A man of principals.

Did you read The Little Sisters of Eluria in Everything's Eventual? I really enjoyed that

anyone else reading, or read, his current novel Under The Dome?

i'm almost halfway through it at the moment, and loving it. listening to the unabridged audiobook (read superbly by Raśl Esparza) rather than "reading" per se, but still ... it's much more time efficient.

Still no sign of a UK book club....having got into 'Under The Dome', I am really keen to pick up his other books!

I am erring on picking them up second hand/cheap!

Most of King's are £2-4 in the 2nd hand shop I frequent. Older ones easily a couple of squid. King books are one thing you do see in general used bookstores.

Ste7en - forgot this thread. Haven't read Everything's Eventual yet, and although I managed to find Wolves in my local as I thought I would (months ago), I still haven't read it!

charity shops will be your best bet I reckon - picked up a fair few of his as well as Dean R Koontz and others too

what I found best though was to get them from the library then if I really liked it, buy my own copy

I only pay full price for books when I have book tokens - other than that was always charity shop, Tesco or Asda

The Eyes of the Dragon
From a Buick 8
Hearts in Atlantis
The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
Lisey's Story

Just looked at that book offer, and I've not read these. Although I have From a Buick 8 and Lisey's Story sitting on my shelf.

Why bump this thread when there is a massive King thread already?

Because the 'massive' King thread already running was discussing King stuff that is away from the main novels!
