My Sister's Going To Kill Me

My older sister has been trying for years to get me to read The Stand by Stephen King. It's not that I don't trust her recommendation. No, it's because The Stand is frickin' long. Yes, Lori dear - I will read it one of these days. Promise. Maybe the next time I'm stuck in an airport.

Besides The Stand, I've never actually read anything by King - but I think I may have to remedy that by trying his lastest book, Cell. Here's the blurb that caught my eye:

From Publisher's Weekly:

What if a pulse sent out through cell phones turned every person using one of them into a zombie-like killing machine?

My knee jerk reaction was, "So, it's non-fiction and takes place in Southern California?"

Sometimes I think it should be illegal to be such a smart ass.

I liked The Stand, I tried a few others and didn't like them, so stopped. need to read the unabridged edition of the Stand, too. :-)
