Dark Tower/Tie-Ins Reading Order Help

Hi, all. Inspired by a panel I attended this past weekend at the Salt Lake Comic-Con, I'm exploring the possibility of delving back into - and finishing - Stephen King's epic The Dark Tower, while also reading all of the major connected tie-in novels. However, I've been having a hard time figuring out exactly in which order I ought to read everything in order to get the absolute most out of the overall tapestry of the story, and thought I'd get some help - and opinions - from you guys.

I've already identified this tentative reading order, but am not sure how to flesh it out:
The Talisman
The Eyes of the Dragon
The Gunslinger (Revised Edition)
The Drawing of the Three
The Waste Lands
Rose Madder
The Stand (Revised and Uncut Edition)
Wizard and Glass
The Wind Through the Keyhole
Salem's Lot
The Wolves of the Calla
The Song of Susannah
Black House
The Dark Tower

I still need to figure out where to place Bag of Bones, Desperation, Everything's Eventual, From a Buick 8, Hearts in Atlantis, Insomnia, The Regulators, and Ur, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
