"Listen, little beast. Judge me as you will, but first listen. I am your mother. What happened to us could have happened anywhere, to any mother. I'm not the first woman on earth to have seen her daughters possessed." The Belgian Congo, 1959 (excerpt)

There may not be the kind of violence in this book for which King is known, but he pulls no punches in describing life as a writer. On Writing includes his own story, advice and a section about his brush with death in 1999. It is honest, funny and crisp. Highly recommended.

This novel is told as a series of "Progress Reports" written by a thirty-two year-old man whose IQ is tripled by an experimental surgical procedure. The book touches upon many different ethical and moral themes such as the treatment of the mentally disabled. The story of Charlie Gordon is a memorable portrait of alienation, of an individual who is at odds with his society and who struggles to have satisfactory relationships with others. Enjoy!

"It was not a story to pass on." (p. 275)
Whether you decide to pass it on or pass on it is your choice. I have decided to pass it on. Enjoy!

Looking for that book to really boggle your mind? Check out Jon Krakauer's national bestseller Into the Wild, the story of a man who leaves behind all that he knows to find enlightenment in nature's purest form.

This book will take you to places not ordinary to anyone. The ocean is one of the last frontiers and this book tells a tale of people who dare to dive in .... who knows, maybe Nessie has a cousin...
