Read to Death is BIG!!! And a Giveaway!

By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by TerrieFarley Moran




Here on Fort Myers beach, there is much excitement in the Read ’Em and Eat cafĂ© and bookstore. In our last adventure, chronicled in the book Read to Death, Bridgy went from witness to suspect in thirty seconds flat when a local van driver is murdered in our parking lot. We’d just returned from an outing with the Cool Reads/Warm Climate Book Club made up of local residents and snowbirds. We visited the Edison and Ford Winter estates where Thomas Edison and Henry Ford spent their winters a hundred years ago. Everyone had a fabulous time---right up until the murder.
 I am mega excited to let you know that today, July 19th, is the release day for the LARGE PRINT EDITION of Read to Death. When my father visits me in Fort Myers Beach, we always go to the library. He heads right for the large print section and he is not alone.



To celebrate this momentous event, our author, who has just returned from Ireland and Northern Ireland, is holding a wee giveaway of this lovely refrigerator magnet depicting two of the famous Georgian Doors of Dublin.


To enter for a chance to win please comment below and tell us anything at all about large print books. You love to read them, you hate to, your mom reads them, you have never seen one—we want to know. Please include your email in this format: yourname (at) your server(dot) com—so the spambots can’t pick it up.
Comments close at midnight on Friday, July 21st.

  1. I'm happy to say that my local library has a good selection of large-print books, right up front. When I get author copies of my large print editions, I give one to the library. (As an aside, my library recently created a Sale Room in their basement, where I believe books are priced at a dollar. Now they can accept all book donations, and if the books don't find a place on the shelves upstairs, the library can earn a little money downstairs.)

  3. I don't have to read them yet, but have always been pleased to see that our library has a good section of them with a wide variety of genres. A co worker stopped in at my branch because of that! Thanks!

  16. Large print books are wonderful for my 86 year old mother, who is a voracious reader, but is having hard time reading regular books, even with her reading glasses. I send her large print cozies whenever I can (I want to get her to expand her reading experience from just romances, and what better way to introduce her to another genre than with a cozy!) bobandcelia@sbcglobal.net

  18. Large-print books are hard to find. But when your eyes are tired from looking at screens all day at work, they're very soothing.

  21. I love large print books! They are so much easier to read. One of the reasons I read on my kindle so often is the fact I can enlarge the type. You just can't beat holding a real book or the smell of a book. Meg85242 (at) gmail (dot) com

  22. I am legally blind and was born with cataracts. I love to read Lamar get print book or on my kindle where I can adjust the print big enough for me to read.
    My family and I were in Ireland in 2014. I loved seeing the beautiful colorful doors in Dublin. That magnet would remind me of our trip, if it was on my fridge. Thanks for a chance to win it.

  25. I do enjoy reading large print books. I love to find them at my local library. I can see smaller print alright as long as I am wearing my glasses, but I really enjoy being able to read the larger print and take a break from having to wear my spectacles :) tmleafs42 (at) yahoo (dot) com

  29. I have a little free library at my winery. Those who choose not to imbibe, can take a book and read while they wait. The Large Print books I've had are always the first to go home with someone special. cheers at marjimmanor dot com

  30. I love large print books...my eyes are fine, really! At least that's what I tell everyone, but the squinting is a dead giveaway. No matter what light the large print books are clearer and more legible for me to enjoy.
    Thanks for the opportunity...I love this series!

  31. At the age of 62, If I have a choice, I take the larger print.It's easier on the eyes, especially if it's on an e-reader. Fewer headaches for me, litterally. jluebke(at)frontier(dot)come
