    This is my Stephen King collection. I've been collecting for about a year. My collection consists of 41 books. Some are first editions, some are not, some are in shrinkwrap, and one is in a slipcase. None are signed or lettered.

    I have 45 books, just bought some more!!

    OK - you do have Carrie there.
    That's the one you should read first, as it's King's first published novel.
    Then move on to Salem's Lot and The Shining.Etcetera.
    It's great to see how King developed as a writer.

    I agree! Here's how I would read them:

    1. Carrie-IT (minus any book in the DT series); DT referneces are mostly coincidental except for the turle in IT.

    2. DT 1-7

    3. Major DT tie-in books and others; watch out for books that are sequels.

    Regardless of the order you read them, you are in for a real treat!

    I loved your idea for the Chronological Order but, I already read the first three... (almost done with 'Salem's Lot)
    Did you like Insomnia or Under the Dome better?

    The Talisman, Black House.

    IT, Insomnia, Dreamcatcher.

    Desperation, The Regulators--not a sequel, the same stories, with same characters acting differently. Fascinating read together.

    The Stand, The Eyes of the Dragon.--not a sequel, but both concern Randall Flagg. Possibly Storm of the Century in this string.

    Gerald's Game, Delores Claiborne--not a sequel, but they were originally conceived of as one story.

    And of course DT1-7.

    Hope this helps.

    Haven't read Under the Dome yet, Insomnia was ok, but the ending depends upon your understanding of how it fits into the DT series.

    I loved Eyes of the Dragon. I'm also a big fan of From a Buick 8

    Sorry if I'm bothering you, but how does Insomnia reflect on the DT series?

    That series ties in a lot of his books into one big thread. Sorry, something went wrong with PMs. Its like an epic journey through his world of horror.

    The Crimson King using Ed Deepneau is the villian in the DT series and the child Patrick Danville is important to the resolution of the DT series. And Insomnia is a sequel to IT simply because it takes place in Derry, Maine.

    I haven't gotten around to Under the Dome yet either.
    Too busy with my work. Soon though.
    I'd stay away from either Insomnia as well as Under the Dome for now.
    Insomnia has a definite Dark Tower connection and reading it now this wouldn't really come across.
    Under the Dome is a stand alone novel (I believe), but one of his last books.
    Just stick to chronological. You'll get some of his best books ever. Many people feel the early King is the best King.
    Don't know if I agree, though.

    Anyways, when you're done with Salem's Lot, just move on to Rage (A Bachman novel ) or Night Shift, a short story collection.
    Soon..The Stand. King's best!

    I think you should read Insomnia before you read Under the Dome. I actually like Insomnia better. I love the characters in it .

    No, not really, although one of the characters returns in The Dark Tower series, and two short stories, Jerusalem's Lot and One For the Road, are closely related.
    But, as you've read/are reading Night Shift by now (I believe), you should be familiar with them by now.
