    "The Shining"
    My third SK read, I think third published too!
    Hands down, the scariest thing I have ever read, bar none!
    Picture this: I'm visiting a friend in a very large hospital in a private room. My friend and I are the only (live?) people in the room. However, it's a hospital, there are all kinds of folks to'n an fro'n all the time just outside the room's open door. My friend is sleeping, resting after surgery, still it's a hospital, there are mobs of people in this place.
    Cut to "The Shining". Each chapter had it's own

    skimom2 Just moseyin' through...

    I read the chapter "Inside 217" while sitting between my mom and my dad on the couch--true story. I couldn't read it alone in my room, especially when I noticed that the gooshy part started on pg 217 of my copy *shudder*

    After killer technical dificulties, apologies!
    Thread: 'Whew! "The Shining" continues.
    Whew! Again, thought I'd lost the whole thing, and, if only for me, I was just getting to (again, if only for me) the best part of this tale.
    sooo,
    each chapter has it's own sort of previewing chapter title.
    I disremember the chapter number or page number, however, the pages just before this chapter placed Danny 'Doc' Torrance on a second floor hallway.
    Mind you, Doc had had trouble in one of the second

    Dern, tech diffs again...

    second floor of the Overlook Hotel.
    When I turned the page to that new chapter titled "Outside Room 217", although in a crowded hospital rememder. When I read this chapter's title, in my mind I let out the loudest scream of my entire life, DON'T GO IN THERE!!!
    Also, at the same time, something I had never experienced before or since. I was dressed casually, blue jeans and a tee shirt and sitting in plastic chair. I swear, I could actually feel the hair
