Stephen King Project
I wanted an extra incentive to get myself out walking each day, so I started a subscription to Audible.com to listen to audiobooks while walking. I figured if I only listened to a good story while walking, then that would get me out walking to listen to the rest of it. Around the same time I made that decision, I had remembered reading a Rolling Stone Interview with Stephen King where he talked about his life and works. I had read a few of King’s books when I was in high school, but I decided his stories were becoming repetitive and gave up on his collection long ago. I decided to give him another shot by listening to his works in order they were published. I even plan on rereading the books that I read long ago to see what I think of them now. Finally, since there loves to be adaptations of King’s works, I’ll check out what I can.
