Caught! - Michael Connelly

I can't believe that Michael Connelly is often without a book in his hands...when he isn't writing that is. He's so well read in the genre. Here he's caught reading one I recently finished, Don Winslow's POWER OF THE DOG.

I had to chuckle when I received this picture because Michael Connelly said at Bouchercon that he's not a big fan of long books since he's a slow reader. Lord can I identify with that. But sometimes those epic novels can just snag you and not let go. POWER OF THE DOG is one such book.

Michael Connelly's most recent publications are THE SCARECROW and NINE DRAGONS. We're looking forward to his release of THE REVERSAL later this year.

I just love seeing what the authors are reading! Thanks for sharing these pictures.

Thanks for sharing! Connelly is one of my favorite authors. His books are crisp and modern, yet noir in their own way.

I didn't know he was a slow reader, thanks for sharing.

Yes, big books can be daunting -- but they also hold potential greatness!

Great pic! Michael is a great guy. I've met him at Bcon and LCC. And I'm really enjoying Scarecrow when I don't have something I'm trying to read for my show.

This is such a cute picture. Are you going to make a scrapbook of these photos and get them signed, too? I hope Winslow gets a PR-boost from this!

I'm already addicted to this series, Jen. I find myself repeatedly checking in the evenings to see if you've posted the latest photo.

I almost forgot to stop by and see who was caught today.
Nice fun fact about Connelly and his slow reading. Interesting because at the speed he cranks out his books I would figure him to be a fast reader.

I bet posting this pic gave you a silent/inside chuckle as well (!).... ;-*

I think I'm going to nickname you "Scoop." You personify that old quote from the infamous Nathan Bedford Forrest: "Get thar the firstest with the mostest."

Naomi, "Scoop" is sure a step up from my other names lately! LOL

Thanks everyone. I have to thank Michael's publicist for this great picture. She sent it my way, and I just have to say I think she's the cat's pajamas!
