Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
?????? whatever catches my attention?

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
When the book I've been engrossed in ends randomly and i freak out and throw it at the wall because now I have to wait for the next one. I HATE CLIFF HANGERS!!!!!!!!
