 photo 7046FB94-604C-4EDF-B656-8812AF724482_zpsmnals9ju.jpeg




The book of the month pick for May is Salem's Lot by Stephen King. This is a classic from the literary master of horror. I've watched the movie version of Salem's Lot several times, but never got around to reading the book. Being that I'm an enthusiastic fan of Stephen King, it is always a joy to begin reading one of his bestselling works that has remained on my 'To Be Read' list for far too long.
