What's so amusing?


Seven Little Tigers

Seven little tigers jumping on the bed, one fell off and lost her head.

I know. I know. I've lost my head.

That rhyme has been running through my mind since my shipment of flash drives for the Read an E-Book Week great pocket library giveaway arrived. I hear these little girl, sing-song voices in my head and it makes me smile. If I were young enough to jump on the bed without damage to the ceiling, the bed, or me, I'd be there. I'm so excited about next week.

I know this is Carry-on Tuesday and encouraging each other is what we do, but I'm so thrilled to be promoting Read an E-Book week and the release of The Tiger's Tale that I'm sharing the love with whomever wanders by. If you're in the comments of this post you'll be entered to win a pocket library. Despite the cute package and the nursery rhyme, this isn't a children's library.

The prompt for this week's Carry on Tuesday:

This week our prompt is the opening of Elizabeth Peter’s 1999 book The Falcon at the Portals
What is it you find so amusing, dear?
