I have read The Stand, by Stephen King many, many times over the years. The first time being on a road trip to Reno with my parents when I was about 13 years old. Great story, and very entertaining. However, this is the first time that I have started reading the book and by chapter 7 coming down with a cold. What a difference experience! My cold started as chest congestion, moving into coughing and then sneezing fits. It has immersed me into the story like never before. For better or worse, I highly recommend that the next time you feel a cold coming on, go out, buy a copy of the book and settle in for a whole new immersion of a story that you likely already know.
