I've recently finished two vanilla, but enjoyable books. I thought I should pass them along for your consideration.
Texas by James Michener
My favorite Michener novel remains Poland, but this was a very enjoyable book.
The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
Those who know me know that I've got a soft spot for dogs, the plot of this quick read touched that spot perfectly.
I do read a great deal, and am considering the purchase of an Amazon Kindle. If anyone would care to fill me in on their experiences with this device I would be most appreciative
Lastly, given the subject matter of The Darkest Evening of the Year I want to take this opportunity to mention a good local charity, Pasado's Safe Haven, their good work will continue with our help.
