I Want...

Have you heard of Joe Hill? He is the son of Stephen King and has published 2 books so far. I didn't realize that Stephen King had begat children that were authors and when I found out, I got a hard-on that was 2 inches long and didn't go away for 3 days. I read his first book, Heart-Shaped Box and really liked it. I just got 20th Century Ghosts today and am taking my time reading it up.

I read somewhere that a signed, first edition copy of Stephen King's first book sold for around 10 grand. You can get a signed, first edition of Joe Hill's book on eBay for a bit under $200 right now. My fingers are so itchy to go there and hit the "buy it now" button that I almost can't stand it.

But I won't. I have books stashed all over this damn house. I don't need any more.

I wish Sweety liked to read so I could catch him up in my enthusiasm.

psst. www.goodreads.com

you and your nerd friend can all keep up on what each other is reading. My whole family is on it...

I never was a huge Stephen King fan. The downside of being a family full of readers is that you end up with a house full of books and eventually run out of places to put them all.

The Cap'n is not a reader either. Sometimes when I've had my nose in a book for several hours, he will literally stand in front of me, shaking his head in bewilderment at my enjoyment. On the other hand, I don't get how he can watch so much History and Military Channel... I'll check out Joe Hill; thanks for the tip! (I love a great scary story.)

My mom always says, "Want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up faster." Isn't she just a doll?

Hey, when you get a second will you email me? I need to ask you something. sharashoe@yahoodotcom

I still haven't read heart shaped box yet and he has a SECOND book out? I've got to get cracking!

The Phosgene Kid said...

We have a house full of books too. I need to add an extension to the hte place...

LOL, LOL, LOL...Your description of your Hard On makes me want to read Joe Hill's Books...I am not a Stephen King Fan...I don't dislike him, I just am not that interested in those kinds of creepy story's....Are Joe Hills Books creepy, too?

..what sucks is that your hard on is bigger than mine...and you don't even have a dick.

I'm going to have to start answering those enhancement emails I get.

Ginamonster - I'll check it out!

Mike - Hadn't thought about the issue of not having space for books if we both read. I guess this way, I can know that whenever I pick up a stray book in the house that it's one that I liked to read. I got hooked on Stephen King when I was in the 3rd grade and got The Shining at a garage sale. It's no wonder that I have fucked up dreams.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow - It bugs Sweety if I sit and read while everyone is watching t.v. He feels like I'm not participating in what he is doing.

The Phosgene Kid - Thanks for the offer but that wouldn't be the same. I've got books stashed in all the drawers here. And the bookshelf. It took me forever to decide how to organize the bookshelf.

Sara Sue - Heh, I like your mom's saying.

Patti_Cake - They're both pretty good reads. Lemme know what you think after you read them!

Lady of the Hills - If you're not a fan of creepy then you probably won't like Joe Hill's books. The book of short stories, 20th Century Ghosts, isn't too creepy but the stories are odd.

Moooooog35 - Don't bother with the enhancement emails. Penis pumps are the way to go.
