A READER'S BLISS
We readers like our books. We like our stories, we like finding bits of quiet time, and we might occasionally like a bath full of warm water AND a book. We definitely like finding new authors we love.
But for me, there's no reader's bliss like discovering a "new" author with a backlist. Oh the joy! For a picky reader, this can be sheer bliss. Sometimes in the past, I've discovered a "new" author only to be let down by the backlist. But sometimes, less than once in a blue moon, the backlist doesn't disappoint.
This happened to me over the holidays (author Kristan Higgins) and I've been happily reading her backlist ever since. Six good books in a row. Color me happy!
What's your Reader's Bliss?
PS Kristan Higgins is not a CBA author. I would put a PG13 rating on her books.
