I am currently listening to Ann Granger‘s last Markby and Mitchell Village Whodunit Mystery, and I am sick about it! I know that I have mentioned (several times) about how I hate to "catch up" with my favorite authors. I try to leave a few books in my TBR (To Be Read) pile so that I have some books to really look forward to. But, since I read my books faster (just barely!) than an author writes his/her books, invariably, there comes a day when I "level out" with the author.
The latest author who simply isn’t writing fast enough for me is Ann Granger. I waited and waited to finally read her fifteenth Markby & Mitchell novel (That Way Murder Lies), but I finally broke down and started listening to it…. and could simply not put it down (or should I say "turn it off"?!?) I now have only a few chapters until I will no longer have "an Ann Granger" to look forward to…
I was so delighted when I found that audible.com carried her novels. I quickly purchased them (unabridged, of course!) and gave my TBR "real books" to my library for other connoisseurs of wonderful books to enjoy. And, as excited as I was to get the books "on tape"… I was even more excited when I heard Judith Boyd’s phenomenal reading of the books. (She’s right up there with my other favorite book narrators.)
Perhaps I should take a more positive view of this…. a glass half full approach… a silver lining in the clouds… Nope! Doggone it…. Why can’t my favorite authors just write faster!?!
