Catching UP!

Books that went to press, or back to press this week:

IRIS DESTINY by Joseph Daniel Carr. 
   To almost everyone Colin Craft is an average kid in the 9th grade. But secretly, he is the crime fighting “Newspaper Myth,” a phenomena most people think is a publicity stunt. Few believe he can really read minds, create ice, manipulate flame, and even teleport objects with his mind. While the Myth is discounted by the public, one man knows the truth...a crooked cop named Allen Crestmere identifies him and becomes his first real enemy, fighting him not as a human, but with the same supernatural powers.

 BOOTS AND THE BRANCH BOYS, by Marjorie K. Doughty.
   Eleanor Hadley, better known as “Boots,” welcomes the “Branch Boys,” veterans from her Maryland home town, back from WW II. All of them have changed and many use alcohol to dull the pain from the devastation they’ve experienced. She falls in love with one, but thinks that marriage to him might be unwise.

Gallleys that went out, are still out, or went back out this week:

PAYBACK: Kathy Sear and Greg Hawkins Series, Vol. 5, by  Michael Field

Jack's News!

  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!

 Author Nunez will be at Downtown Salisbury tonight. (Friday evening.)  He is there most weeks with copies of his very popular new book Pirates of the Eastern Shore and will have copies of most of his other titles, too.

The Bloc is invited to Sharptown Heritage day September 19 and Nanticoke River Jamboree at Handsell . More on these two events later.

Been a miserable week around here this week, for your favorite bookstore cat, I have to say. Their vet reports that Arline's ulcer has been bleeding again. Last time that happened she wound up in hospital for days. No hospital this time if she follows orders:  rest more, take a bunch of shots, and get plenty of sleep. 

She grumps that she "can't think straight!" Roger finds that no surprise. As far as I can see sleep is all she DOES do. Whenever I try to wake her up to get my treats, she just pulls the covers over her face and says, "Go away, Jack!" 

They are Grumpy! GRUMpy! GRUMPY!

Both Roger and Arline have have summer colds. Fortunately, Cats don't catch cold, but with all the coughing, sneezing, and grumbling back and forth, we cats have had hard work to get any notice at all.  Is that any way to treat your feline persons?

Please don't forget to let me know 
what you are all up to! 

Just send a message with 

 "News for Jack" 

in the subject line, and

I'll make sure it shows up right here.
