It was an eventful weekend in the Literary Feline household, with soccer, a visit to a local pumpkin patch, and (finally!) putting up the trampoline Mouse's great aunt and uncle gave her this past summer. The weather was perfect--in the mid to high 80's. We spent a lot of time outdoors. How did you spend this past weekend?
Just Finished: Instead of catching up the television show, Scandal, this past Friday, I finished listening to Lionel Shriver's We Need to Talk About Kevin. It is one of those books I wished I had someone to talk to as soon as I finished it.
Last night, I finished reading An Illustrated Death by Judi Culbertson, a cozy-type mystery, about a book seller who finds herself tangled in her most recent clients' family secrets. I hadn't realized it was the second book in the series when I read it; not that it matters all that much, I suppose.
Currently Reading: After much back and forth, I finally settled on an urban fantasy novel: The Angel Stone, the third installment of Juliet Dark's The Fairwick Chronicles. I enjoyed the first two books immensely and so have high hopes for the latest.

From one of my recent reads, Litter of the Law by Rita Mae Brown, a cozy mystery for cat lovers:
Fair Haristeen, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and his wife, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen, loved to steal a Saturday and cruise the back roads of central Virginia. It reminded them of their courting days, back in high school, when Fair, bruised from Friday night's football game, would pick up Harry, dirty from the stable, and they'd drive around in his 1958 Chevy pickup. Now, over two decades later, Fair was at the wheel of their station wagon, Harry beside him, the pets in the back seat, as they road through the countryside.
