Reading Bonanza

Lisey's Story
by Stephen King

Stephen king is the reason I read so many books. In his biography/treatise On Writing, he suggested anyone interested in writing should be reading at least 100 books per year. I agree that my creativity has increased dramatically since I started doing that.
Anyone that think King writes nothing but horror are truly missing out on some great emotional talse he produces. This book follows the widow of famous writer Scott Landon some two years after his death. It deals with the love that conquers all, the life of the famous, and the emotional toll/cost of being a creative genius.
It was a great book, but do not read it expectiong Christine or the like. For goodness sake, Nicholas Sparks wrote the cover blurb.
