Can Stephen King’s son be as good as his father?

I just picked up Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill nom de plume for Joe Hillstrom King, Stephen King’s son. I’ve only managed to get through the first 20 pages without interruption but so far its pretty impressive. I’ll give a full review when I’m done. If you want to check it out, its 30% off at and 20% off at stores.

Looks just like Daddy

Let’s attempt to List Every Book You’ve EVER Read

I think it would be cool to have a thread where we list books we’ve read, and as we remember them we can come back and edit our list. We can also help each other figure out the names of books if we just remember the story, and use each others list to help remember. Anyways I’m going to start my own list, I’m sure it will take a while to remember most of them. If you participate you should keep your list in one post, and use other posts for discussion and such.

Recommend me a book

Looking to pick up an interesting read to look at in my spare time. I don’t have a hard time reading but I have ready _very_ few books since …. elementary school maybe. I seriously think the last book I read was one of the Harry Potter books.

I don’t have a specific genre I like, but maybe something crime related. I read a lot of non-fiction type stuff online like articles on cars, reviews, opinion based stuff etc.

I’d like to get something kind of short so that I can actually see that I’m making progress through the book.

What Are You Reading??? v.New

I just finished The Sun Also Rises by Hemingway
I just picked up for whom the bell tolls
I also wanted to get Haunted by that fight club guy
The Sun Also Rises was great.

Just finished Haunted. I only found it mediocore. Maybe I was expecting too much. Some of the short stories were really well done, but the overall connecting story did nothing for me.

Rereading Huxley’s Brave New World at the moment.
Boy’s Life by Robert R. McCammon
