I don’t know if I’ll be posting Really Random Tuesday posts on a regular basis, but it fit with my mood and needs today!

The Impostor's Daughter by Laurie SandellTwo of the winners I picked for my giveaway of The Impostor’s Daughter: A True Memoir by Laurie Sandell had already won copies of the book on other blogs, so I’ve picked two new winners: Aik at The Bookaholics and Kailia Sage at Reading the Best of the Best. Congrats! I hope you enjoy the book.

Don’t forget to also enter my two-year blogiversary giveaway! You can pick a book of your choice from any of the books mentioned on my blog (except in the “similar covers” posts). Note that a few people have requested books that I’ve never mentioned here—if you are one of them, please enter again with a new pick. I’ll select two winners at random on August 25.

As part of this giveaway, I asked for feedback about my blog. Amy at The House of the Seven Tails responded with this comment:
“My only other suggestion/request, which you will understand based on the look of my blog, is an occasional picture or post of the adorable kitty on your shoulder in your profile photo! I have a soft spot for the furry felines!”
I’m only too happy to oblige, with a few pics of Cairo hanging out in one of my bookcases. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

  1. I love the photos of your cat in the bookcase. You are the first one to do this meme. THANK YOU!

    I added red border to the Really Random Tuesday button, so if you want to stop by and copy the new one, please feel free to do so. Again, thanks for participating!

  2. Oh wow, those pictures are so adorable! Cairo, guardian of the books! I agree with Amy's recommendation, more pictures of the fluffy one is not a bad idea at all ;)

    Also, I'm impressed by how neat your bookshelf is, with the books all nicely placed like that. I like it!

  3. Emmy is partial to Sherri Tepper's books too!

  4. I love the name Cairo! Does he ever knock the books of the shelves?

  5. I love your cat's name! And those pictures are priceless.

  6. Very cute kitty in the bookshelf pics! I have a cat that used to do that, but he's way too big now to fit.

  7. Love the bookshelves and the kitty is too cute.

  8. Ha! I love that picture of your cat behind the books on your shelf. What is it with cats and books? They just go so perfectly together.

  9. heehee, love the kitty behind the books! :D

  10. That is an amazing photo of Cairo peeking out from behind the bookshelf! It cracks me up the places cats get into..they love to have fun!

    It looks to me like Cairo is a fan of books especially SF! Smart kitty!

    Thank you for the pictures, I'm so happy you posted them!

  11. Cute! I try to keep my kitty out of the library as much as possible. I know she'd love to lounge on the shelves but I have enough to dust without worrying about cat hair!

  12. Ok I'm am such a lover of animal pictures. Cairo is the cutest how special. You must squeeze him to death. Mine has never hit my bookshelves, but one of them loves to read on top of an open book...cute but annoying.

  13. It took me a second to see him! How did he get up there without toppling all your books????

  14. Cairo is positively adorable amongst the books!
