---girls and boys. I'm an old (on time and age) King's fan from Buenos Aires. First title I got was The Shining (first ed.in spanish),I think about 40 years ago. I fall in love,and didn't stop. I don't have all his titles, but major part. I read it only in English (not mi mother language), because it's only way to really appreciate his fantastic technique. and because Spaniard translations are crap. It's difficult, because the monster have a vocabulary of several thousand words. I manage to understand about 70/85%, but it's enough to follow the plot.

Hello, and welcome! I have a friend in Madrid who buys all her trashy romance books in English, so her husband (who doesn't read English) won't know she reads them :) I can pick out a bit of French, Spanish, German and Portuguese (because it looks similar to Sp./Fr.), but wish I knew enough to read an entire novel in any of them--you're fantastic!
