The Shining | Stephen King

This is the second Stephen King book with this warning in it. So was he told this as a kid or is it a fear of his?

Megabooks I think this was a common warning given to baby boomer kids. I remember seeing it on some classic tv episodes. 1mo
Bookwormjillk I was always warned about this as a kid too. 1mo
bookishlyblessed Thanks that's good to know. I was mostly surprised that I remember it from It so clearly. 1mo
atla I read a short story recently (I think from Diary of a Murderer and Other Stories) in which this might have happened to a pet kitten.. 😢 1mo

It was a solid mystery book. Lost one star because I called one thing. Gained .5 star because of that epilogue. 4.5 stars

Hour 6 challenge: excuse myself I just woke up. But here is my first and, so far, only tattoo from the incomparable Bitch Planet. I got it done 2 years ago, after I turned 30. I wanted it for at least 5 years before I committed to getting it permanently put on my body. I have no regrets because I will always be noncompliant.

I have been in a horrible reading slump this year. I've read 7 books so far. Between not being in the right state of mind emotionally and busy with a kitchen remodel I haven't felt up to it. But I miss reading tons of things each month. So im sitting down to read this one today. Its short so hopefully that helps kick start my motivation.

Finishing up my day reading one more chapter in this. I will be 74 pages into it. I just finished The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher. For a total of 15 hours reading! Not a win but not a total loss either.
