Paper books, plastic discs and kittehs

Paper books, plastic discs, eCopies and Kittehs Once upon a time a pissing contest – who has the biggest pile of paper books – started on Twitter. Someone who will not be named started it with this tweet: A hasty shot of the art @Tezzabold (I could pretend that my furniture isn't covered with piles of

It’s been a month. Wha-at?! I’ve been doing assignments for university, gettin’ me some book learnin’ so I knows how to write. Here is the list of loot received in the past month. If I’ve missed anything – I suspect I’ve forgotten an electronic book or two – message me and I’ll add them in.

This items received post is proudly presented by guest kitteh Beamo. Beamo is a rescue kitteh. Pregnant when fetched from the pound, her kittens were kept by her rescue home.

Items received contents list I’ve had a bit of a break over summer so I’m behind in posting Items Received. The contents list is here with shortcuts to the books that pique your interest.

The Pikachus are taking over and Smokey is not impressed

Yesterday the minion took Smokey to the vet. Today Smokey is thoroughly traumatised, spending far more time than usual nestled in between the stacks of books in the ‘office’. To add insult to injury, today the Pikachus are breeding. What can I say? It’s CHRISTMAS. While Smokey was minding her own business sitting on the

‘Run, Smokey, Run!’ cry Edgar & Pikachu, rolling on items received

[giggles] Edgar: Did you see that? Pikachu: LOOK AT HER RUN! Edgar: RUN, SMOKEY, RUN! [Edgar falls off his perch, the slender anthology Dangerous Women, as only a really clumsy cat can.] Edgar: Oops. [snort, chortle, ROLLS ON FLOOR LAUGHING] Pikachu: [wipes eyes] Oooooh, oooooh, ooooh, so funny… I love how she just got started,

When the cat’s away, the mouse and batcat come out to play

Smokey is hiding. I suspect she’s miffed because I wasn’t paying her enough attention and THEN I WENT TO THE GYM. Which meant she was left at home, alone, with no-one to pet her and cuddle her. I try to post items received at least once a fortnight. Due to end-of-semester madness, being side-tracked by

Ninja photographer avoids cat fight over books received

Pikachu  has come to live with us, thanks to Rebecca Fleming. HarperCollins and Rebecca must have been in league because Pikachu and the pictured colour-coordinated trilogy arrived the same day. Smokey and Edgar Allan Purr don’t seem to have noticed Pikachu (yet), probably because of all the piles of recently-received books on the dining table,

Dark Matter’s ‘recently received’ pile exposed

It’s that time of year when people other than publishers and authors give me epic lewt not to be included in the Dark Matter ‘recently received’ pile. This is the birthday lewt. Well, akshully, there are a couple of things there that might be review items recently received – like Terror of the Zygons, Steelheart
