    "The Watchers", by Dean Koontz.

    I've read it many times before--I always drag his old books back out every so often, just because I love them, lol.

    I love to read before I go to sleep, but I got addicted to hubbing for a while. lol And then I got interested in making videos.  So, by the time I hit the bed at 1:00-2:00am (sometimes even later), I was just too tired to read.  Recently, I found a book I bought from the library sale for 25cents... a romance by Lynn Kurland, "With Every Breathe I Take" (Whoo! so cheesy!), which I started reading last year but never finished.  I had forgotten what it was all about... so I started reading it again from the beginning, and I am loving it.

    I just got done reading American Assassin by Vince Flynn. Excellent book. All of his books are good.

    Next is either Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy or SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper.

    Kindle for me too.  I just started Charles Frazier's "Nightwoods". You have to wait a decade between each of his novels, so it's pretty exciting when one comes out.

    I'm re-reading Sylvia Brown's Life on the Other Side and her book on dream intrepretation. To add to the stack I'm half way through Michael Connelly's Lincoln Lawyer. Love those other worldly experiences and the law stories.

    I think it's really fascinating what people read. It's often quite in contrast with what people think you are.

    Cold Mountain - Charles Frazier - I've already read it years ago, but love to pick it up and read random pages, stunningly written first novel

    Portrait of a Lady - Henry James - classic literature never gets old

    Library of World Poetry - wonderful

      I've just read the first two chapters of Frazier's latest novel.  Looks like it will be right on par with the others.

    I'm on a reading slump. I have books on my beside, but nothing new and interesting. Currently re-reading We by Zamyatin, but not getting very far. Some works on this forum sound appealing, may give them a try, but I hate to leave a book I've started until I finish it.

        It's not classic King horror. It's more introspective. Parts of it are actually pretty deep.

      Just finished "The Winter Sea" by Susanna Kearsley..  Anybody who liked this would like "The Vigin Blue" by the lady who wrote "Girl With The Pearl Earring." Still reading "What the Dog Saw" by Malcom Gladwell. About to start "Fall of the Giants" by Ken Follett.  Listen to it books on tape and want to read the book to make sure I didn't miss a word.  Can't wait for the next book in the trilogy.
