    I wish I had the book with me so I could find the exact references, but I remember a comment that alluded to Christine. And one of the roadies was wearing a Judas Coyne t-shirt! Loved the reference to Joe Hill's Heart-Shaped Box! ;-D

    niggle \ˈni-gəl\ verb, to worry or annoy; a slight feeling of something (such as doubt)

    I think I've never heard this word before. Thankee, Sai Siggy!!!

    Good evening.

    One that's niggling me: is there something about Brady's hamburger and the hamburger in Al's Diner in 11/22/63? IDK...there's a feeling...

    I love when you talk dirty.

    ...and of course the clown mask...but the one thing that caught my eye, is the fact that the "smiley" on the book covers-did not have sunglasses on....

    I loved the Christine and It references just a few pages apart ... reference to the novel/movie versions though, which might imply that this happens on keystone earth. Did anyone notice Holly channeling Bev's father from It? "I worry about people you know. I worry very much."

    Kermitfrog19 was an obvious one.

    One of the things I like about ebooks is the ability to make notes on the references when you see them and easily get them later . . . but no worries, I do buy the hardcover as well, because the ebooks don't look so good on my bookshelf.

    A bit of fun for us long time constant readers. Like finding little gems as you ride along the journey.

    As I recall there was no similarity between Bradys hamburger and Als in 11/22/63. Loved the other references. Thats the SK universe I know and LOVE.

    The only burger I recall is the one his mother ate. Was there another? That one definitely reminds me of the way Henry killed Mike Hanlon's dog in "It" though. Thinking about it, what he planned was pretty similar to what Henry did.

    A reference that a few people caught: the boy band "Round Here" is mentioned in Doctor Sleep as Abra Stone's favorite band.

    Hodges thinks of Holly as a "Revival-Preacher" a few times. A reference to Revival since it seems to be about a preacher?

    SK mentions revival a couple of times in the book. I thought it a definite reference to the upcoming novel!
