BIG SCORE!!!!!!!

Knowing that you collect, I will keep an eye out if I ever come across anything that fits.  

I have sometimes wondered how many evil deeds have been done where the idea came from one of his books...

Thanks!

But there really isn't too much I need at this point. I'm hoping to get all the early Doubleday books (Carrie, Salem's Lot, The Shining, Night Shift, and The Stand) as signed 1st/1st's, very slowly over time.

I've really only heard good things, but it will be awhile before I get there as I have a few others that I am wanting to read or reread before then.

Was actually just about to share something to this thread, incoming...

Still a few holes to fill, but a lot of them are in the mail already and heading in my direction.

An almost complete SK 1st/1st collection

Gobsmacking collection. Wow!

It's a beautiful thing.

First edition/First Printing... so generally the rarest of the rare especially for the older books. The near fine 1st/1st copy of The Gunslinger I bought (not pictured) is 1 of 10 000 in existence and the copy of Rage I bought is the only book King as taken out of publication due to the subject mater, very rare and hard to find.

Just looked up Rage, had never heard of it.

Warren, I won't ask you how you got it or how much it cost. A lot of hard work presumably has gone into this collection.

For the distant-distant future I hope you have a Will, cause it looks like a valuable collection. Wouldn't want it falling into the wrong hands.

Currently reading : Billy Summers (like a lot of others) and really enjoying it.

I have also read few of his books.

Desperation (my favorite - read it 6 times already)

Dreamcatcher (my least favorite)

Full dark, No stars (Amazing stories)

11.22.63 (Long? Yes. But worth a read)

Everything's Eventual (Except a couple of stories aside, pretty good collection. 'The Road Virus Heads North' my favorite, also a cool title)

Duma key (my 2nd favorite. Read it thrice)

Night Shift (Enjoyable. Especially, 'The last rung on the ladder' close to my heart)

That's about it.

If my daughter takes to King when she's a bit older they'll go to her, if not they are getting buried with me

Ah Duma Key, I recommend that book to everyone, and I generally tell non-King readers to start there. It's just such an amazing story and has such a great feel to it.

No doubt about that. Also, it is generally not widely recommended by people, which I find surprising. It is really amazing.

We've all talked about our favorites but what about bottom of the barrel least favorite?

Yuvraj mentioned Dreamcatcher (definitely near the bottom for me). My most painful read was Tommyknockers. OMG. So bloated and overwritten. I remember King going off on pointless tangents that added absolutely nothing to the story. The book could've been edited a good 40%.

I remember that in a bookshop, I picked up 'Tommyknockers'. I read 70-80 pages or so and found it intriguing, tbh. Alien spacecraft stuff. Great.

But then, I bought 'Dreamcatcher' coz I really liked its cover, without reading it whatsoever. Truly, you can't judge a book by its cover. Lesson learned the hard way. Lol.

[Btw, there is an easter egg in here. A book name. Comment fast. ]
