Announcing the 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring has returned, and she’s brought her best friends with her: birds, buds, and every shade of green known to humankind. On her coattails rides another, albeit lesser, reason to be a little giddy…

The 2019 Reel Infatuation Blogathon!

Reel Infatuation 2019-Cary Grant

As usual, I am terribly excited to read everyone’s entries. The diversity, passion, and intelligent commentary participants bring to this blogathon is truly extraordinary. The #charactercrush phenomenon is universal AND so much fun, y’all. 

As for my 2019 choice? Behold…

A Bookstore is Gone, Long Live the Books! Part 11-Dr. Kildare Annual

A local used bookstore recently closed after 25 years. They had a fantastic going-out-of-business sale. While part of me feels “guilty” for taking advantage of their sad circumstances, the rest (and logical) part of me knows that they needed to sell as many books as possible. Through these books, a bit of their entrepreneurial and intellectual spirit will live on. With that idea in mind, I’m doing a limited-run series where I’ll spotlight each of the volumes I “adopted” from this sweet little shop. Shine on, you bookish gems!

Today’s selection? Dr, Kildare Annual

Dr. Kildare Annual

I’m so relieved this is the authorized edition. What would a pirated version be like? Too scary to contemplate, right? (Not serious, by the way!)

DETAILS:

  • TITLE: DR. KILDARE ANNUAL
  • STARRING: RICHARD CHAMBERLAIN
  • COPYRIGHT: 1962, 1964, 1965 BY METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER, INC.
  • PRINTED AND BOUND IN ENGLAND BY JARROLD & SONS LTD, NORWICH
  • INSCRIBED: TO DAVID FROM AUNTY FREDA & UNCLE BILL XXX

WHY I BOUGHT IT:

I collect books based on 1950s and 1960s television shows. All of the others that I own are lightly illustrated novelizations, so I could not resist this special “annual” edition of Dr. Kildare. It consists of three comic book stories. Plus, Dr. Kildare looks pretty dreamy on the cover…and throughout the whole thing. This book is just so much fun!

Thanks for reading! I hope you’re enjoying the series. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

My post for the Reel Infatuation Blogathon, which I co-host!

At this time last year I was super busy writing about not one, not two, but three of my biggest character crushes! Narrowing it down to a single fictional person was too hard, so I went large with ambition. 

First up was the irrepressible Archie Goodwin from the Nero Wolfe series of books by Rex Stout. (Read the original post here.) Archie is witty, sly, highly intelligent, and almost too charming for his own good.

Then it was The Night Stalker‘s Carl Kolchak’s turn to be honored. (Read the original post here.) Carl is an irreverent, sarcastic every-man who always manages to do the right thing, even when the right thing requires an almost super-human amount of courage.

Last, and in no way least, was Hamilton Burger from Perry Mason. Hamilton gets an immense amount of flack for doing the very things which make him such an honorable…
