    I don't think I've ever read a Stephen King novel, but I have a ton of them in a box downstairs that I got from someone a few years ago. I keep saying that I'm going to read them but never get around to it.

    Read them! Great author!

    I just started The City by Dean Koontz. So far so good.

    I've read dozens of Koontz's books over the past 15 years or more. He has to stop writing. His books are getting stale, IMHO. I can't read them anymore.

    I have all his books up until 2010. Then I kinda fell off the fan wagon. I'm trying this one out-first one in 4 yrs....

    Koontz writes good "on the beach" books.

    I'm 1/2 way through a 1200 page book - loving the book (Shogun by James Clavell), but I love the feeling of finishing a book and this one is taking forever!

    I hate finishing a book! It's like your vacation is over.

    I'm actually going back in time and going through some older Stephen King novels and some stuff under his other pen names from years ago. Currently in the middle of "The Bachman Books".

    I've been making my way through a fantasy series I never, ever, bothered to read until now: Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. Then I'll pop some Stephen King and Chuck Palahniuk back on the Kobo. I asked for House of Leaves for Christmas, the way it's written makes it essential to be read on paper.

    The Martian was a great read. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the book was great.

    I'm reading "Nice Is Just A Place In France" It's a bit ridiculous. I want to start reading more throughout the summer, but I don't know what I'd be interested in reading. :lol:

    I went to a local used book sale a few weeks ago, and I now have about a dozen books to last me the summer. Mostly "light" reading... some mystery, some romance-ey type stuff. Right now I'm reading "The Art of Undressing". I expect I'll be through it before the end of the weekend if I take the time to sit and read.

    Stocking up on books for our vacation. Anyone got any recommendations? I'll read damn near anything that's a good story.

    Just finished
