Book Stack 

The Taking by Dean Koontz: I'm a huge Dean Koontz fan... but I'm having a hard time figuring out what to say here. I thought it was an excellent book, and was a pretty fast read for me. I really couldn't put it down... quite riveting. On the other hand, the plot wasn't as in-depth and varied as many of his other books, which could be why it was such a fast read as well. Either way, I did enjoy it quite a bit... even if the ending was "easy".

I'm not sure what I'll decide to read next. I have a few books that are half read that I put down for a while. I'll probably pick one of those up and finish it off, while also enjoying more Calvin and Hobbes. You might ask why I'm bothering to finish books that I've put down for so long. Frankly its something about my nature... I just have a hard time not finishing a book, even if I ultimately decide that it sucks. I don't know why... especially since it ends up taking me twice as long to finish a book I don't like, which only prolongs the torture.

That was intended as a recommendation, I got in a hurry earlier.
