I know I'm a little behind the times here, as most of you have read most of King's work and now enjoy other authors as well, but do any of you still have quite a bit of King's work left to read for the first time? And if so, how do you deal with reading other authors, when you have so much left by King that you want to read? Do you skip around a little from time to time, to take a break from King & save a few of his titles for later? Do you read a couple books at the same time, maybe one at a certain part of the day and the other at another part? I read a lot of true crime & history type stuff, and while reading that stuff I've found it very easy to read a fiction book at the same time, as long as I make sure to keep up with all the characters and even keep notes if needed. A good example of this is my current situation. I've been back into reading for a few months now, after many years of simple non interest in books, & as far as King books go there are many I either need to re read since it's been years, read for the 1st time, or start over since I never finished them. I just finished The Stand for my 1st time recently, and one hugely popular book that I still have not read, is IT. I'm currently reading Strangers by Koontz, along with a 900+ pager called The Manson File by Nikolas Schreck, but I find it hard to enjoy other authors, when there are so many King titles left to dig into. It's not impossible, but I'm just finding it hard to truly enjoy other fiction authors right now, but at the same time I'd love to mix it up some and not read all the King works straight through, 1 after the other, and draw it out some & make them last. If anyone on here is like me and still has plenty of unread work by King, would you suggest sticking with King and enjoying the crazy ride, or mixing it up some when you are recommended other authors & titles? I want to enjoy "Strangers" as much as possible but I cant help feeling like I'm wasting time or something... Ya know?
