    Hi! I’m glad I found your blog! I was worried about the people and cats of Tashirojima also and was glad to hear the island survived the earthquake/tsunami with less severe damage than thought! You and I both love cats-I worked in a bookstore in the early 90s and rescued my little housemates when my sister and I moved in 1999.

    Oops! I used my cat Tuxi’s name when she “wrote” to her friends on the Cats Working blog and forgot to put my name back! Anyway, I have a trip to Cat Island on my Bucket List when the people there get resettled and back to normalcy. Pictures before the quake look absolutely wonderful and the blue water beautiful. I’m hoping the radiation now doesn’t cause problems for the fishing industry there.

    Dani, So great to ‘meet’ you. We share a passion for books, cats, second-hand acquisitions and genealogy (website http://www.socialhistory101.com and blog http://www.socialhistory101.info). I’ve read a few of your books reviews just now and love how you express yourself. I’m forwarding the blog address to my sister-in-law (who shares the first three of our passions) and is a cash-poor fashionista like you. She’ll love it! Thanks for sharing your conjoined heart and brain.

    I like the post about things found in books. I use to work at a used bookstore and we found money in the books all the time. Once we found a few hundred dollars in a Harry Potter book. The owners mother quickly returned to claim the money when her son contacted her. I still to this day have bills from the UK, India, and Japan that I have found in other books. I also found this (I am vegan btw, so it is weird that I kept it) a hand painted image of 4 people playing instruments on dry skin of some animal.

    I also have a picture of a woman who sold us books monthly for years. One day her husband came in with 10 boxes of books to sell. His wife passed away. I found a beautiful image of her in one of those books weeks later as I was pricing and shelving them.

    Looking forward to more literary chirps from the cricket.

  8. Hi there! I’ve written a feminist book with a cat in it and I’m wondering if you’re interested in taking a look at it? I love this site!

  9. Dani Alexis says:

    I would, and thank you! Email me at thebookcricket@gmail.com for my mailing address or with digital copy instructions if you’ve gone that route. 🙂

    I just posted on eBay a 1917 Girl Scout Handbook, I believe the 5th edition because it doesn’t yet have the 30 cent price on the cover. If you are interested, just go to ebay and type in Rare 1917 Girl Scout Handbook and it will appear. Thanks. Dave, Indianapolis

    The website sets you up with an online baby journal, free family blog, and free pregnancy blog.
    One of the first resources I found for free blog headers was
    on Smashing Magazine, one can’t miss it.

    On a regular basis, write an article that is related to your
    blog topic and submit it to the free article directories
    for other websites and blogs to use. Their software allows article creators to input slightly different versions of articles so that publishers can post unique,
    remixed versions of the original text.
