Today we discuss the very prolific Stephen King! We have recommendations for every reader (which means that no matter what your reading taste is, we have something that will make you very happy). Sidebar topics include a minor competition about who read Stephen King the youngest (Kelly won) and who has a better Stephen King story (Becky won) and our favorite Stephen King adaptations. This show marks the best day of Kelly's entire life. M-o-o-n, that spells joy.

Also, wait, we have t-shirts now?!
