Constant Reading

Here's my plan: I am going to read every Stephen King novel and collection, in order, just to see how long it takes me. Below is the list, with publication year and page count.


By the time I get to the end, we'll have to add"The Wind Through the Keyhole" and "Dr. Sleep." I will add those page counts as they are made available. Now let's guess how long it'll take me to get through all of these books. I will let you know when I start.
