Rainy Day Reading- My Book review

( Disclaimer-- I paid for every book and would again..)  I recieve ZERO compensation in any shape, form or manner for this Review...
 I know these have been out since 1986 but folks if you haven't read Sue Grafton, you've really missed some fun, interesting reading.    I have to stop myself and get back to work or I'd loose days and sleep cause I cant put her down..  There are 19 books in this series each as good or better than the last.
 I get so into these stories I actually considered taking a Private Investigator course, ROLF..  Yes I dream of being a super slouth out and about gathering clues, information, just making a pest of myself in general and then, against all odds I SOLVE the case , take a deep breath of satisfied contentment, collect me fee and on to the next one..

Playing at Rainy Day Reading - Our Home in the Maples
 I think any book that makes you consider the subject as an actual career is GOOD READING .. 

Here's just 1 sample of 173 great reviews::

Kinsey Millhone is a hard-boiled, gun-toting, loner--a private investigator who keeps to herself and does whatever it takes to solve her case. I first read this book as a teenager, and Kinsey's toughness and un-sentimentality turned me off (young romantic that I was). Coming back to this series as an adult has given me an appreciation for the character and the genre that I lacked before. What you see is what you get with Kinsey Millhone, and that simplicity is her strength.
This book is not only truly groundbreaking, it is also a plain ol' great mystery. Grafton keeps Kinsey busy interviewing suspects, following leads, and stirring up trouble. Kinsey's work is pretty much her life, and except for the occasional evening with a handsome stranger, you can expect her to stay focused on the case.
Unless you prefer your mysteries soft and cozy, you'll enjoy Kinsey Millhone and her straight-forward approach to crime. Best of all, if you enjoy this one, there are 14 more (so far) to keep you busy.

Pinned Cause I need This

Happy Friday Folks..

I pinned this and added the link cause I want it and I need it.  The configuration of my bath off my bedroom doesnt allow me to use a regular door- since I need that wall for my chest ..   If I could make just a 1 door version of this it would solve my issue, look great and make me SMILE.. Ya know making me smile is biggie in my book.. Plus the instructions say it can be made in a budget friendly manner AND I found a door this morning on craigslist for only 10 bucks..
