Roland And His Tower and Dandelion Wine

I've had a great week of appreciating books, readers and blogging.  It's been fun.  However, I've been reading some major books this year that I never thought I'd get into if you'd ask what I was going to read this time last year.  
This year I decided to get my nose into 'The Dark Tower Series' by Stephen King.  So far, I've finished the first two books.  They were brilliant, intense and had me on the edge of my seat!  And I loved them.  And there's another six books to go.  What I love about these books is that I have decided to read something in between them to break them up a little.  
I'm getting my nose into 'Dandelion Wine' by Ray Bradbury.  This is a book I've wanted to read for about a year, and have only just gotten my hands on a copy through QBD.  It's a great book so far; and it has taken me back to when I was young as well, even though it's set in a totally different time.

After the Stephen King 'Dark Tower' series and 'Dandelion Wine', I'm not sure what books I'm going to read next.  However, I know that each year, I do get into some extra-ordinary reads.  No matter who I get my books from, which bookstores stock my books, I always find something great and interesting to read.  And I have always found that I never read the same book twice... isn't that great?  There's enough books in our world where I haven't found time to re-read the same book as yet.  Now, that's what I love about reading books; unlike movies - which are remade every 15 years or so - books are one of a kind.  Until my next post, happy reading!


  1. I'm starting my first Stephen King this week: Carrie. Looking forward to it.

    And Dandelion Wine is one of my favorites! Hope you like it.

    1. Oh, what a book! It's fantastic! No matter where I dip into it, each chapter is a separate story of its very own. :D
