The "King of Horror," Stephen King (pun intended). Without a question. The Master of Screams has written over 60 novels, including Cujo, It, Misery, and Pet Semetary, since releasing his debut book Carrie in 1974. He has established himself as one of the greatest writers in history. What more could a horror fan want than... Continue Reading →
I'm not just about the books. I love a good movie. Movies speak to the ADD part of my brain that needs instant gratification. Plus, if you didn't know, a long time ago in a galaxy far far away I worked at a video rental store. No. It was not Blockbuster. It was literally a... Continue Reading →

Have you heard of book nooks? I didn't until recently. But now that I've seen them, I want one for every shelf.
They say you can't judge a book by it's cover. But isn't that the point of a book cover, to grab you attention. They are designed to catch your attention. From a bookshelf they holler, "Hey. Look at me. Pick me up. Choose me."

It was glorious and I miss it.
