It's so sad when you can only pick one to take home and then you have to make the rest of them so sad!

These stray books try and jump in your arms and go home with you even after you tell them you can take all them home! LOL

I'm not really picky about next month's read....I'm still trying to finish Duma Key (grr).

About used books...we have great store around here. You can turn in your used books, get store credit for them and when you buy books, you get the club rate (1/2 the price of the used book). And of course, you can bring them back when you're done. Plus, they keep a record of what you purchased so you don't accidentally buy the same book twice.

I know what you all mean about bringing home more books...they're like strays that need homes, and I just can't resist!

My hubby won't let me go to used book stores and won't give me money at the thrift stores either unless it is to buy some thing we need not want. I am HORRIBLE when it comes to going "Oh look a King book" his answer is usually "Don't you have that one?"

Sounds ok to me. Why don't we do The Regulators for March and then The Dead Zone for April.

Nope! Just pick one of the two for next month and then we can do the other one for April and then we have killed two birds with one book, or I guess maybe one bird with two books!

My copy of Misery has been missing the cover for years now and many others are well on their way to almost needing to be replaced from the reading.

I agree. I've tattered at least one of my copies of his books (my original copy of IT is held together with a lot of tape and a couple of photocopied pages because they fell out and got lost).

I think it would be awhile before we completely run out of books to read, but we can also re read anything at anytime. That is what is so great, these stories never get old and there are so many that we won't be getting tired of them at all. If anyone else has any ideas for the March reading, we are still open for suggestions or we can take a vote or something for it.

I missed out on the February reading (I don't have Duma Key yet). I am up for pretty much anything in March. I haven't read the Dead Zone in a while and I do have The Regulators as well. Wonder when we will run out of reading material from Mr. King.....LOL.

I'm on page 128 or so and so far it's kinda weird (no surprise there!) but it's getting interesting! You'll get no spoilers from me! I read the book when I'm on my elliptical so I get in about 40 minutes every day. So far so good!
