I've got a book shelf that has all of my hardcovers and a few soft covers.  I've also got shelves built into my closet, on each side, that have lots of books on them.

Ok, what's your opinions on this ?. I am currently reading the Dark Tower series again. Now I have read some chaps prefered order of reading that intersects in the order that a number of SK's other novels should be read, for example Gunslinger followed by The Drawing of the Three then The Stand ect, ect. The reasoning being that it is the introduction of certain characters that happens are better explained.....interesting concept that I am going to attempt.

I just read them as they were released. I originally read King novels in 1987, so I read everything he had from October 1987 to about May 1988 on and off. So then the Dark Tower just had two releases, but I don't think a copy The Drawing of the Three was released in the UK until 1989 on Sphere Books.

This is mine:

Read Salem's Lot and possibly The Stand before hitting The Dark Tower.  Then Blast through those 8 books.  As you read further into his catalogue later on, you'll realize that 90% of his books have some sort of connection to The Dark Tower.

I've got Bag of Bones, Lisey's Storey, Just After Sunset, Skeleton Screw, Nightmares & Dreamscapes left to go.   Hopefully be able to get them all finished before The Institute releases in October?

A little off topic maybe, but Apple just signed a deal to create a TV series based on Lisey's Story. it'll be written by King and star Julianne Moore.

I've read "the "Dark Tower series" including "the Wind Through the Keyhole".  I've liked them, and had no problems understanding anything in them.

I've now read and twice re-read a great King novella called "A Good Marriage," from Full Dark No Stars.  Suspenseful story about a woman who discovers evidence that her husband might be a notorious serial killer.  (Bad movie adaptation with Anthony LaPaglia and Joan Allen.)

Hey I have a question. A woman I spoke to briefly in a book store mentioned this to me and I was wondering if it was actually true. I"m not a Stephen King expert so I don't know. Anyway, she said that after his accident where he was almost killed(in late 90's I think) he started to use a lot of swear words in his books. She said he didn't do that much before then. It was like the accident had some sort of negative effect on his brain and he  became vulgar. Is there any truth to that?

Currently reading Finders Keepers, just finished Mr. Mercedes I've already read The Outsider, so a little backwards.

I really appreciate the focus on character development in these later works.  If you haven't yet read Duma Key, I highly recommend it!

ETA - I have always loved Stephen King unapologetically.  But I've been on a kick since a short hospital stay when I needed long reads!

Not at all King has always used profane language throughout his whole career.
