Happy Birthday Stephen King!

stephen-kingToday one of my favorite authors, Stephen King, turns 69 and I’d like to celebrate this birthday and the next by attempting to read all of his fictional novels within a year!

If my research is correct, I believe this is about 66 books including the 11 collections, and each collection ranges between 4 to 24 stories.

Can this be done? Has anyone done this before?

I could feel daunted by the sheer number of books and their length, but one of the things I love about Stephen King is the flow of his work and how easy it is to become completely invested in the story. I really couldn’t help myself and already began reading on September 1st, thusfar I’ve finished Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot and  The Shining. I’m feeling really positive about finishing before his next birthday!
