    The complete version of "The Stand" by Stephen King. It was almost 1400 pages if I remember correctly. It was one of those books, that when you put it down, you were always wondering what would happen next.


    The funny thing of it is, one evening many years later, Stephen King come up to me and struck up a conversation. We talked for about 5-10 minutes, and I didn't know who he was until afterwards someone told me.

    I love The Stand. I've forgotten how much I enjoyed it, Thanks for the memory. Was it really Stephen King? I've always wondered what his dreams must be like.

    Coyotes love rodents!!! Rodents make the same sound as that guys boots! I hope the guy went inside and got that dog a bone!

    I have enjoyed many books, poetry too, but a book that comes to mind was called "the treatment and the cure" far cry from a classic and I believe out of print, but very factual, tongue in cheek look from the inside of institutional life. I also have a treasured copy of the Rubiat of Omah Khiam (please excuse if I have not  used the correct spelling

    LAZY MAN'S GUIDE TO ENLIGHTMENT.  When I was in college I bought 13 copies and gave them to people.  Also I like One Minute Manager.  Also I like People Of The Lie. And so many more.  I love books and the ability to read, since I had a very difficult time learning how to read.

    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, ... And Ladies of the Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer and The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara G. Walker.

    Any cooking book by Fanney Craddock,
