After you turn the lights out and settle down to sleep you'll be flooded with ideas. Another good method to get the ideas flowing is to take a shower. You can guarantee that as soon as you're stuck firmly under the water with shampoo all over your hands, the ideas will come thick and fast.(less)

Him by Sarina Bowen
"I absolutely LOVED it! But honestly, I have to stop starting Elle Kennedy books before bed. *yawns* Up until 3:30 a.m. this morning, reading. But so worth it. Bring on the coffee!!!"
Speer by Martin Kitchen
"A thorough and damning re-evaluation of the life of Herr Speer, casting him as an amoral bureaucrat and ambitious political climber, in contrast to his vague admissions of guilt post-war. Directly implicates him in the Nazi use of slave labor and..." Read more of this review »
