Journal Entry 1 by KatColorado from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Thursday, January 27, 2005
I found this book in a second hand bookstore today.

It's actually kind of an old friend of mine... The main character of this book is the one and only KATCOLORADO ;-) and Katwalk is her first case. I already have the book in my bookshelf (my real one) but of course I couldn't resist. I will release it for sure I just don't know how yet...

I made up my mind, I will send it off as a bookring first and then we will see, take it to the meetup maybe...

Journal Entry 2 by KatColorado from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Sunday, February 06, 2005
Kat Colorado - the real one, not me - is an exbartender and works as a P.I. in Sacramento/CA. Her best friend Charity Collins, an agony aunt for a newspaper, needs her help. Her husband has taken 200'000 dollars out of their common funds, all there was actually and is missing, presumably in Las Vegas.

Kat follows Sam Collins to the city of glitter and glimmer into a rat's nest of sleazy real estate deals, heavy hitting mobsters and contract killings. She doesn't back off, even when her searchings put her own live at danger.

Der "Bookring" (wann ist ein Ring ein Ring ;-) startet heute. Ich hoffe, Catbook mag das Buch und wer weiss, vielleicht finden sich danach noch andere, die es auch gerne lesen würden...

Journal Entry 5 by wingCatbookwing from Datteln, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Wednesday, February 16, 2005
Juchuuu, heute bei mir angekommen! Ich habe auch nur noch einen Ring abzuarbeiten, dann kann es schon losgehen...
11.04.05 edit: Nun hat es doch etwas länger gedauert, weil mir noch ein paar andere Bücher einfach so dazwischengehüpft sind und weil sich zuerst niemand anderes mehr angemeldet hatte...
Nun denn, am Wochenende habe ich es endlich gelesen und sobald ich sanne2´s Adresse habe, kann es weiterreisen.

Journal Entry 6 by wingCatbookwing from Datteln, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Monday, April 11, 2005
Wooh, that was my first contact with Kat Colorado and it was very pleasant.
This P.I. is a very sympathetic person, curious like a cat, courageous where necessary, but also able to admit fear and physical weakness. Of course a privat investigator can´t always be and act rational, so she sometimes runs into dangerous situations ...
Luckily I have the following next two books of the series here, unluckily in german, but I think they will be my next read ( after another one or two rings to be done first ).

Journal Entry 7 by sanne2 from Westerburg, Rheinland-Pfalz Germany on Wednesday, April 13, 2005
Das Buch kam gestern bei mir an. Das ging ja superschnell! Da ich gerade auch die "Die Katze, die.."-Box daheim habe, bin ich mit Katzen-Krimis momentan gut versorgt

Journal Entry 8 by sanne2 from Westerburg, Rheinland-Pfalz Germany on Wednesday, May 11, 2005
Sooo, nachdem Katwalk sogar mit in Basel war, wo ich auch die Namensvetterin CatColorado getroffen habe, habe ich das Buch nun durchgelesen.
Die Privatdetektivin Cat Colorado ist mir sehr sympathisch, sie erinnert mich ein wenig an Vic Warshavski (die Krimiautorin ist mir leider entfallen), sie schert sich auch um keine Konventionen und fällt - wie die Katzen - auch mit den Füßen zuerst wieder auf die Erde, will heißen: wenn ihr auch noch so viel passiert, sie kommt immer mit dem Leben davon...
Jetzt darf als nächstes coco7 lesen!

Und jetzt ist es bei mir! Ist ja ganz dünn ...

Journal Entry 10 by coco7 from Sprendlingen, Rheinland-Pfalz Germany on Monday, June 27, 2005
One more crime series I have to read!
Kat reminds me very strongly of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone, who is also a Californian P.I., curious, daring, not very lucky with men. Kat is even more likeable, because she likes good food, gardening and getting up late :-)
I liked Charity's column, too.

Journal Entry 11 by Daine from Bremen, Bremen Germany on Thursday, July 07, 2005
Kam schon vor einigen Tagen an, wird so bald wie möglich gelesen.

15.8.:
I really like P.I. Kat Colorado. She reminds me a bit of Marcia Mullers Sharon McCone books.
I definitely try to find more ;o)

Journal Entry 12 by lesezeichen from Düsseldorf, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Saturday, September 03, 2005
The book has arrived well and I'm looking forward to reading it. Thanks everybody!

