You are probably as shocked as I am. Seriously.
The only “big person” book I ever get to read is the Bible and it’s a pretty big deal to get time to do that.
I first heard about Kathy Reichs way back before we had Doodlebug. I was commuting four hours every day to get to and from work. The place I worked process undeliverable mail and would often end up with books on tape from book clubs. They always donated it to the local library. While I was pregnant, I was having a hard time staying awake on the long drive so one of the shift managers used to let me borrow the books before they were donated. (I realize this was wrong. It did save my life though.)
I fell in love with Ms. Reichs books right away.
When the tv series “Bones” began, I was ecstatic! Finally I could get a little taste of one of my favorite authors! See, once I had Doodlebug I never seemed to have time to actually read anything.
Ok, I read Dr. Seuss but that is NOT the same thing. I know moms who fit reading into their day but I just could not. Until now.
Hubby purchased a Kindle for me a few weeks ago and the first book I downloaded was “206 Bones” by Kathy Reichs. I love reading on my Kindle and I loved this book. I loved that it gave hubby and I something new to talk about as we now sit and discuss the book vs. the tv show.
When I ask my friends for author references they rarely mention her name, which makes me sad. Ya’ll are seriously missing out on some good stuff! Who is your favorite author? When was the last time you finished a “big person” book?
