    Children's horror

    Oh yeah, I went through a phase when children's/YA horror was a huge deal with me. I read stuff like Scary Stories to tell in the Dark, and Strange Tales (something like that... can't remember exact title) and then moved on to Christopher Pike and a little of RL Stine. I also read the Witch...

    recommend a poem!!

    If you want to get some laughs, go for Billy Collins. His Smokey the Bear poem is one of the best I've read in a long time. You can find that poem and many others in his collection "The Apple that Astonished Paris."

    Do you read the back cover before you buy?

    I read the back cover (usually not the first few pages, however) if I haven't already researched the book. But if I've read about it on Amazon or something already and I know I want to get it, I don't always read the back cover. Actually I usually read the back cover of a book before I borrow...

    Short - short story

    *total surprise* That was the basis for an entire episode of a series??? For me, the whole appeal is the way it just stops and lets the reader imagine all the rest. Although, I suppose if most of the episode was about how the last person on Earth found him/herself in such a lonely state, it...
