Defy the Dark, edited by Saundra Mitchell.

I had a bunch of bookmarks for this book, but the oak leaf seemed best. This is a terrific anthology - I never used to read them but now I find I'm really enjoying them. There are "big names" like you'd expect, but I'm finding I always find one or two authors I'm not familiar with and I end up loving their work and finding all new books to enjoy.

Joyland by Stephen King.

LOVE this book. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I just finished reading every book in the Song of Fire and Ice series (using the same bookmark for every book and yes, it took me months) so I was thrilled to have a book I could hold in one hand, that didn't hurt my face if I dropped it while reading in bed. Perfect summer book - I definitely recommend it.

The bookmark is a signup form for a Barry Manilow fanclub I found in an old LP. I've had it for years but for some reason, it just seemed right now. Looks like you made it, Barry. Thanks.
