Roald Dahl --  he spans generations.  My children loved his books.   Then we (as adults) enjoyed his adult books, some of which are horror.    When I traded in books at the used bookstore, I never ever took a Dahl book in.   Now, the Dahl bookshelf downstairs is being emptied, thanks to 8-year-old Madison, the next generation of a Dahl reader.   But she isn't getting his "adult" books, at least not quite yet.

To add to my thankful list:  Dahl's ex-wife Pat Neal was from around here;  the Pat Neal Rehabillitation Center is nearby.

I don't think I've read anything by Roald Dahl. The books that have made me laugh out loud the most are the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. Not great literature but very entertaining.
