    Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King.

    Worst novel I've ever put myself through, literary proof I'm not a quitter and that a father will always support his son if he knows what love is.

    Garbage novel, start to finish.

    LOVING "The Shining" particularly how they incorporate Tony much more than in the film. I've heard Stephen King was very disappointed in the Kubrick film and I'm looking forward to seeing the differences from book to film.

    Keep picturing Jack Nicholson every time they refer to Mr. Torrance. That's one thing I hate about watching a movie before reading the book is the preconceived notions.

    Highly reccomend "Gatekeeper The Fighting Life of Gary Goodridge" so far from what I've read he was a bigger whore than I was and had some interesting things to say about Tank, Shamrock and how ghetto UFC 8 was. And his fourth degree blackbelt was given to him unearned, he had to wear that gi to represent the gym in order to get his license from a local gym.

    Back stage there were no rooms every fighter was separated by a sheet, and when Goodridge came back from his Bohlander fight he was exhausted and very vocal about it, turns out Frye (his finals opponent) was in the next "room" over and heard everything, so he had his corner team go off on the punching bags so Frye would think he was warming up.

    He originally planned to drop out of the tournament, but when Meyrowitz came back stage to ask if this was true he offered Gary an extra 7,500 win or lose to fight anyway on top of his alreasy 2,500.

    Very good read for someone who grew up watching his fights.

    "People who tell you they don't cheat are liars. I'm of the belief that if you dont cheat you're not trying. If you're not willing to cheat to win, then what the hell good are you as a fighter? Even if a fighter is not doing steroids he's cheating somehow. People use the fence to pull themselves into a better position, or they give an extra elbow shot after the bell. There's such thing as proper cheating and then there's just being dumb. The question is: to what extent do you cheat and what kind of cheating is it?

    The reality of life is everybody cheats."

    Starting up the Odd Thomas series.

    Koontz is give and take, but so far book one of seven is solid.
