    The Talisman has been calling to me again. Also The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and Blaze. And The Dark Tower! Has been almost 2 years since I took the last journey.

    Rereading IT right now. :)

    I forgot about The Gunslinger. It's been over twenty years since I read it and I've wondered if I should get the updated version. Do you prefer the original without the tweaks and polish? Skimom had something to say about this but I forgot. I think she said she preferred the original.

    Doc Creed - original all the way. As the words came to the Wordslinger- as written, no need to polish or tweak.

    I see some are mentioning The Talisman. Maybe if we can generate enough interest for the SKMB Book Discussion Group then we can select this as our book to reread.
