So, yesterday I posted about our Big Ginormous Book Sale at the Library. Apparently Blogger wasn't impressed, because it coughed it right up. So now my Book Sale post is gone Forever. I have asked AAB Christine to be helpful for a change and help me repost it.
She is only complying because she doesn't want to re-pack all of the Book Sale books on May 20th. (Something about having tiny, weak twig-arms that have a hard time hoisting anything heavier than a cat. Or a coffee cup.)
Here's all of what we've got For Sale:
We have James Patterson books and Nora Roberts books and books with Fabio on the cover. We have Disney VHS movies. We have books for kids of all sizes. We have puzzles and other miscellaneous. (We had to keep the "miscellaneous" stuff away from Ritchie so he doesn't try to stuff it in a drawer and label it.) We have paperbacks and hardcovers and books in large print and also magazines. These things are all available for the low, low price of a Donation!
AB Karen requested that I visit for a Special Photo Shoot. This is kind of like how they have a super-famous author come to do a luncheon--AB Karen wanted me to draw people in. That's what I do. It's one of my many duties as Boss Cat.
Before any Photo Shoot, though, I need a quick bath to freshen up. One must look one's best for the whole wide Internets.
Once I was all Handsomed up (which took hardly any time), I received some instructions from AB Karen:
See how Karen is talking and I am only kind of paying attention? That's pretty much how things work between us. Unless she mentions treats or tummy rubs or Catnip.
Plus, I already understand how to promote a love of reading! I love reading! Reading is an activity that can guarantee Attention for us cats. It's simple: When you see a human reading a book, go sit on the page that they are most interested in. (You can tell by the staring they do. Sometimes they even point at the page with their fingers.) When you sit on the reading page, they will stop what they're doing and exclaim that you are Handsome (or Beautiful) and Clever, and then they will pet you. And give treats.
For the Photo Shoot I decided to promote the Fiction Section:
See how I love Books?
If you love VHS movies and magazines and books with Fabio on the cover, be sure to stop by the TPL Book Sale. It will go on until May 20th, and is open during our usual business hours. (That means Monday & Friday 9-6, Tuesday through Thursday 9-8, and Saturday 10-4. If you come on a Sunday I can only gaze at you through the windows.)
This was my final move during the Book Sale Photo Shoot:
If I still had front toenails (which I don't, thanks to the Person Before Karen), that would have really gotten my staff motivated!
