April to June were all average reading months for me, quantity-wise, but I read some fantastic books.

71. The Keeper of Secrets - Julie Thomas
Links lead to my reviews, except for The Illusion of Separateness by the ever-awesome Simon Van Booy, which I haven't yet given a full review (the link leads to my initial thoughts). I have just finished rereading The Illusion of Separateness. This time I took notes and drew arrows to show how the characters were connected -- not that I needed to, for the sake of reviewing, but I thought it would be fun to see the connections drawn out. A full review should appear, soon.
Random.org chose Chris as the winner of the Dr. Who book Festival of Death. Congratulations, Chris! I've sent your address to Lisa at TLC Tours to forward to the publisher.
And, about that kitten:
I think everybody I know is going to be steamed if we're not able to keep this little gal, if only because they're enjoying the cute kitty photos. She is awfully cute and photogenic; I can't deny it.
However, so far introducing her to the other kitties is not going well at all. I'm keeping her in her own room, hoping that backing away from exposing cats to kitten for a bit will help. Prissy has a lot of room to play, plenty of toys, a West Elm sofa to sleep on and a window, along with her litterbox, water and food. But, she gets lonely, poor thing, and when I go to play with her or read near her to keep her company, the other cats wail outside the door. I'm going to buy some of the calming spray that I used when we introduced Isabel to Fiona to see if that will help with the spitting, hissing freakouts we're having when they're exposed. Wish me luck!
