        Thank you so much! In my circle of friends I'm the only real King fan, although I'm trying to recommend some books to them. I figured this was a good spot to get my King-geekism on. Everyone is so nice on here.

    It is extremely difficult for me to pinpoint my favorite movies and books, so I just listed some that came to me that I really enjoyed. My favorite genre has always been horror, with sci-fi and fantasy not far behind.

    I find it is hard to be a horror fan because honestly most films that fall into the category are poorly done (especially now when everything is a remake or a sequel). I find horror novels, mainly those of Stephen King, actually satisfy more often than horror movies do. I think a major reason for this is the essence of horror takes place in the mind, and with the written word we can get inside a character's head. It is hard to pull this off in a movie.

    I'm still just in the beginning stages of my King discovery. I did read Skeleton Crew as a kid, and later The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon in high school. both of which left an impression. It wasn't until I read Cell a few years ago that I really got the bug. I'm looking forward to getting to some of the classics that tend to be fan favorites, especially It, The Stand, Pet Sematary, and the mammoth The Dark Tower series.

    So far I have read:

    • Skeleton Crew ("The Raft" and that Monkey on the book's cover still freak me out)
    • The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
    • Cell
    • Under the Dome
    • The Long Walk (I loved this book!)
    • Roadwork
    • Rage
    • Carrie
    • The Shining (Amazing book)
    • Doctor Sleep (Very good sequel)
    • Just After Sunset
    • Night Shift
    • The Colorado Kid (And how is "Haven" based on this again???)
    • 'Salem's Lot (An all out vamp-fest - awesome ride!)
    • Joyland
    • 11/22/63
    • On Writing (audiobook still counts, right?)
    • Danse Macabre
    • Gerald's Game
