Just as predicted, the clouds are hanging low in the sky today. It will not deter me from running my errands this morning, however. On our must-do-today list is a visit to the AAA office and where I want to look into cost estimate for the trip we are planning during late summer. I really just want the free travel book they offer, listing all the hotels and restaurants. Maybe I can talk Anjin into swinging by Borders while we are in the neighborhood . . .
With Buy a Friend a Book Week right around the corner, I decided to go through my stacks of books I am looking to pass on. Several jumped out at me as possible books to give away here at Musings of a Bookish Kitty. One of the books has two little cat teeth holes throughout several pages in the center. The marks are tiny but noticeable. I wonder if anyone would want that book, knowing it has my cat's blessing? I am still trying to decide when to hold the drawings. Draw it out over months, have one a week over the next month, or try and fit them as many as possible in next week since it is officially Buy a Friend a Book Week? Decisions, decisions.
Time to get dressed and face the day. I hope you all are having a good weekend so far.
I wouldn't worry about cat bites! Maybe just let people know in the giveaway, and then they can decide?ReplyDelete
I'll have to do some stuff for BAFAB too-thanks for reminding me. :)
As I sit here with my little orange Oscar cat on my lap, I think I would actually prefer a book with a cat bite mark - makes me feel at home.ReplyDelete
I think any cat lover would feel honored to have your cat nibbled book!ReplyDelete
A new cat came to live with us today (maybe.) Just thought I would add that.
Oh ... so books aren't supposed to have cat bites??? :-)ReplyDelete
I'd welcome a book with cat teeth marks :) Some of mine have some too.ReplyDelete
This will be my first time celebrating BAFABW, and I'm looking forward to it!
A little cat "nip" adds personality!ReplyDelete
Oh, I like jenclair's comment! A little cat "nip" indeed. You might just ask - I know I don't care much about the condition of a book - barring the use of a piece of bacon as a bookmark... but some folks do like their books pristine.ReplyDelete
Buy A Friend A Book Week? I'm not sure how I feel about that one.
Eva - I think I settled on how I'm going to give away some of these books. I'll be sure and let people know about the cat bites.ReplyDelete
Andi - What's strange is that he bit the book in a really odd place. Usually he goes for the corners. At least I'm not looking to give away the book my dog tried to eat. I doubt anyone would be interested in a book with a big chunk missing. Haha
Megan - It would be like a a "From my cat to yours" type thing. ;-)
A new cat! Oh! I hope it works out. I wish I could get another cat, but my dog and cat are all we can manage right now.
Bridget - You mean, my books aren't the only ones? I'm relieved to hear that. :-)
Nymeth - I guess it's good that the books don't bite them back.
I'm so glad you are celebrating BAFABW too!
Jenclair - That's so cute! Haha
Carrie K - Can you imagine? Bacon as a bookmark. Ew! I think I'll make it known that all the books in my giveaway are used so there aren't any surprises. They're all in good condition, I think, but not everyone's definition of good is the same as mine.
I wouldn't mind it at all, Wendy! As Jenclair puts it, it definitely adds personality to the book! ;PReplyDelete
Melody - I had forgotten all about the teeth marks until I was flipping through the book yesterday. Now hopefully someone will actually want to read the book!ReplyDelete
As I never had a cat, I might as well have the teeth marks! Wot say?!ReplyDelete
Books aren't supposed to have bite marks in them? Madison will be so disappointed! :)ReplyDelete
Merlin has a thing about chewing books so I have to be really careful with mine! I am sure no one will mind if it has cat markings on it, like you say it could be the cats blessing.ReplyDelete
Gautami - LOL It will almost be like having a cat--at least through those few pages.ReplyDelete
Dynamic Uno - It's good my books aren't the only ones! Haha
Rhinoa - My cat doesn't usually chew the books. He much prefers to rub his head all over them or scratch his nose on a corner (which is probably not too pleasant to some people either--haha). This time he decided to bite. I wonder how the book tasted . . .
Buy a friend a book week? I have never heard of that before, but love it!! Cat marks should carry no worry - it is the story between the covers that matters the most, lol!ReplyDelete
Buy a Friend a Book Week is a great concept, isn't it? I'm noticing that contests are already popping up for free book giveaways.ReplyDelete
And you are right--it's content that matters most. :-)
