What’s The Eight-Year-Old reading this week?


Oct30
Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old reads up on cat (and snake) care. 

A sampling of this week’s books:

Hmm…. what could possibly be on The Eight-Year-Old’s mind?

The Eight-Year-Old has been quite concerned by news that her cousin’s cat has been peeing unrestrainedly all over their house. This is not approved cat behavior, and has The Eight-Year-Old mulling over potential causes. That explains why the ASPCA Cat Care Manual is sitting on her desk. Also, very likely Cranky Paws.

But The Python Problem?  We are so not getting a snake. Daddyo was very clear about that. That discarded snake-skin her Grandpa Howell sent her is as close as The Eight-Year-Old will ever be to having an actual snake in the house. And she’ll only get to keep that as long as she keeps it squirreled away where Mommyo won’t find it.

The Eight-Year-Old, you’re on notice. Or should I say, Grandpa Howell, you’re on notice. No more snake skins, dude. We’re at quota.

In the news:

Looking back over the article list this week, I’m a little appalled by how much time I spent reading the Huffington Post archives with The Eight-Year-Old.

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
