ANNOUNCEMENT – Eleven-Year-Old Erik Is No Longer Reviewing Books

I have an announcement that may shock some of you. Eleven-year-old Erik will no longer be reviewing books.

Why?

BECAUSE TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY AND I AM 12!!!

Happy Birthday

  35. I am so sorry to see you go, Erik. Eleven-year-old-erik was a fun kid, but too quick to post most books. I concede. You Won! Now shoo, go away.

    “Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year” all rolled into one! And another “Happy Birthday!” Birthdays are too special to wrap up in another holiday. So consider yourself wrapped up.. See ya’ next year.

    • Mmf mff phm mmfmffmph *struggles* *types with nose* That’s not nice. How could you do this. I knew it! You’ve taken over my blog! But, hey, at least I won! Head’s up for 2014!!! πŸ˜†

      • I have taken over your blog? Why I would not do that twelve-year-old Erik. Why are you typing with your nose? That is a good way to get your keyboard snotty and there is nothing harder to use than a snotty keyboard. 😯

        Per your request, I have posted a picture of the real kitties from the Christmas Eve post. I notice you have not checked it out, yet it is for you. It is the Christmas post, but maybe you got a cool new Lego set, or a stop-motion camera, or maybe a top-of-the-line keyboard cleaner and are busy playing with your new toys. I understand. 😐

        One more thing. You have 110 comments, no, make that 111 comments for this post. That makes you a popular blogger. Was it necessary to pad the number? You wrote 55 comments, soon to be 56? Now, in all fairness . . . STOP IT! πŸ˜€

        Happy New Year!

      • I don’t see any real kitties on the Christmas Eve post… πŸ‘Ώ And you wrote (and I quote) “So consider yourself wrapped up.” So… You took over my blog while I was tied up… but fortunately I read a Harry Houdini book and I know how to get out of it! πŸ˜‰

  53. December babies are the best! My own daughter turned 12 three days before you did (21st). She had a few friends come over to play Kinect (Just Dance 2014) and they all watched Pitch Perfect together. Low-key but so much fun. Two of her friends slept over as well. My husband and I were exhausted at day’s end with the energy level of middle-schoolers. Whew! I’m sure you and your friends are the same with the inexhaustible energy! I’m sure you’ve had a fabulous birthday, Erik. Happy Happy Happy Birthday! I sent a greeting through your Facebook Page, I hope you got that one too. πŸ™‚
