Awesome Cat Secret Place


Dad's Book of Awesome Science Experiments by Mike Adamick.  Could I just give the book to my kids and let them go at it? Because I still need to reseal the driveway, add insulation to the attic, and figure out a cheap way to put in new windows.  Those old windows really have to go. I also need to get some quick mix concrete and fix the crumbled corners on the stairs by the back door.  The old railing base was set into the concrete and the ice cracked those corners away.

Complete Cat Care consultant Alison Logan.  Couldn't I give the book to my kids and let them go at it?  It's about time they help take care of those cat things. Rather than the way they just carry them around and get clawed.  Or, using the cats as excuse to come out of their bedrooms at night and not go to bed.

Large Print

All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner.  Couldn't I just give this book to my kids and let them make up smarmy, internet comments?

Above by Isla Morley.  What smarmy things would they say about the books?

Driving With the Top Down by Beth Harbison.  I'm not sure.

Safe Keeping by Barbara Taylor Sissel.  I have some theories.

Deserves to Die by Lisa Jackson.  "Fart, fart, fart."

Home Fires by Lois Greiman. That's one likely thing they would say.

Audiobooks on CD

Personal by Lee Child.  13 hours on 10 CDs.  "Get a bunch of TNT and then put it in the building and BOOM!"

The Secret Place by Tana Fench.  20.5 hours on 16 CDs.  It is best my kids do not run the blog.
