Stephen King Challenge Update

I had started this challenge a while back, but never really looked at what I've read and what I want to read. It dawned on me that I really need to see how far I've come and how far I have to go (which I know is far). I found a list of all his works and went through it, taking out unfinished works and early hard to find stuff.
Red = Read
Blue = Want to and will read
Green = Seen Movie (but have not read book, and probably will read soon rather than later)
Purple = Read Book and Seen Movie
Since the list is massive, I've only listed the books/movies that are on my radar at the moment. The other stuff is in the TBR in the distant future.
Richard Bachman's Published Books "Richard Bachman" is a pseudonym that King used until Bachman's true identity was discovered by fans, after which he only published one more Bachman novel.

Pretty sad I know. I've only read 11 of his books so far, I've seen more movies! Pathetic. I have a job ahead of me. And to think, these are the ones I WANT to read.

I have read ALL of those before 1992(but throw in Girl who loved Tom Gordon)
I think you left out "The Tommy Knockers", I didn't see it there. It was one of my favorites.
I loved "The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon" Also loved "Misery" and "Pet Cemetery"

Good luck, it looks like fun!
