Bookmarks giveaway!

A little deviation from my normal blogging to introduce our new kitten! Adopted from the local humane society this last weekend- and our house has been very busy since. Having a small kitten reminds me a lot of having a baby in the house- but she's so cute and delightful. We call her Numa. It's hard for me to get a good photo of her because she's very quick- and blends in with our awful gray carpet. I've hardly had time to read, or blog- sorry if I don't respond to or leave as many comments as usual...

Next item: a giveaway! I was going to do a book this week, but then while gathering books at the local thrift shop found this little treasure. It's a small volume of removable bookmarks with bookish quotes on them. They're for putting in books you lend out- each one has two tags on the top, one to remind a borrower whose book it is, and the other to keep so you remember who you lent it to. Personally, I rarely loan out my books, but I thought someone else might like to have this. Sorry, two of the bookmarks have been used- but all the rest are free! To someone who leaves their name in the comments here- the winner will be drawn next tuesday, 5/26.

Your kitten is so cute! I adopted three black-and-white kittens about 2 years ago from the Houston SPCA (Poe, Jasper and Carmen,) and I'm so glad I did. They are wonderful little cats :)

Please enter my name in your give away.

Thanks!

Hi Numa!! Can't wait to learn more about her. :) No need to enter me--I've got my very own book, but since I lend out so few books (because I never get them back!!!), I haven't used too many bookmarks either.

I'm conflicted about cats... but I have to admit, that one is adorable.

Your new kitten is adorable and Numa is a terrific name! She looks like she will have some beautiful stripes when she's full-grown.

What a cute kitten! They are always so much fun to watch. And I am glad you were able to rescue this one and give her a good home.
