The Stand-along

I just couldn't resist this read-along. It's a big one, too. Hope I can get through it. Anyone else joining in on the fun? If you want to, just click the button and sign up!

1. What makes you want to read The Stand?
I have  always wanted to read it. I am a big fan of Stephen Kin.
2. Describe your preconceived notions of The Stand.
It's a BIG book. It's classic King!
3. What was the last scary(ish) book you read or movie you saw?
Funny enough, we read The Shining for Book Group back in October.
4. Which version of the book will you be reading from?
The unabridged, extra long version.
5. What are you previous experiences with Stephen King?
I have actually read quite a bit of King's books and seen many movies based on his books. I am a fan and can't believe I haven't read this one before.
6. Anything else you'd like to add (bonus points for being extra random).
My brother-in-law lives in Maine. King is from Maine. Lots of his books are set there. That is my connection to King. :) Hehe.

  1. I'm so excited to start reading this in just a few days. Can't wait! I've been reading a lot of King this year for The Stephen King Project and I was holding off on The Stand until later this year, but hey, if everyone else is going to read it around the same time, why not? I can't wait! :)

  2. LOL!! That's a great connection to King. Maine is so gorgeous, huh? I feel like the group is pretty divided into folks like me who are scared to death of King and haven't read anything by him (though I've seen many of the movies) and those who are adoring fans. I think we'll have a great time. Thanks for joining Mari! ;)
