The Waste Lands
Wow, I have taken a long break since SXSW in March! Since then I have read or finished Lisey's Story, The Bachman Books, Danse Macabre, Cycle of the Werewolf, The Eyes of the Dragon, Different Seasons, Pet Sematary, and Misery. I'm currently reading The Talisman but having a hard time getting into it.
Non-SK reads included Don Kirshner: The Man with the Golden Ear, Tearing Down the Wall of Sound: The Rise and Fall of Phil Spector, a trashy Jackie Collins paperback, and Haunted Heart: The Life and Times of Stephen King.

This book in general is an interesting metaphor for what we can achieve through self belief.
