T is for TBR!
These are all of the Stephen King books I own that I need to read. I plan to start The Gunslinger next month for the #EpickaTetRead #TheDarkTowerChapterAWeek with @MinDea and @TricksyTails ! What should I read first after that?
Different Seasons
Gerald‘s Game
The Long Walk
The Talisman
Hearts in Atlantis
Just After Sunset
The Dune
The Gunslinger
The Tommyknockers
Rose Madder

GarthRanzz Out of everything there my recommendation is The Long Walk! 2y
Sweettartlaura I say The Talisman - Jack in The Talisman is most likely Jake in the Dark Tower, so it connects. (And if that doesn‘t make sense to you yet, it will 😉) 2y
PaperbackPirate @GarthRanzz The Bachman books I‘ve read so far are some of my favorite so I look forward to it. Thank you for the recommendation! 2y

PaperbackPirate @Sweettartlaura Should I read it before The Gunslinger? 2y
Sweettartlaura No, you don‘t have to. Not sure how familiar you are with it all, and don‘t want to spoil anything. Let‘s say this: there are other worlds than this. So who someone is in this world/what their journey is/what their fate is is NOT necessarily the same in another world. So knowing Jake‘s story won‘t interfere with reading Jack‘s, & vice versa. 2y
whippoorwill815 I would say The Long Walk and Different Seasons! I have yet to read The Talisman myself! 2y
TricksyTails I second @GarthRanzz ‘s suggestion! 😁👍 2y
PaperbackPirate I really want to read Different Seasons for The Body. Thank you for sharing your suggestions @whippoorwill815 ! 2y
PaperbackPirate Thank you @Sweettartlaura ! I think that was the perfect amount of information without being too spoilery! 😘 2y
Sweettartlaura Oooh, did you read it???😀 2y
PaperbackPirate @Sweettartlaura I didn‘t. But I started The Gunslinger & I think that bit of information makes me less anxious about not understanding what‘s going on. 2y
Sweettartlaura Ahhh, excellent! And if it makes you feel better, King claims to not have realized how it all ties together - all his work, not just the Dark Tower series - for at least two decades. So just sit back & enjoy each one for what they are. I‘m jealous you get to discover some of these for the first time 😍 2y

I made another trip to Russell Books, and this time I hit their vintage (and/or fancy) floor. I wanna get really interesting copies of REBECCA and THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN. Alas, there wasn't a REBECCA to be had, and the nicest HUCK was $55.

CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I love that bookstore! 2y
xicanti @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian I keep making excuses to go back! Tomorrow I'm probably gonna splash out there with my remaining vacation cash. 2y

So here's a question, especially for the #librarians and #writers and #academics out there. What is your favorite literary journal? Through my day job I have access to the library resources of a major research university. I'm thinking I should take advantage of that more and be able to read up-and-coming writers.

Anyone got a favorite #literaryjournal to share?

Lacythebookworm Granta and Tin House are my favs! 2y
DrexEdit @Lacythebookworm thanks! All these journals seem to be putting more stuff online these days. I'm hoping to find full access to a few of them in academic databases too! 2y

I received this tote as a gift from The Kenyon Review. I use it for books and I hang it on my office door as a reminder to my husband and son. Do they heed it? Of course not. 😒Oh well! 😊#bookbags #marchintoreading

Maybe this is love, I thought: losing the need to rush somewhere else.
