    Dracula is great. It's sad what the vampire genre has devolved to nowadays. Stoker's original vision was so much weirder and, IMO cooler.

    its because you are still a new member , it takes 2o posts and 14 days until you can edit (so tommorow then)

    But I just edited my previous post, is it like you can only edit it for a certain amount of time or something?

    yeah when you're a new member its 10 minutes or something ... its an anti spam thing, once you are an established member you can edit anytime (and its automated so nothing personal)

    How do you like it? That's one of King's books that I haven't read, but I've been looking at it on my shelf thinking about it recently.

    I'm enjoying it. One story in particular I really enjoyed, quite the emotional rollercoaster. And one was a little meh.

    Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale (not tail).

    Only got as far as chapter three, but I'm already totally bowled over by her writing. It is so beautiful.

    I got John Grisham's 'The Whistler' from the library the other day and I have to say I'm just a little disappointed. For someone of his reputation the writing's a little weak.

    I'm currently reading "Leota's Garden" by Francine Rivers. It's a short little tale about how Leota, an aging, miserable old woman is put up to a final test : to rebuild her shattered family and revive the beautiful garden that had gotten her through the hard times.

    I'm currently about 3/4 of the way through the book. Honestly one of my favorite books to date.
