Read-a-Thon: Update


Well, this day hasn't gone the way I planned.

After an extended break for lunch and a little book shopping, I returned and read two short stories in The New Weird and The New York Stories of Edith Wharton. However, yesterday my cat scratched me (yes, again) and I had to take another break to go to the hospital to get the scratches checked out, and get some antibiotics. But I'm home now, and recommencing the read-a-thon.

I'll update again in a few hours. Happy reading!

The scratches sound a little painful. Hope everything's okay. Good luck with your reading.

My cat scratches me all the time. How do I know when I need to get them checked out?

Happy reading!

Lenore- when they're red, inflamed, painful, itchy and/or you have a fever. and if you're just not sure! :-)

In a Story Book

At night when sunshine goes away,
And it's too dark for me to play,
I like to come inside, and look
For new friends in a story book.

Hope you feel better soon. I see it didn't take you long to start buying books again. LOL I just added a stack of my own. Check out my blog and tell me if you have read any of the. I'm asking for opinions.

Hmmm. Cat scratch fever, eh? I guess my kittehs scratches have been harmless.
