What book would you suggest by Mr. King to read seeing as Summer is coming quickly? Something that has that summer feel to it, ya know? Bag of bones I feel is more of a winter read. (saving it for this winter to read it)

I tend to read collections during the summer months.
Different Seasons is a favorite as is Four Past Midnight

Summer? What's that? S'posed to warm up this weekend, but we still have snow cover, total snow cover, but I put an "X" on the calendar and I'll call this weekend "summer" in case in the event that we somehow skip the season.
The Portage Canal is still iced over although an ice-breaker made a pass and looks like 5th Street in downtown Calumet is almost clear of snow. May flowers? Not anytime soon.

I would give the Mist a read for the summer. To me it has a summer feel to it.
Last summer after a bad thunderstorm, we lost electricity for two days....and I could not help but to think of this story! :biggrin2:

haunted speaks true...'the stand' feels all sorta summery...
same with 'firestarter', ''the long walk', 'the running man', and Dt 1-2-3-and 4, and, oddly, 'geralds game' ...i'd also second the idea of short stories...all, i think, because all these have a sort of cinematic, b-movie type feel that epitomizes summer thrills
...even tho i've only read it once (so far) i can see UTD as that, too

Try The Stand, Different Seasons, The Tommyknockers, Everything's Eventual, and IT to get a huge summer feel.
