Saturday late night mews, regal and resolute Big Cat Beauties... warm, very windy and overcast today on the tame prairie, so this Big Cat got some stuff done outside... and, wow, the roses survived the frigid temps far better than the Kougaress had imagined, so she added layers of compost and leaves to bed them down for winter... anyhoo, she so wishes she had more time to actually write.
Claws to the ready, darling kittens, a superstorm of events is likely to hit this coming week, and the week after. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and remember this Big Cat loves ya!

Brains Absorb More Information From Real Books Than From E-Books
Monday, November 17, 2014
Science has great news for bibliophiles who can’t quite get the same buzz from downloading an e-book onto their Kindle as they do from the purchase of a good old-fashioned paper novel.
Aside from the fact that Kindle removes the sensory experience of book-ownership - you can’t touch, flick through, even smell a Kindle book - a recent study has suggested that readers who attempt to absorb information from an e-book are less likely to remember facts that those who read the same information from the printed page.
The study, lead by Anne Mangen of Norway's Stavanger University, concluded that "the haptic and tactile feedback of a Kindle does not provide the same support for mental reconstruction of a story as a print pocket book does."
