Still only a few chapters in. But so far I enjoy it.

Menet. Up until the past few years I hadn't kept up with King over the past decade or a bit more. Got a Nook and now totally caught up to now

Probably. They've made The Dark Tower into a movie, with a great cast, but it's not getting good reviews. The Dark Tower trailer

Good morning, Mac & Vlawde:

I went and seen the movie.  :down:  Don't waste your time or money.  I can't believe Stephen King gave his approval.  It was a complete rewrite.   Utter nonsense..   Seven or eight books into a single movie?   Get the drift?  lol

I received a Kindle a few years ago, Vlawde.  I just can't and I made a heroic attempt but I enjoy book stores..I imagine soon enough they will become obsolete.  Yeah.  I'm a tree killer.

Stephen King wrote an introduction for one of Gaiman graphic novels. I am reading the ghost stories of M.R. James right now

I was in Schuler's yesterday and couldn't find him.  When I consulted with "Information" she told me that James wrote graphic novels.  Are we on the same page, jwc?  They didn't have any that I could take a look at.

M. R James was a 19th century writer of ghost stories. It is possible that some of his stories have been adapted into graphic novels as was Poe. His stories can be difficult to find in stores, however I purchased two volumes of his stories from Amazon in the Penguin editions. I apologize if i was not clear.

No need to apologize, jwc.  A book is a book is a book.

Here is a fun factoid:  Until he was 18, Woody Allen read virtually nothing but comic books.  He sold one-liners for 10 cents each to gossip columnists.

I use to have a fair collection of Wolverine comics that I shared with my nieces.  No appreciation.  I haven't seen them since.

Reading a Lynda La Plante novel, have to say that it took a few of her books to get into the style but i'm enjoying this one! It's called 'silent scream'.
