The Book Slooth Thanks for the list of non-paranormal books.
Don't get me wrong, I love fantast and paranormal, but it's so hard to find a real life story these days.
You go to the bookstore and everything on the shelf is not real. :)

Resident Optimist You're welcome :) I absolutely agree, my local library is absolutely littered with paranormal books
