1. I noticed at BJs Wholesale that the new Stephen King novel Sleeping Beauties is out. Anyone reading it? I noticed his son Owen is cowriter. Is King going down the Clive Cussler route (his son has taken over the Dirk Pitt series) I know King has vision problems so I am wondering how much Stephen King wrote.

2. A thrift shop had books half off so I bought volumes 1 to 5 of the comic series Strangers In Paradise. I just started it and so far liking Ketchoo. It came to five dollars.
