The Entertainment Weekly with my story in it.
I'm from Brazil but I've been a US citizen since 1988. My father is a constant reader. He was an accountant. In his spare time he read, a LOT. Because of him I developed a taste for reading. He read all sorts of books including SK. I read several genres along with my dad, but it was SKs novels that intrigued me the most. I was just a kid when I read "The Shining", "Pet Cemetary", "Christine", and "Cujo". I moved to the US when I was 20 and started reading books in English.
I have no access to books in Portuguese (my native language), but my dad sends me some of his old books once in awhile.
I have a copy of "Pet Cemetery" in Portuguese that is falling apart it is so old! I've read it several times. The last time I read it the pages kept falling on my lap. The pages are yellowed out and smelly but it is precious to me This book is one of my most favorite SK items ever, not just because it is one of of my favorite books but also because my dad's fingerprints are on it; because dad sent it to me with love; because it smells like the bottom shelf where dad kept all his books; because part of my dad is in that book.
I'm thousands of miles away from my dad, and he has terminal lung cancer now. I'll never get rid of this book...
In no particular order:
My beat up, taped together 11th paperback printing of IT, the first book I bought by SK. It sits on the same shelves as my 1/1 collectibles do.
Under the Dome which was signed in Atlanta, GA by SK while I stood in front of him and drooled like an idiot. The first sign I got from him.
11/22/63 with was also signed in Atlanta, GA by SK while I again stood in front of him and drooled like an idiot.
