How's it going Lindsey?
I'm now about to start book 3! Everyone was right that the reading experience picks up on book 2. I know know about using "Posse Gunslinger bullets" for replacements! Why thinking of the police as "posse" amused me so much, I just don't know but I did chuckle.

So there's some confusion on the order to read the books, next is The Wast Lands but then is it Wolves or Wizard?

Thanks for the encouragement, I'm also reading my way through Revival, Mr. King is an engrossing author!

Cheers,
Lindsay

The Waste Lands
Wizard and Glass (my personal favorite :D)
Wolves of the Calla
Song of Susannah (my least favorite)
The Dark Tower

It took me a few readings, but The Gunslinger finally 'caught' me last year :) Up until that point, it was a grind to get through it.
