    Reading: Joyland by Stephen King

    Enjoying it very much. I am a big fan of King, and his recent stuff has been top notch. Looking forward to Dr. Sleep (sequel to The Shining) later this year.

    Short Story of this post.

    I've read It from King. Thought it was outstanding. Read the first book or two of that monthly series of books he wrote 20 years or so ago. Forget what that was. But enjoyed them as well, just fell behind and couldn't get back to them.

    (I'm enjoying Under the Dome on tv!)

    I read IT when I was 11 or so. Very good book.

    The Green Mile rocked, and it also had one of the best screen adaptations.

    I'm enjoying Under the Dome, too, but it is completely different than the book. Still enjoyable. Just different.

    11/22/63 is a recent favorite of his. Damn near perfect book, and it has a little treat for IT fans.

    How about a nod to my avatar. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream is the best non-fiction book I've ever read.

    I love King. Right at the top of my favorite writers.

    I just can't get into reading in the summer. The kids love being outside and watching them grow up is cool unlike my eldest who grew up in Germany. I am going to hit those books you have suggested Dalyn sometime later on this year.

    I was looking that list of books you posted in this thread.

    Battlefield Earth - the original, not the re-edited version was a great story until it got really stupid.
    Firefly - Piers Anthony - pretty decent for his odd writing style
    Weaveworld - Clive Barker - an underrated book that is very good

    Growing up I liked Jay Bennett, Mable Ester Allen and don't laugh, Phyllis Whitney. During the day I played sports like normal kids, but at night, I would curled up on the couch reading until I fell asleep.

    The staple was Allen and Carolyn Keene's Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, until I persuaded the librarian to allow me to read Jay Bennett books at 13.

    Also I read a lot of King's short stories under his pseudonym Bachman, which includes the classics Running Man, The Walk et al.

    I like barker. Most consider him a horror author. I found his books to be more fantasy than anything.

    Barker is pretty awesome. Almost met him at Horrorfind last year, but he had to cancel due to his bad visit with the dentist.

    Do any of you like Joe Lansdale? What an excellent writer.
