Just started "The Upper Room" by Mary Monroe. I really like her books.

Just finished the Kindle edition of "Draculas", a highly entertaining gore fest by 4 collaborating authors, including J.A. Konrath.

Borders Books is going out of business. I'm saving up for a month or two, then I'll load up on my favourite authors at a big discount!
