Let me go ahead though and mention a couple of books that I think you would enjoy.
- Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill. A ghost story with a love story thrown in. You won't see the love story right away, but it will sneak up on you. Good book.
- Everything's Eventual by Stephen King. This is a great collection of short stories. One of the stories, 1408, has been made into a movie that should be on the big screens this summer. There is a little of something for everybody in these stories.
