Steven King says, “No thanks digital, I’m good”

Posted by

Well, when we thought that the world was going technology in handbasket, Steven King goes and says,”folks who want to read it will have to buy the actual book.” What King is referring to is his new book “Joyland.” Joyland is located in a theme park and if themeparks aren’t terrifying enough with their rickety rollercoasters and complex carbohydrates, the main character, “confronts the legacy of a vicious murder, the fate of a dying child, and the ways both will change his life forever.” I cannot think of a better place to explore themes of humanity, crime, murder and the american dream than in a theme park. Who needs to read it on a ereader? Do you think Steven King will have a hard time selling hard copies of his books?
