective League. They brought four dogs and eight kittens to the library. Throughout the day over 100 people stopped in to see the animals and leave donations. We even had one adoptions!
This is Dinks. She found a forever home this weekend!
Izzy, Coco Strudel, and Tina are just a few of the pets that went back to the APL. If you are thinking about adding a new pet to your family please consider giving a rescue animal a chance. And a special thank you to everyone who stopped by to leave a donation or just stopped in for a cuddle.
As Christmas rapidly approaches I am trying to juggle last-minute reading and checking off items on my enormous To Do list. So far I have baked two batches of cookies, ordered a few gifts, and made a trip to Barnes & Noble for my nephews. Oh! and I bought a ton of fancy cheese. I got lucky with my assignments. Last week I discovered that short stories, novellas, graphic novels and audio books are the way to go right now. Novels just slow me down!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
- The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin. This edition is a reprint of a novella originally published in 1980 and is set in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire. This little novella tells the story of a girl and the legendary Ice Dragon who befriends her.
- The Witch Must Burn by Danielle Paige. This digital novella is the second prequel to Dorothy Must Die. In this one readers learn more about Glinda and Jellia Jam. One is not as good as she claims and the other learns that she an important role to play in the saving of Oz.
- Spoiled Brats by Simon Rich. This collection of short stories all examine the theme of parents and the spoiled brats who love them. Dark, off-beat and irreverent as well as laugh-out-loud hilarious.
- Fables, vol. 20: Camelot by Bill Willingham. It is clear that this series is winding down, and Camelot is setting the stage for a big finish.
