I'm working my way through Sue Grafton's alphabet series. I read a couple then shift to something else. Right now I'm on G for Gumshoe and have Ragman by Walter Wangerin on the shelf to follow.

Writing the Family Narrative, by Lawrence P. Gouldrup.....actually a very interesting and inspiring book

Right now it's Fire and Ice by J.A. Jance. She's taken to combining her Joanna Brady series and her J.P. Beaumont series and I'm confused.

The Boys Who Vanished, by John Carson.
It's a young reader classic from the late 1950s, about 2 boys who drink scientist Dad's secret elixir and shrink to the size of ants. Then they have to try to make it
home. Only 4 houses, but sooo far....

Is one of my childhood favorite books that I finally found on ebay. A rare book actually, worth about $45 if in good condition. I KNEW I had good taste, LOLOL

This Koontz seems to be so popular. How were books Frankenstein 1 and 2? Were they worth reading? Just figure so many people waiting for this guy's books.
