Always have a book

I make it a policy to always take something to read when going anywhere, especially if I’m going alone and there may be the chance of a traffic jam or car trouble or some other delay. That is just what readers do.

Stephen King is a reader first, and a writer second. And though he has a house on Siesta Key he is apparently a Red Sox fan. (This photo is of King at game 3 at Fenway.)

But what does a reader do when they are at Fenway and the home boys are losing 11-1? Great shot from last night’s Rays thrashing of the Sox was of King sitting in the stands reading a book.

I’m impressed that he was prepared. He brought a book to Fenway, just in case.

My suspicion is that he got a lot of reading done.
