    Default Reading Order ?

    I know that reading order is probably not important. But since i am only starting out with King books and i have 26 of them on the shelf, well you probably dont need a long boring explanation so here is the list in no particular order :

    it
    the stand
    regulators
    desperation
    misery
    the dead zone
    salems lot
    night shift
    blaze
    the mist
    dark half
    dreamcatcher
    firestarter
    pet sematary
    dolores claiborne
    geralds game
    needful things
    green mile
    duma key
    cell
    liseys story
    cujo
    under the dome
    bag of bones

    I would always suggest to stick to publication order.

    Agreed. In the earlier books it's not a big deal. But in a lot of the later books you'll start seeing references to characters or events from other books that you might miss if you haven't read them in order. In fact, the five that you mention reading first I know for sure are referenced in later books.

    I second (third? fourth?) the suggestion of publication order. In fact, that's pretty much my rule for any author, any series.
