    I’m waiting for the Thunderstorm edition, which both Jeff and Paul hinted on Twitter is a sure thing.

    Reading House Haunted by Al Sarrantonio as well as The House By The Cemetery by Brian Everson. Both are very good. In addition to those I'm also reading Lilja's Library The World of Stephen King.

    Just finished Max Brooks' "Devolution". Liked it way more than I expected. I was worried that it would verge into silliness territory, but, it treated the premise in a very grounded way. Overall, the writing was good and the characters enjoyable. My only complaint might be that it could have been scarier. There were some scary scenes, but, the real vibe of the book is tenseness as opposed to scariness.

    For my next read, I plan to begin Thomas Harris' "Red Dragon". Was able to pick-up a copy of the Suntup gift edition which is gorgeous. This will be my first time reading this novel and am hoping it is as great as I have heard.
    I really need to finish THE TWELVE already so I can move on to DEVOLUTION. I only have like 80 pages left so I’m hoping to knock that out over today and tomorrow.

    Yes it is! Actually all but one Thomas Harris novel is a great read.

    I really enjoyed Devolution. I enjoyed the societal aspects more than I would have liked scares.

    Becoming - A Guided Journal for Discovering Your Voice by Michelle Obama
    I love the questions included in this "journal". It's full of thought provoking personal questions that make self growth easier and guided.

    Just finished The Silence yesterday and read Touch the Night right before that. If I were choosing between the two, I would go with Touch the Night. The Silence was a good but standard apocalypse story; however, at least to me, Touch the Night was a much more original/bonkers novel with some amazing characterization. Touch the Night was my first Max Booth III read, and based on its strength, I will be reading his next book for sure!
    THAT settles it. I'll read Touch the Night next. I was hoping it would be as good as described and your use of the word bonkers heartens me.

    I’m reading Brian Keene’s, End of the Road, which has lead me to refer back to, Dark Dreamers: Facing the Masters of Fear Edited by Stanley Wiater, Photographs by Beth Gwinn. That set me onto Scream Quietly: A collection of Charles L. Grant, and that to Thomas Monteleone’s, The Mothers And Fathers Italian Association, which I didn’t own, but I do now. I think Brian Keene is very brave to put his life out there. To let complete strangers poke through his story and say WTF were you thinking!!! I took it to the VA today and read it while I waited a couple of hours for an X-ray. He certainly helped the time go by. Lots of great information. I’m really enjoying it. Not always a happy story, but an interesting one.

    Finished reading Midnight Under the Big Top edited by Brian James Freeman. I'm deep into (and loving it!) Stories To Be Whispered: The Collected Short Fiction of Cornell Woolrich Volume Two. I started reading The Lone Ranger #4: Heritage of the Plains/Lone Star Renegade/Death's Head Vengance. It's the last of the Lone Ranger novel length stories from the Lone Ranger pulp magazine.
