Stillwatch Reading is extremely underrated in our country today. Those who do read know what I’m saying. And I’m not talking about Dr. Seuss or Ann M. Martin. I mean REAL books! Books by Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and other best-selling authors. One best-selling author that I have the utmost respect for is Mary Higgins Clark.
