Since I'm absolutely not going into the Spoiler thread, I wanted to ask a couple of questions. I read the first three books well over 10 years ago, and haven't touched them since. I got the fourth book when it came out but figured I'd wait. As such, I've been waiting for a long frickin' time.
Anyway, I have 1-6 now and hopefully will get 7 come Christmas, but I wanted to know a coupe of things:
1) Have the books themselves aged well? How have they held up over the years?
2) What is the links that shows which other books relate to the series? The links was once posted at Gone Gold, but I lost it then the site died. Basically, it was a link that showed which of King's books related to the series and how they related. I also wonder whether some of them are required reading to get the most out of the books.
As I said, this is not meant for spoiler territory, just basic questions. Thanks!