Edit 20.09.: What a sassy character! I enjoyed this book very much and that is due in large part to this incomparable female PI. Thanks KatColorado, both of you ;-)

Journal Entry 13 by sun-beetle from Stäfa, Zürich Switzerland on Monday, September 19, 2005
kat arrived at my home, looking forward to get to know her.

Journal Entry 14 by sun-beetle from Stäfa, Zürich Switzerland on Friday, September 23, 2005
perfect to read and relaxe after work, although I did not sleep a lot :-)
I like Kat Colorado, her character is just great. She's so human and i just had to like her. Even if the story sometimes isn't worth so much, Kat makes it all up and this definitely won't be the last book of these series I've read!
thanks for this ring

I'll give it to wildspitz at our next meet-up

Journal Entry 15 by Wildspitz from Baar, Zug Switzerland on Saturday, October 15, 2005
Now the book is with me and I am already curious getting to know the "real" Kat Colorado after I already know the Bookcrossing KatColorado quite well.

Thank you for the ring!

Journal Entry 16 by Wildspitz from Baar, Zug Switzerland on Sunday, October 30, 2005
I enjoyed this book during my vacation on a greek beach! It was a fast read. The story is not always convincing, but who cares. I especially liked the part when Kat tries to impress her new boyfriend with making pancakes.

The book describes a lot of features of every day American life I had nearly forgotten. I was reminded a lot of the time I spent as an exchange student in California.

I guess I will return it to KatColorado during the December Meetup in Zürich.

Lent to me by the lovely KatColorado at tonight's meetup!

Journal Entry 19 by nice-cup-of-tea from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Friday, December 09, 2005
I couldn't quite separate the two KatColorados in my mind :-) Especially since they both like martinis...
The PI KatColorado was a great character, no nonsense, liked her food, drink & men - I approve! Favourite quote?
p.157
"I can run 5 miles, swim two moves, move pool tables my myself, and leap short, squat buildings in a single bound. I can talk tough, drink shots of Wild Turkey, and eat very hot Mexican food."
My kind of girl :-)

This Kat will be making her way home to the other Kat very soon - maybe next Thursday. And in case I forget, the fictional Kat wishes the real Kat a very Happy Birthday for next Monday (Dec 12th!)

Journal Entry 20 by nice-cup-of-tea from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Tuesday, February 07, 2006
Passing this to Sunneschii at the Zurich meetup on Feb 9th

Journal Entry 21 by Sunneschii from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Thursday, February 09, 2006
Helen gave me the book at today's meetup... I'm looking forward to reading it!:-))

Journal Entry 22 by Sunneschii from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Saturday, February 25, 2006
It was a nice mystery, although maybe a bit outdated. Kat is a great person.... there was just one problem with her name..... For me, Kat is somebody else!!;-)

Journal Entry 24 by flying-bat from Baden, Aargau Switzerland on Tuesday, March 14, 2006
Now that I know and really like "our" Kat, I have to get to know the fictional one too. I took this book home form the March meet-up and will return it to the real Kat as soon as I've read it.
Looking forward to the story already!

Journal Entry 25 by flying-bat from Baden, Aargau Switzerland on Thursday, April 13, 2006
I really liked the style of this book! Short chapters with witty intros followed by enthralling story-parts - a page-turner! Not to mention that Kat Colorado is a really cool cat! I would love to meet her again in another story.

I will return this book to BC-KatColorado today at the Easter meet-up. Thanks for sharing! :-)

Journal Entry 26 by KatColorado from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Thursday, April 13, 2006
It's back, I am back ;-) this is great because I gave away my original copy and now my series is complete again (at least almost because I just gave away the second book temporarily ;-)

I am so glad to be reunited with the book that I will take it on my holidays to Turkey....

Journal Entry 27 by KatColorado from Zürich, Zürich Switzerland on Monday, May 01, 2006
I took it on my holidays in Turkey. It was the first book I read there and it woke up my reading lust which had been sleeping for months. I just like Kat Colorado and her life ;-) I will try to read through all of her books now, number two is currently travelling but once it's back with me I will read it as well...
