Little time for fiction anymore, but when I had the time I waited impatiently for new Dean R. Koontz books.

Koontz writes horror I believe?

know what you mean about time to read. Also money - when did books get so expensive and why is my local library so limited?

My bedtime reading recently has consisted of forums, cs lewis and the entire anne of green gables series, purely cos I hadn't read the books for years and needed some brain candy after all the scary news
