    I read Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk. Let’s just say it wasn’t exactly pleasant… and the source of horror was quite different from what I had expected from the blurb and description. Nonetheless, Palahniuk is a writer of note, and Lullaby is counted among one of his finer works, and I am glad that I read it.

    I read “The Ghosts on South Battery” by Karen White, which was a ghost story with a haunted house & murder mystery. So really on target.

    I read Syndrome by Marco De Hoogh 5/10 recommend. Good story, too many errors.
