And if you’re a Constant Reader, this may serve as a reminder of the stories you love and may want to pick up again. As a recent guest of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Stephen King talked about his 5 favorite reads, plus one bonus, and I’ve rounded them up here. These books show his great range as a writer and any reader is sure to find one to fit their reading tastes.
