Connor's Stephen King Novel Consumption Thread

    You know, I have a ton of Stephen King books, but what sucks is that I have little time or motivation to read them. Therefore, I've created this thread to track my progress as I go through the numerous novels in my collection. I just started reading The Shining, and I have finished the first chapter. When I'm finished reading a novel, I may even give a review of it!

    I think you'll like it. Definitely let us know what you think. If you don't have a lot of time, try at least doing the shorter works. Thinner and Misery come to mind. Don't worry about not getting to them all -- seems like every year we all get busier with other things we need/want to do.

    So true about being busier and busier. I've read half as many books this year compared to last. There aren't enough hours in the day.

    I'm 91 pages into my copy, and the Torrance family has finally arrived at the Overlook. I hope they enjoy their stay...

    Finally reached 350. I'm not that fast of a reader, unfortunately. I didn't know Lloyd was in the book! I always loved him.

    This is one of my favorite books by SK. Didn't care for the Jack Nicholson movie version at all. He was way too over-the-top, and Danny and Wendy were just plain annoying!! Just my opinion.
