Stephen King and Michael Crichton books, books, and books!

So, I've sort of made a goal for myself this year that I would read 25 books. Now, I've read On Writing by Stephen King recently, which was purchased on Amazon from SmokeyMtnBooks. (Buy from them if you want super fast shipping.) And Stephen King reads around 70 books a year he says. I'm not sure if I'm there yet. However, On Writing is a great book if you love Stephen King's work and if you wish to be a writer one day. Even if you don't want to be a writer you should buy On Writing because it has a lot of his biography in the book. He's a neat guy.

Another book I purchased on Amazon recently is Jurassic Park (go ahead, allow the masses to sigh and call me a dweeb) but it is an absolute wonderful book. It's like the movie, but much of it is very different and it's an exciting read. I purchased it from Breaktimebooks on Amazon. Their shipping was very fast and the book was in just the condition they said it would be in: Good.
Jurassic Park is written by Michael Crichton who was a scientist. His writing is filled with tech knowledge, but it's interesting and good. It never get's boring. He mastered the art of teaching his audience while entertaining them.

And I also recently purchased another Stephen King book, Bag of Bones. I've not started reading it yet, but Stephen King speaks of this book in On Writing and says that the house in the book is much like his own Summer Home in Bangor, Maine. I picked Bag of Bones up on Amazon from Seashellbooks, inc. The shipping was fast and the book was in just the condition they said it would be in which was: fair. I like the weathered look though on my book shelf. Speaking of book shelves we purchased Invisible Book Shelves a few weeks ago on Amazon. It is an Umbra 330632 shelf and you simply screw it into your wall and then place your books on the "L" shape and WALLA! You have floating books! We picked those up from Jumby Bay Studios on Amazon.
Here are the books being held up by the Umbra 330632 Invisible Shelves!

There you have it folks! Book reviews and some really neat shelves!

Check out all the sellers I've mentioned. I wouldn't mention them unless they were good.

Hey, if you like Jewlery be sure to check out our store on Etsy. We also have an array of antique items as well.
