The Shining by Stephen King


     Jack Torrance’s new job at the Overlook Hotel is the perfect chance for a fresh start. As the off-season caretaker at the atmospheric old hotel, he’ll have plenty of time to spend reconnecting with his family and working on his writing. But as the harsh winter weather sets in, the idyllic location feels ever more remote . . . and more sinister. And the only one to notice the strange and terrible forces gathering around the Overlook is Danny Torrance, a uniquely gifted five-year-old.

Original paperback cover

Jack Nicholson (in character )                and              Stephen King

    You all, I am so sorry. I meant to message but I totally forgot to. I was only halfway done and I didn't want to come and not be able to contribute and I want to finish the book! I'm so sorry for my non-RSVP.

    The library has about 15 copies although it shouldn't be hard to find a second handed copy some where
