As a young child I was diagnosed with learning disabilities. The doctors told my parents I would never read a book. Reading for me was slow, painstaking, and I rarely finished anything I started.
Then one day I stumbled upon a book about vampires in Maine. This book transformed my reading life. Yes it was still difficult to read. However, whenever I opened a King book I was pulled into a world I never wanted to leave.
If it wasn’t for Stephen King I would never have become a lifelong reader, and I certainly wouldn’t have become a professional writer.
Over the years I have amassed a tremendous amount of early, hardback editions. I thought it would be fun to create a newsletter where I give them away. Who knows maybe someone will come across one of these books, someone like me, and the spell King casts with his words will transform their life too.
