Started reading on April 24, 2012, and finished reading on September 21, 2015

You may wonder why such a short book took me 3 years, 4 months, 28 days (excluding the end date) to finish. Here’s what happened…
My friend and I were going on a trip somewhere. She told me, after we were on the road, that we’d be sitting in line for two hours after we got there- not just going straight in and then coming home after. She tells me this as she’s pulling into a Wal-mart parking lot, because she needs to get a bottle of water for drinking while we’re in the line. I ask her to get me a book and a water, and handed her a $5. After we got where we were going, the “two hour line” ended up being only a five minute line. My friend shoved my book and our waters into her purse. It was another year before I got the book back. Then it got lost. I found it when I reorginzed my bookshelves, but still didn’t crack it open. For the record, I read the whole book in a matter of a few hours.

The Colorado KidThe Colorado Kid by Stephen King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book has insight into the kind of mystery, and news, stories that newspapers print. The tale told in the book, the one of the Colorado Kid, is not one of them. This book is more of a make-you-think-and-wonder than it is a straightforward crime novel. The cover, though a beautiful piece of artwork, may be misleading because the book takes place in 2005.
