Just finished a nice feel good novel by an author called Donna VanLiere. it is called The Christmas Town.
On some pages I had a lump in my throat,but then I am just a not so old softy wink.png
I picked up the book by chance at our local library. I had not heard of the author before

Stephen King, The Institute. 580 pages
Science Fiction/Horror Genre
Not really horror, horrid, yes.
A horrid tale of exploitation of gifted children.
Children are being abducted, their Parents murdered. Taken to The Institute.
Pricked and probed to enhance their Telekinetic and Telepathic gifts. But for what reasons?
Good versus Evil.
This book had me tearing up at several sections. Never before have I been so emotional reading a fictitious novel.
I read the complete book in about 10 hours. Not wanting to put it down.

Obviously 2 good books to read here.
I have rarely found books that you just cannot put down but I recall this with the original trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I purchased the first book and could not wait for the second and the third. Those books were discovered after the author had passed away and then published a good while before the movies came out. In my opinion and I think most 'readers' would agree from their own experiences, the books are so much better than the films, whether that is because your imagination will never be the same as another persons and therefore will not make it onto the big screen, or also because they do miss out so much from the original text.

A Brief History of Time --- Stephen Hawking --- It begins by reviewing the great theories of the cosmos from Newton to Einstein, before delving into the secrets which still lie at the heart of space and time, from the Big Bang to black holes, via spiral galaxies and strong theory. Rather fascinating.
