Kathy Roberts - Crime Readers Caught Reading Crime... an indie bookstore.

Kathy Roberts is the wonderful book blogger at BermudaOnion's Weblog. On Twitter you can find her as bermudaonion. Today, however, we find her at the Fiction Addiction indie bookstore in Greenville, South Carolina, and she's reading the debut novel from Marcia Clark, GUILT BY ASSOCIATION.

Here's what she has to say about both bookstore and book:
My favorite bookstore is Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC.  The store may be small in size, but the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, so it's a great place to visit and talk books.  They host awesome author events so they're attracting more and more well known authors.  They'll order any book I need and ship books as well.  I was excited to see that Guilt by Association by Marcia Clark is one of their staff picks.  I loved the book because of the great mystery and the fabulous characters.  Rachel Knight, the main character, is tenacious and just a little bit snarky, and I can't wait to read more about her.  If you like legal thrillers, Guilt by Association is a must read!

Let's hear it for another outstanding indie bookstore! Can you see that selection of books there behind Kathy? Looks to me like a fantastic bookstore. Thanks for introducing us to Fiction Addiction, Kathy. And I'm with you 100% on Marcia's book.

More book and bookstore recommendations are coming your way, so be sure to check back tomorrow! Happy reading.

Hi Kathy! The bookstore looks (and sounds) great. I'll have to check out Marcia Clark's book. Thanks for the recommendation.

Kathy, it's good to see you "reading" in Fiction Addiction. You don't look goofy at all! LOL

I'm enjoying this series and hope to read the Marcia Clark book soon. And if I ever get to SC, I'll be sure and stop by this bookstore.

Great pic, Kathy, and I'm glad to hear about this book -- I had missed your review of it. It sounds great!

Nice picture, btw! :)

What a great idea for a series, Jen!
You look great reading, Kath and I love seeing the books laid out on the shelf behind you!

This is a great feature! And I like the picture too!

That is cool. I like the selection of books behind also.

You are so fortunate to have such a great independent book store in your community. And I do love the picture!

I love the picture kathy! You look like you're trying not to laugh.

I'd never heard of this series -- what fun. Great shot, Kathy!

Leslie May 11, 2011 at 2:49 PM  

I'm stopping by to see Kathy reading. This is a great idea for a series of posts.

Margot May 11, 2011 at 2:55 PM  

Kathy - you look great. So nice to have a little peak at your favorite bookstore.

Audra May 11, 2011 at 3:10 PM  

Such an adorable feature! Yay for indie bookstores!

Hi kathy :D
The bookstore looks great

Andi May 11, 2011 at 3:49 PM  

GREAT pick, Kathy! :) Lots of fun.

Peaceful Reader May 11, 2011 at 4:02 PM  

What fun! I love a good indie book store. Kathy, you look great-a perfect reading model!

Suko May 11, 2011 at 4:06 PM  

Kathy, my guess is that you were already a celebrity at this bookstore. Now, there is no doubt about it! And you've probably read more of the books they carry than anyone else has.

Sheila (Bookjourney) May 11, 2011 at 9:33 PM  

Oh thats so fun! Love it and would love to get a chance to get in that book store!

Staci May 11, 2011 at 9:58 PM  

Caught ya!!! Great photo and this sounds like a great book store!

stacybuckeye May 11, 2011 at 10:33 PM  

I think this would be a fun random feature too. How many times during the day do you see someone reading (and try to see what it is they're reading)?

Stacy at A Novel Source May 12, 2011 at 1:35 AM  

What a fun series! I love it! And the bookstore is one I must visit soon Kathy! Once BEA is over!

Laura Fabiani May 12, 2011 at 9:58 AM  

Kathy, you look great! And the bookstore looks cozy for some reason.

Meg May 13, 2011 at 2:53 PM  

I would love to have a cute local bookstore like Fiction Addiction to visit! Very cool.

Juju at Tales of May 14, 2011 at 10:39 AM  

That was great. I adore the feel of small bookstores.

Alice Teh May 14, 2011 at 10:52 AM  

I really like this post, especially with Kathy in it. Small bookstores have a homey feel to it. My favorite is Kinokuniya in Kuala Lumpur. I like the one in Singapore too. It's HUGE!
