was able to read a lot of new authors and explored new writing style especially with historical mystery. it inspired me to write something similar from our culture. unfortunately, when i did my preliminary research, it looks like it's going to take me years to complete it.

for 2009, i've started reading these:
  1. The Reel Stuff ed. by Brian Thomsen and Martin Greenberg
  2. Map of Bones by James Rollins
  3. Gallery of Horror ed. by Charles Grant

still have a long way to go since i bought a lot of books. but i am not worried one bit. also i'm highly enjoying the use of my laptop. so the great news is...i'm writing again and loving every minute of it!!!
