I read a grown-up book! 206 Bones by Kathy Reichs

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?

    I like James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell and Steven King. I could keep going because the list of ppl I like to read are long. But those are the top 3 I like to read. I get to read for an hour every day when I go to the kid’s school and park out front waiting for school to get out. The last 3 books I read were James Petterson books but I am reading a J.D Robb book right now. Stephen King’s last book, Under The Dome was great. It was GIANT at almost 1200 pages but it kept me up late for a week trying to finish it. If I could have a week with no DH and no kids I would split my time between watching movies and reading ALL DAY. That’s all I would do. But that scenario will never happen. =/

    I started a book club for that precise reason-I hadn’t read anything other than a “how to parent” book in months! Even so, I dont always get to finish the book before the end of the month, LOL!, but at least its a start 🙂

    I’m so glad you got to run a book! I have two I’d like to sink into right now. Perhaps I should start one of them tonight! Love this layout of your blog by the way. Sorry it’s taken me so long to catch up!

    I used to be a huge Stephen King fan, owned almost all the books. I tend to get stuck on one author and refuse to budge, but I’m about to start The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo now..
