February is almost gone, American politics are moving at warp speed, and I’m getting older by the second, which are coming at me a lot faster than they did when I was twenty.  Time to slow down with a good book.  What did you read this week?

Today is World Pangolin Day.

Fun pangolin facts:

• Pangolins are the only mammals that are covered in scales, which are 20 percent of their total body weight.

• Pangolins eat about seventy million ants a year, which they slurp up with their sticky tongues which are longer than their bodies and attached near the pelvis and last pair of ribs..

• Baby Pangolins ride on their mother’s back and tail.

As animals go, they’re extremely laid back and very cool.

Less fun fact: 
Pangolins the most trafficked animal in the world, possibly because their idea of a good defense is rolling into a ball which makes them easy to pick up.  And estimated ten thousand pangolins are poached each year, which is why they’re endangered. (Damn it, do we have to destroy everything that is good and true in the world?)

Go here to Adopt a Pangolin (no, you can’t keep him) or do one of these things or any of these things.

I just realized that today is Valentine’s Day (candy sale tomorrow, folks) so I’m putting up Good Book Thursday eight hours early so we can talk about romance novels we love and great romantic subplots and whatever else bookish you want to talk about.  Happy Valentine’s Day, Argh People!

February is Creative Romance Month.

Yeah, there are a lot of ways to go with that.  Creative writing, creative ways to express love, creative . . . 

Googling for this one was odd.

 

and my personal favorite:

And for Kelly’s husband’s proposed book:
