Because, Apparently, I've Learned Nothing From Past Failures ...

When I was a teenager, the only thing that was cool to read - or at least to be seen reading in public - was horror. So I went through a bit of a dark phase that included several Stephen King epics. Not all, though, which is why Book Chick City's Stephen King Challenge caught my eye. Not that I need to be joining another challenge, but hey, why not, right? Plus, I went ahead and bought Under the Dome since I was never able to get it read before the library demanded I return it. So, there you go. I'm joining the challenge. Wanna join me?
Since I can't remember which King books I've read and which I haven't, I'm going to make a tentative list. Six is the minimum required for the challenge; since I'm not sane enough to stick with that and I'm not quite enough of an overachiever to go for 12, I'm going to aim for 10. We'll see how I do.
  • On Writing
  • Needful Things
  • Under the Dome
  • The Shining
  • Carrie
  • The Tommyknockers
  • The Stand
  • Duma Key
  • Insomnia
  • Firestarter
I can't wait to get started! Who else is in?

  1. I devoured Stephen King when I was young as well... good luck! His novels are great, but they're also looong! Joe read Under the Dome & really enjoyed it.
