How long do these so called "books" take to download?


Seriously, the book at the moment on my nightstand is something I wholeheartedly recommend to everybody. It is The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafron.
Quote:
The novel, set in post–Spanish Civil War Barcelona, concerns a young boy, Daniel. Just after the war, Daniel's father takes him to the secret Cemetery of Forgotten Books, a huge library of old, forgotten titles lovingly preserved by a select few initiates. According to tradition, everyone initiated to this secret place is allowed to take one book from it, and must protect it for life. Daniel selects a book called The Shadow of the Wind by Julián Carax. That night he takes the book home and reads it, completely engrossed. Daniel then attempts to look for other books by this unknown author, but can find none. All he comes across are stories of a strange man – calling himself Laín Coubert, after a character in the book who happens to be the Devil – who has been seeking out Carax's books for decades, buying them all and burning them. (The Shadow of the Wind - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
As so often with a good book, it only starts opening to me now when I'm reading it third time. It is an amazing story. If you find it, read it and like it, please read also the author's latest book The Angel's Game. Though not strictly speaking a sequel, it somehow completes the story of The Shadow of the Wind.

I haven't read any of them, it's just that my daughter has all of them and they are stored at my house, until they get their own permanent place.

She's into all those kind of books as well as horror by, Stephen King, Richard Laymon and James Herbert.

At least it makes it easy to buy her books because Stephen King is still churning them out

I read that many different books that I never bother to remember what it's called unless it's particularly worthwhile. The same goes for the name of the authors...
