You know what, I will honestly thank you for saying that you GET that I can't do books. Many snobs out there will think people who don't read aren't as intelligent or whatever it may be and I just hate that. I can read well, and if it's a novella I am down with it, or even short stories. I love me some Poe or something like Of Mice and Men or Different Seasons. But, I seriously just can't do a long book. In the last year at work I tried to read IT and The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. I will admit to just being totally uninterested in the longevity of IT (the descriptions were just too long-winded for me) and I really loved the spaghetti western-ish shootout in The Gunslinger, but at times it lost me too, then it'd pull me right in. But, then there was stuff in IT where King would add little things to the characters (such as Ben not knowing he felt lonely because he's never felt anything but) that I completely dug and know that it's a lot harder to express that with film. So, I'm sort of caught between a rock and a hard place with the whole reading thing. I've never tried listening to a book though, I must say.
