Institute | Stephen King
post image

Feels a little like cheating as I always read King‘s books as soon as they come out. But time allows for audio. So far so good /)

Kaylamburson Definitely not cheating! The brain still has to process the information, and any reading in any format that you enjoy is a good thing! 1w
AmyG No cheating. My favorite audiobook was a King one....Insomnia. And how great is The Institute? I loved this book. (edited) 1w

Waiting for the rest of my group on our annual shopping trip. We hit 3 book stores and I bought 10 books. Eeeeek. I should have been Christmas shopping.

JenlovesJT47 Is it just me or do you find a million things you want to buy for yourself when you‘re Christmas shopping? And they have such great deals! Seems like a cruel joke! 😆😪😬 2w
