My latest purchases were for my kindle: The Shining; Carrie; Salem's Lot. Also, I pre-ordered the hard copy Dr. Sleep. The selling point for me was that Doc grew up to be alcoholic like his dad. The writing about recovery is some of the best I've read (I don't think I've read more powerful writing about alcoholism, including Long Day's Journey Into Night by Eugene O' Neal. One thing I like about Dr. Sleep is that it has redemption, rather than hopeless despair. I am currently passing the book around to friends in my network who are also alkies in recovery (sorry Stephen, but hey, most people will have to re-read your other stuff too; I did). I have to wonder if writers mind, if you own a copy, if you loan it out. I think that, if you have a friend who can't afford to buy one I would not mind because the writer wants to make that connection, & I don't think SK minds either. I am re-reading The Shining, which I haven't read in decades & am freshly floored by how well written it is. Truly a wonderful book. And I have to re-read Salem's Lot this week because that one truly scared me witless so that I didn't want to be alone. Wonderful reading for October!
Carrie and Christine DVD.
Blaze softcover, UK version.
Bought The Shining and Pet Semetary on Bluray!! Woohoo!!
The Shining, 1997 miniseries on DVD.
Not really a new item (I've had it for a while) but very neat!
The (almost) mythical F&G for Grant's Gunslinger:
This is the only pre-publication version of the Grant Gunslinger that I know of.
My hubby bought me a first edition Wastelands and a first edition My Pretty Pony for my birthday. I was shocked $60 for the two.
Limited signed shivers VII came in the mail today. Must start reading today.
Three books in one, Carrie, The Shining and Salem's Lot for $25 at Barnes and Noble. It looks like an old school book from the 1800s. It's a pretty neat classic looking hardcover. I thought it was a good deal for that price. Thought it would be an interesting piece to the collection.
