    I finished Keyhole this morning. I'm sad now because I'm gonna miss that book, dammit. :(

    About to start book two in the Song of Ice and Fire series (aka Game of Thrones) called A Clash of Kings. Plan on reading Joyland after.

    Jud is warning Louis about burying Gage in the Micmac Burial Grounds, using Timmy Bateman as an example.

    Have you read Neil Gaiman's little book, MAKE GOOD ART? It is also from a speech he gave, and he's also very complimentary to Mr. King (and beside that,Mr. Gaiman is both a wonderful speaker and writer :D)

    Since I've been playing Halo on Xbox for years and years, I decided to give the books a try. They have books 1-6 available for ebook download off Barnes and Noble priced pretty reasonably so I downloaded the first one by Eric Nylund, so far it's very good.

    I've liked that book best of the series (so far--haven't read DANCE WITH DRAGONS yet, though a little bird tells me it will be under the tree in a little over a week--lol).

    No, I haven't read this book. I have to say that Mr. Simmon's likes King but he also stated that he didn't think King's works would be read by folks a hundred or so years from now as King uses too many of our 'everyday' items in his works by using 'name brands', etc. and he (Simmons) didn't think that our future folk would be very interested in those types of things. I totally disagree with that because I feel that King has used everyday life in America as a spring board for his stories and that our future folks are going to want to see how dramatically different their life is compared to ours. I feel that King is our generations Dickens and that he will be read 100 years from now. You can't stifle talent!

    There's no law that says you can't do a re-read.

    Started I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg. I need something light and happy to read for the holidays. I love Fannie! Her books are always so uplifting! Reading her books is like shining a flashlight under the refridgerator, expecting to find lint and cat hair stuck to the cooling coils and finding a nice, shiny quarter instead! Happy, happy, happy!

  16. Do you happen to know of any real scary stories? I'm a big fan of The Shining. I'm looking for stories that are scary like The Shining.
