That's the very last King book I ever read. It was a brilliant read but the movie scared the living crap out of me. Never could back to his stuff after that.
Ziva said…
Oh, that's a great idea, I need something lighthearted to read. See, M's leaving for a few days and I'll be all alone with a ton of work to do and all work and no play makes Ziva a dull girl.

Never read any of his books. I have seen most the movies. <- Horrible to admit I know but true. I love the idea of this photo.

I'm a big King fan. Read almost everything he's written. And that movie had me on the edge of my seat.
nonamedufus said…
Some of the movies missed the mark. Nothing compares to the original books.
Lauren said…
Perfect choice for shiny. The Shining is a great book if you like scary stuff. King is also a masterful writer.

I'm replying to your comment because I'm having trouble logging into Disqus on blogger sites. I hope they fix the problem.

Damn Disqus. Love King.

Have you read his latest book? My husband is reading it. He loves it. I started reading it. But it's hard to read the same book while my husband is holding it.

Hello fellow participant,

Huge King fan - but never read that book. Gotta admit the movie is a classic.

I may have to change your name from Dufus to Goofus!
Laughing Mom said…

Lauren said…
Hey, you're changing everyone's name today.

Yes, I am. Signed: Princess Running Water Gonzalez

I love his early novels...The Stand, The Shining, It. He really is the master of the "can't put down" stuff.
nonamedufus said…
Thank you ma'am.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, ha, well thank you. Beats the prince of sheen, I suppose.
nonamedufus said…
I hope I can live up to your expectations.
nonamedufus said…
Something wrong with your plumbing, Linda?
nonamedufus said…
I read 11/22/63 back in March. Is that the one you're talking about? Loved it. Kind of different for King.
Lauren said…
That's the one!
Paula Wooters said…
Great! Now I'm going to have nightmares tonight! Thanks, Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
Good thing you've got Henry and your axe to keep you safe.
Indigo Roth said…
Aaaaaaand... we're off! 1 down, 29 to go! Can't argue with this one! Early movie copy of the book, I guess? HEEEEEEEERE'S JOHNNY!
nonamedufus said…
Oh man that scene had me on the edge of my seat. Red Rum, Red Rum.
ladyV said…
never read that book before, i'm too scared. welcome to day 1 and what a way to start!
Nicky said…
I loved that book and nearly took a picture of it too... great minds, mon ami!
nonamedufus said…
It's a classic horror story.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it's all down hill from here.
Barb said…
OMG that movie creeped me out!
WHAT AN AWESOME IDEA! I absolutely love what you did.... and The Shining? SUPER amazing too!
Jamie Baker said…
What's that they say? Unstable minds think alike? Except that I'm a 'fraidy cat and can only handle a more friendly Shining. :)
Margaret said…
hee hee!!!! well, SOMEBODY had to do it, right?
Cheryl P. said…
Very clever of you dufus! You are off to an awesome start.
mike said…
Very nice, and a favourite book of mine. I remember how that book (and movie) creeped me out. In the edition that I read, the scene where Danny finally enters room 217 happened on page...217! Coincidence?
nonamedufus said…
Hard to imagine but the book was even better.
nonamedufus said…
It was the first thing that came to mind. And I've heard you should always go with your first thought, so...
nonamedufus said…
I think it's "fools seldom differ" but same thing.
nonamedufus said…
It had to be me.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Cheryl. I thought it was a great way to start out.
nonamedufus said…
Oooo...freaky. But that'd be just like King wouldn't it.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
