He is also one of my favorites, second only to Anne Rice. I have not read all his books either, even though I'm such a big fan. I have read The Green Mile, Cujo, Christine, Pet Sematary, Needful Things, Misery, Dreamcatcher, Carrie, The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon, Duma Key, Bag of Bones, The Gunslinger (Dark Tower 1), and many short stories. My favorites are Bag of Bones and Duma Key. There is going to be an It read-a-long later in the summer and I plan on participating in that. I do own all of his books, with the exception of a few. He is an awesome author!

"And for those of you wondering, yes I like 60-something year old white men" - Hahahahaha! That was funny!

I love Stephen King too! I have read so many of his books.
I used to own about 25 of them but cleaned off my shelves and gave them all to my niece for Christmas a couple years ago.

What a great pick for 'K'! I've only read Under the Dome and really enjoyed it. I own several other King books but just haven't gotten around to reading them yet. I have seen many of the movies bast on his works and usually enjoyed them, but haven't seen anywhere near as many as you have. You are a real fan!

Love Stephen King. I haven't read nearly enough of his books. I'd like to change that.
