Stephen King: The Stand


I’m reading this book again, I read it a long time ago. But a new, uncut version came out. (The preface says Steven King’s editor suggested he edit the first version.) It is super good. It’s over 3000 pages on my e-reader. It was good before, and it’s good again. I can’t put it down.

Have you read it? Pretty much everyone’s died off now, Trashcan Man just blew up the fuel tanks. The second half has begun or is ready to begin. I can’t wait to read more today.

It’s been a good week, so far. It’s rained every day, but sunny most of the time. Sunny beach lunch hours every day. On my walk in the dark this morning, there was lightning, but now it looks clearish. I gotta remember to buy coffee, I’m getting dangerously low on coffee. There’s tons of fancy coffee out there, but deep down inside, I like Cafe Bustello the best. Don’t tell my wife.

Have a great day!

  1. Not a Stephen King fan Mark but my daughter has read every book he’s written Been raining most of the week here also, I love it! I know what you mean about coffee, I don’t worry about most things but coffee, NEVER run out of coffee ☕

  2. Hi Mark! Yes, I read it when it first hit the shelves, back when I was a teenager, in 1978! Actually it was probably around 1980-1983 when I read it and many of his books. I had the huge paperback version. Now I have the giant hardback, uncut version on my shelf and just recently said I want to read that again. You reminded me, thanks. I need something to read because I finished the Silo series by Hugh Howey, also very long, and nowhere near as good as The Stand. Have a great day!
