That sounds like an endeavor, Kathi! I am guessing, when you say you are at From a Buick 8, that you have not read anything beyond? Even so, that puts you well over three quarters of the way I would guess! I bet it is interesting to experience the progression of his style. Regarding King, I have read all but two, and I did not try to read them in any particular order, though for the last fifteen or so years, they have been in the order of publication. Yes, I was one to buy the book on publication day :-) Now, like you, I buy only the e-book. One can only hold so many books on one's shelves, and mine are too full as it is. Maybe its a sign of old age, but I would rather read a book and have it gone rather than keep a read book on my shelf, so e-readers are a boon of epic proportions. I too have not bothered with graphic novelizations or screenplays, though I do read and love King's non-fiction works regarding his life and craft. I would recommend them when you reach the end of his fiction.
I hope you continue to enjoy your literary journey, and that you fill us in periodically on how it is going!
