Galleys that went out or went out again this week:
The Kid Who Wasn't There, by C. M. Albrecht
Jonas gets in pretty deep with a powerful talk show hostess, a mobster and art dealers and a very big Navajo, not to mention a lot of women who try to make him forget he's a happily married man with two children at home, and his troubles extend to home too. Life can be tough!
WENDELL & TYLER: WE'RE OFF! by James Kincaid
Even their guidebooks – Worst Places to Eat,Wackiest Roadside Attractions, and Don’t Go Here! – offer no guidance. These two 16-year-olds are off on a summer-long road trip, from Los Angeles to Atlanta, without any clear idea what they are doing, what they might run into, what they might discover.
TOBY MARTIN: PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR, Toby Martin Series, Vol 6. by Barbara Grengs.
Toby Martin is back with the last of the series, and this time she is investigating the disappearance of her "Pops" who went to the store when she was small, and never came back.
Winner of the Stonewall Society's 2002 Pride in the Arts Literary Award in the Whodunit Category!
MINISTER'S ESCAPADES, Vol. 2 by Celine Rose Mariotti
Rev. Castle is back in another cozy mystery.
REAP THE WHIRLWIND: Killian Kendall Mystery Series, Vol. 2, by Josh Aterovis. Suicide, or murder? That's the question in the second Killian Kendall mystery. Will Smith suspects murder when an old childhood pal drowns, and asks his friend Killian for help in solving the mystery.

No real gossip this week.
I have no complaints except that Arline has been late with the food ever since the time changed. I don't get it with humans. Always changing what's been working for months. I have my Own System. If the birds are singing outside the window, the sun doesn't have to be up, it's time to ask for treats. When the sun is shining onto Our Table on the back porch it's time to fill the Food Dishes. How complicated is that?
ALSO I've told Roger and TOLD HIM that my little sister, Spunky, is eating out of MY dish again. Am I not top cat around here? What part of "ROWFF!" does he not understand? He can play the guitar all he wants, I'm not going to sing today!
Please don't forget my

Here's the address again, if any of you are interested in helping out with new or gently used K to 8th Grade books. These kids really do love to read:
