Lots of Books

My owner's OtherHalf had to travel to Amsterdam for an expo and because we couldn't come with him he bought us a bookish present. Shiver is about werewolves and I've heard many good things about it, so I'm looking forward to reading it.

Today a huge package was delivered.
I tried to see who it was from, but I couldn't figure it out. Time to open it.

There was a bag inside that was from the RT Booklovers Convention. Hmmm... I was starting to suspect who the sender of this package could be.

Look at all the goodies that were inside the bag!
Lots of books, trading cards and other fun stuff!

And the little piggy confirmed my suspicions!
This amazing package was send to me by my friends Laura and Sparky. They collected all these goodies for me at the convention.

Laura and Sparky:
Thanks! You are awesome. *hugs*

Spam, Spam, Beautiful Bookish Spam

Today there were two books in our mail!

I received Hell Fire from Stella.
I was having trouble getting hold of this book myself, but Stella not only found it, she ordered it for me as well.

Thank you Stella!

The other book in our mail was for Voodoo Bride.
Gini send her a translated and signed copy of 'Spirit of the Mist' by Janeen O'Kerry. What a cool surprise.

Thank you Gini and Janeen!

Wild Times at Casa McPig

Not so much!

I'm pretty bored actually.
If it wasn't for the grocery goodies and me winning books all the time I wouldn't even have anything to show you.

My owner did book a city trip though, but it will be a few months before we get to go.
Until then I keep bugging her to do something fun.

Grocery Fun and Awesome Mail

Things have been quiet around here these last few days, but I did get more fun grocery goodies at the grocery store.

And today there was awesome mail:

We won these books over at Smexy Books.
Two of them seem like perfect reads for Voodoo Bride, while the other two will be perfect for me.

And look at the awesome artwork I received!
My owner won this trading card artwork (which is made especially for us!)in a giveaway Allison Pang held over at Jeffe's blog. We got to pick a scene from one of Allison's books and Aimo made it for us.

It's a scene from A Brush of Darkness and it's the first time Brystion and Abby meet. Isn't it beautiful!?

Thanks everyone for all this awesomeness!

I got mail from Beanie yesterday.
He discovered that my grandfather posed for Picasso and send me a card of the sketch my grandfather posed for.
Can you spot my grandfather?

Thanks Beanie!

Look what I got this week!
Our grocery store is giving toy grocery items with your normal groceries and they're just the right size for me.

McPig 3D

This evening my owner took me to the cinema to see Titanic 3D, because I had to do some research for a post about Titanic movies on my review blog.

We got a plastic bag that had Real D 3D written on it.

It had 3D glasses inside!

My owner and me shared the glasses so we both got to see some parts of the movie in 3D.

I will blog about Titanic 3D and other Titanic movies on my review blog this weekend.

Easter Brunch

Yesterday we prepared a brunch to celebrate Easter.
First we cooked some eggs.

We also had Matzes with cheese.

And I got to use my purple chicken egg holder!

Oh! So that's what the bunnies are for.
They can sit on the eggs to keep them warm.

I tried if the bunnies could also be used as a hat, but I think they're a bit too unpractical for that.


A perfect Easter brunch.

Easter Bunny and a Lunartik

I got a chocolate Easter bunny at work this Friday!
It's almost twice as big as I am.

And yesterday a friend brought a present for my owner:
A Lunartik in a teacup.
Isn't he cool!? He's purple so he's going to live in the bookcase in my owner's Milka room.

Have a great Easter everyone!

Easter is Approaching

Today we got out the chickens and bunnies...

We decorated an Easter Branch...

And my loyal army of Easter Chicks are in place to defend the Easter Branch.
We're all set for Easter!

There was yet another book in my mail today.
A signed copy of Devil's Punch, the newest book by Ann Aguirre. She writes amazing books, so I'm very happy with this one.

Thanks Ann!

Bookish Mail

There was a cheery red package in my mail today.

It turned out to be a signed copy of Discount Armageddon that I had won over at the Qwillery. It sounds like a fun read, so i'm looking forward to reading it.

Thanks Qwill!
