Reading Journal: Nevada Barr

About 6 months ago, I had the distinct pleasure of discovering Nevada Barr's wonderful novels that are set all over the U.S. in a variety of national parks. Having been a park ranger herself, she has a real feel for nature and is able to convey the wonder and majesty of some of our most awe inspiring lands while also unreeling some rollicking good mysteries. Once I had read my first book by her (which just happened to be the last one she'd written,) I couldn't stop until I'd read all 13.

Since I'm so far behind in doing spreads for the books I've read, I decided to make just one spread for all her books. I used pages that I'd previously painted with Fawn, Eggshell, and Forest Moss because I thought the colors were nice and earthy looking. I made columns for title, setting, copyright date, and a 2-line summary of each story.

These pages are gorgeous!!! I also love Nevada Barr-she is so good! Thanks for bringing her back to mind, I have not read her latest.

I'm like you also in that if I like one book, I have to read them all.
