I just started Stephen King’s 11/22/63. So far I really enjoy the book. Here are my two ‘teaser’ sentences:

“Get in touch with your, you know feminine side. Look at me the way women look at other women when they’re judging age.”

Weekly Quote: Stephen King

Posted on Updated on

Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.

― Stephen King

This was the message outside a school. Hopefully, students saw the board and read the entire summer. Lets hope the community was motivated to pick up a book to read this summer too!

Stephen King Quotation: Forget all your tasks and read

Posted on Updated on

A successful novel should interrupt the reader’s life, make him or her miss appointments, skip meals, forget to walk the dog.

– Stephen King

I like this quote, because a good book really should cause you to forget any tasks and focus fully on the book that has grabbed your attention. I’ve read late into the night as I tell myself one more chapter which quickly turns into finishing the book at two in the morning. What book held your attention so greatly that you forgot any tasks or appointments?
