Thanks for the new thread!

I just started reading Stephen King's The Institute a few days ago and am over halfway through. I am also still enjoying Pay Attention, for Goodness Sakes!

I read The Institute last year. Iím not a huge Stephen King fan, but I enjoyed it. Iíve only read a few of his books & my hands down favourite is 11/22/63.

Pam, I'm enjoying The Institute, but it does seem a bit like a rehash of several of his other books, including Doctor Sleep, Firestarter, and one of the Dark Tower books (I get some of them confused but have read them all). It seems like 11/22/63 is a favorite of many, but I actually found it too be a bit boring with the super-long descriptive sequences (especially about Oswald). That's YMMV applied to reading. ;)

Beth - I havenít read any of the titles you mention so I guess 11/22/63 was fresh material for me. I read it for my book club and itís not one I would have read otherwise. One way book clubs can broaden oneís horizons. And I confess that I am frequently guilty of skimming over long tedious descriptions....;)

I haven't attempted this one mostly due to the length, but one of my sons read it and felt the same way. It was recommended to him by a good friend so he finished it, but kind of regretted it.

I'm finishing up Kitchen Confidential. Parts of it are good, but I'm mostly bored. I need to get better about skimming parts I don't enjoy or just not finishing a book.

Pam and Erica, I definitely skim over long boring parts too, but I have almost never been able to just give up on a book. :o

When I read Les Miserables (1200 pages), Victor Hugo was very interested in describing battle scenes in great detail and also the structure of convents. I did need to scan these parts, but there was no way I was going to stop reading. I did not lose sight of the story.

Stephen King is really hit or miss for me, but I really liked Joyland, which is more coming of age with a mystery subplot.

I just finished the second of Barbara Bretton's Sugar Maple books, Laced With Magic, so waiting on a library hold for the third. This one was darker than the first but still in the cozy realm.

One of my '21 goals is to clear out the unread books on my Kindle and Audible app. I got the audio of Dan Simmon's horror novel A Winter Haunting for free ages ago so started listening to that. I didn't realize it's actually the 4th in a series, but apparently can stand alone. It started well but is now dragging a bit so I'm not sure if I will continue or start something else.
