    My wife and I went to a thrift store she likes last Saturday. While she was off doing whatever she does, I checked out the books section. They did not have ONE Stepehn King book! No paperbacks, no hardcovers, nothing. I was shocked.

    I just picked up a copy of Ghost Story by Peter Straub. With the reread of Cujo complete I am ready to dig in!

    I'm going to have to check our's out then. I just read somewhere that he's got a new story (maybe a short) but it's an ebook. I still don't have an e-reader. It's something about Loch ness? I'm forgetful, so sorry.

    yes I think you're right. I have my Dads old hand me down kindle and it works just fine.

    Ghost Story is, I think, Straub's best novel. Enjoy!

    We can give him the benefit of the doubt - sometimes libraries will sell off their old books on a bargain table for a buck or two. (But there should be a stamp inside that says something - darn - I cannot recall the word but it starts with R - maybe just "Removed"???) :m_curious: :m_thinking:

    There is a penalty for early withdrawal!

    But seriously I had a couple and now they are gone - I probably donated them to a charity or sold them at a used book store. I may be wrong about that word - perhaps it did not actually start with R after all.

    I have a good one called "The Hypochondriac's Guide to Life. and Death." by Gene Weingarten with an intro by Dave Barry
    It's a pretty good book - quite funny!
    (I just checked and there are no stamps on it anywhere but I am positive I did NOT steal it!) :no_pig:

    Maybe we should let the 'Library Poleethman' be the judge of that........
