    I love Stephen King…one of my favorite authors. I read Duma Key a couple of years ago…it’s a really good read, I could actually read it again. If you enjoy these types of stories you should try Dean Koontz, if you haven’t already. I remember that I read Stephen King’s IT when I was pregnant with my son.

Then I would get all spooked and have to turn off the light and run to my bed and jump in real quick and snuggle up to him…lol. Funny how a good book can scare me so much worse than any movie ever has.

My scariest was The Shining at my grandparent’s secluded house during a thunderstorm when I was about 10. Delicious yikes!

    […] It was a quiet ride for the most part. The comfortable companionate silence between two people with nothing to prove who simply enjoy each other’s company. But it was also a journey to the past for me, as we drove from where we live to the area where I spent ten years of my former life. […]
