Hello, everyone! I’m your newest cohost, Anastasia of Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog! This is my first time cohosting anything and I’m very excited. When I was prepping for my posts I realized I needed at least two things: interesting Youtube videos and lolcat pictures. So here’s a lolcat picture:

Did it cheer you up? More importantly, I know that hour 9 is generally when the near-midpoint lag starts to set in. Are you all feeling energized? Have you been taking breaks to refresh and refuel?

Mini-Challenges
Terri of BrownGirl BookSpeak is hosting the In Other Words mini-challenge this hour. Participants have to guess the book title given to them in CODE. Well. It’s sort of a code– go check out the post to see what I mean, and you could win a book of your choice from The Book Depository!

Yay, the first prize I get to pick myself! It’s random commenter of the hour, Erin! Congratulations! Pick a prize from the prize list and email your choice to Vasilly at 1330vblog at gmail.

  2. Welcome, Anastasia! I love the pic. Hour 9 is when I am finally going to get energize and move forward. I had a little bit of a slow start for the last 8 hours. I had the intention, but everyone around me wanted attention. Now is my time to shine :-0

  3. LOL-cats for the win!

    My brain felt a little tired when I finished my book and so took a couple of hours off not only to make and eat dinner but also just to zone out and passively consume some telly.

    I’ve started a new book now.
