I was practically born with a book in my hands. An avid reader my entire life, I read about 70-80 books a year. Yep, bona fide book nerd! I mainly read fiction, mysteries, fantasy, and some sci-fi. My favorite book of all time is Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh - read it as a kid and probably 100 times since then. I walked into a library around age 5 and thought I had found heaven, which explains why I am happy as a clam being a public librarian today! My favorite conversation starter: "Read any good books lately?"
Penny won five mystery awards for this book, the first in a very successful series. I somehow had not read them and being an avid mystery reader finally remedied this! I really enjoyed it and would say this is a great read for fans of Agatha Christie. Great characters, great writing, and good plot - if you haven't read this series yet, give it a try.
