Skeleton Crew and Nightshift are the two I got...Nightshift is just a paperback, but the Skeleton Crew is a hard cover....It has a pick of the monkey on the cover from The Monkey...The Mist is on there, love that story...and the movies was pretty spot on...
The Raft...Uncle Otto's Truck...The Jaunt...Beachworld...some of my fav ones...but they are all good...

On Nightshift The Boogeyman was my fav...but again, they were all good...

Yep in my collection.... The raft...oh that was scary.... the mist was excellent.... lawnmower man.... remember the one that the grass/mold grew on the person, who was SK in the movie....

Did you read the book where the people where stuck on their street while the child had this monster in him and these  people where killed..oh Ak was the name of the monster... ...Oh.... I hated the books and it took me two years to read.

I will have to pull them out... Good reads

wow?  books?  what are those? 

i haven't read much lately.  i tend to get obsessed when i read and i can't put it down, so i've made myself NOT read much this summer.  sounds crazy, but i've been able to accomplish much more. 

i would like a good read though for next week, maybe i'll go dust off an old copy of a book i haven't read in a while.

Beloved by Toni Morrison is my favorite.  And 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  both were my all time favorites WAY before oprah picked them.  just FYI.  she copies me, i don't copy her.
