If you haven’t already discovered this author, take a moment and find out more about her now.
She is intelligent, easy to read, descriptive in the most appealing way, motivating, and so genuine. She is brilliant! I know virtually nothing about her, and yet I know that her writing is that of one of the most intelligent and insightful women I’ve ever read. Seriously, take a moment.
I need to step back for a minute here. I read her earlier works because my mom enjoyed them. I loved them and couldn’t wait for more.
Then, there was more.
If you know me, then you know that if I want something, I just buy it. However, sometimes I can be a little silly about spending money on fiction – and then, not so much. However, her new book was released and I couldn’t imagine spending $25 for the hardcover edition. I waited a couple of minutes and was still really unsure about spending that much… and then, this appeared: Kindle for iPhone. I was one of those dorks that really wanted the first generation Kindle, but didn’t think it was a good way to spend my cash (instead, I got an iPhone – you can decide for yourself whether this was a good idea or not )
I LOVE this app. I can read Kindle books on my iPhone – sure it is small and all, but I have relatively young eyes and the thought of moving all of my heavy books makes it all the more appealing…
I got the app, bought the book… and guess what. I absolutely NEED to have this actual book. It has been so very long since I’ve loved a book (not a classic) so much that I longed for the smell of that book. I feel like I am missing out on the experience of these stories by reading it on my phone (and I love this app, don’t get me wrong).
I want to smell paper and glue and chemicals and that smell that makes me happy and a little nauseous at the same time.
Check this book out from your library, buy this book, do whatever you need to do – but read this book!
Really. No, really.
(I guess I should have finished the book before I said this, eh?)
