Subject: Wonderful Reading
I have just listened for the first time to Bram Stokers Dracula. I love Elizabeth Clats readings. Every one kept me on the edge of my seat. I also listened to Carmilla and now listening to The House of the Vampire. Love Elizabeth's reading. Very clear and keeps me interested. Thank you for the this service. Tracey L. Grant, Maine
