Stacking the Shelves [278]

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
If you want to find out more about Stacking The Shelves, please visit the official launch page!
EnregistrerMy rather short stack is over at Reading Reality, along with an equally brief report on just how far this week has gone down the tubes.

We are moving this weekend, quite possibly as you read this. And that's disruptive enough.

But on Thursday we lost our Clown Princess, 17 1/2 year old Mellie-cat. We've had her since the day she was born, and we are heartbroken. We miss her, and so does Freddie-cat, who is very confused about where his Aunty-Mellie has gone and why she isn't there to order him around. She'll be missed.

Everyone has things they do to deal with grief and stress. I read. It helps me slip away just a bit, for just a little while. When I come back to reality, whatever is wrong is just a bit further away. I got a couple of really good books this week to help with that.

Beast (Galactic Gladiators #7) by Anna Hackett

The Women of Baker Street (Mrs. Hudson and Mary Watson #2) by Michelle Birkby

Her house full of books also contains her husband, also in the library biz, and two cats who really run the place.

  8. That is so sad, truly sorry about your loss. But 17 and a half is a great age for a cat. I'm happy that she could share all these years with your family.

  9. Sorry to hear of your cat. Hope the rest of the move goes well.
