    I just bought it from Barnes & Noble for 60% off with lots of sales and coupon vouchers. I'll read it sometime soon. It's thick.

    Some more meandering,

    As a "noob" I've wanted and have been intrigued by his books for a long time but never much actually attempted to read them. I enjoy to read but a lot of his books as fat as fuck and those take me forever and I'm poor at keeping up, even if a book is THAT good. I have always enjoyed his film adaptations as well as his original works for the screen such as Creepshow. After seeing IT I said fuck it and decided to delve into his bibliography. I've been snatching up his books left and right every week during lunch hour from B&N. 8.99 a book isn't bad. I'm getting quite a big catalog and am starting to thrust forward with actually reading what I'm buying. I have bought a lot of books the past 2 months...

    Its's in my "to read" pile.I read Double Feature by Owen and can barely remember it, though I do remember it being okay.
    I've fallen behind with King a bit. Still have Gwendy's Button Box to read, too.

    I am reading Sleeping Beauties now.
    @Space Suicide , that's fucking awesome. You won't be disappointed.

    If you have a hard time getting into long books, Four Past Midnight and Different Seasons are both collections of 4 novellas. Different Seasons has Shawshank Redemption, Stand By Me (The Body,) and Apt Pupil. And Four Past Midnight has The Langoliers and Secret Window. And there are also more short story collections: Night Shift, Everything's Eventual, Just After Sunset, and Nightmares and Dreamscapes, among others.

    Stephen King books are just flat out my favorite fucking thing in the world, period.

    I just spent the last three or four months reading the whole DT series, stopping briefly to re-read IT.

    I just finished Book 7.

    I need to lie down.

    Man, I've got such a backlog of books right now it's crazy. It's on there but finding time to read is tough with a kid in middle school. Every damn night it's something, I swear.

    finished The Outsider... wow does that book start off strong and then quickly turns into complete garbage.

    It's almost like the first half and second half were written by completely different people.

    If you haven't already started the Dark Tower, try to read as many of his other books first--especially IT and The Stand--because of how many references there are to past works. It's not necessary, but there'll be a lot of subtle comments/nods that will make The Dark Tower that much more satisfying and enjoyable having the history of his worlds in the back of your mind.
