Ten books both Stephen King and I have read:
- The Beach by Alex Garland
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
- The Ax by Donald E. Westlake
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling
- A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
- Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
- The Liar's Club by Mary Karr
- The Church of Dead Girls by Stephen Dobyns
- The Secret History by Donna Tartt
These titles, among many others, are listed as books Stephen King read and particularly enjoyed in the period during which he was writing his memoir/writer's guide On Writing. I dispute his claim that no. 8 is entertaining, nor even any good at all. But I have a fairly low tolerance for memoirs, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
And speaking of Michael Ondaatje...
