On Sunday, many of you will be watching to see whether the Seattle Seahawks can top the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl. Even the Seattle and Denver libraries are duking it out on Twitter in the #ReadingBowl! (Tweet what you're reading with the hashtags #ReadingBowl and #SEAReads or #DENreads to play along.)
But some of us don't care about sports. We only care about cute things and have finally been rewarded with THE KITTEN BOWL!!!
Airing at 12:00 noon/11am Central on the Hallmark Channel, the Kitten Bowl has four adorably furry teams competing on an obstacle course of hurdles, tunnels, hoops, jumps, weave poles, lasers, lures and toys on strings!
Check out the lineup and pick your favorite kitten now! We're loving Feline Manning, Troy Paw-Lamalau, Ferrell Owens, and Catnip. Plus, there's a live Kitten Cam feed on the website so you don't have to miss a minute of feline fun! Meow.
Best of all, each kitten is guaranteed to be adopted into a loving home (no, we didn't adopt ALL of them, as much as we'd like to...).
Enjoy! And if you need more cuteness, there's always that other bowl game...
Our weekend involved authors & kittens.
What more is there to life, really?
Talia attended local bookstore events for Louise Penny (HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN) and Wilton Barnhardt (LOOKAWAY, LOOKAWAY) at Flyleaf Books and McIntyre's Books. All were smash hits as you can see from the standing room only pictures.
Meanwhile, Anne hit the Rockaways and found kittens living under the boardwalk. She (of course) wanted to take all seven of them home that instant! Fear not! a neighborhood kitten wrangler is keeping an eye on them. Phew!
We hope your week is off to a good start!
We interrupt your Tuesday afternoon coffee break for a very important introduction.
Librarians, meet Siete, the cat with seven toes... on EACH of her front paws!
She's a Hemingway (polydactyl) cat, an evolutionary masterpiece, and the cutest little grocery bag spelunker EVER.
She lives with Michelle Campbell from our children's school and library marketing department. She has also been invited to live in our hearts forever. [...]
Welcome to the Macmillan Library blog! We're so glad you were intrigued enough by our goofy faces to click through and see what we're all about (if you didn't make it here via Unshelved, see the adorable ad that Bill made here).
We'll kick off introductions by letting you in on the things we secretly love the most. Talia, for one, goes crazy for mini-cupcakes, costume fairy wings, and her two sassy cats. And Ali is a sucker for sweaters with foxes on them, puppies in top hats, and American macaroons.
When it comes to our reading preferences, Talia is all about the psychological thrillers—the gorier the better—whereas Ali opts for the epic sci-fi and fantasy stories—the more spaceships the better. Both of us are suckers for anything with a cute animal on the cover.
But that's not all we read. We're here specifically to chat with you about all of the great Adult books coming from Macmillan's publishers (including St. Martin’s Press, Henry Holt, Tor/Forge, Minotaur, Picador, and Farrar, Straus & Giroux) as well as our distributed publishers. Please feel free to ask us questions!
And for the Sherrilyn Kenyon fans who are quick on the draw:
We have 10 extra galleys of Sherrilyn Kenyon's TIME UNTIME, the latest book in the Dark-Hunter series. Just send an e-mail to Library-at-MacmillanUSA.com with your name, the library you work for, and the full mailing address where you would like to receive the galley.
If you're new, introduce yourselves in the comment section below or come chat with us on Twitter (@MacmillanLib)! We look forward to getting to know you.
All the best!
Talia & Ali
