You guys are not going to believe this! I dropped my daughter and her friends off at the movie theatre near the mall today, and decided to look around while they watched the movie. We have a little Books A Million in the mall, so I walked in and had just started looking around when a really cute, young couple (around 18) walked in, and she said, "Oh, Doctor Sleep by Stephen King! Stephen King is the coolest person in the universe!" I laughed to myself - what are the chances! And no, I didn't say anything to them, because they were just too cute and in love and didn't want to talk to a middle-aged lady, I'm sure.
Cool coincidence! I wouldn't have been able to keep quiet.
Ditto. I love to see them with one of Stephen's books but I'm just overly happy to see anyone reading a book.

I have on occasion approached the reader and it is always a pleasant experience discussing their book and I don't hesitate to suggest other titles and authors, Mr. King's books being front and foremost.
