Announcing...Stephen King's Bag of Bones Read-a-Long


One of my favorite Stephen King books, Bag of Bones, has been made into a television mini-series, set to air on December 11 and 12 on A&E (in the U.S.).  In honor of this momentous event, I have decided to host a read-a-long!

Here's how it will work:

Each week we will read approximately 125 pages (give or take), beginning on Sunday and posting thoughts/discussion on Saturday.  Now, I know weekends are busy so if you're a couple of days late posting, that's absolutely no problem (if you don't have a blog, feel free to post your thoughts in the comments).  Please stop by and leave the link to your post in the comments.  Also, feel free to comment on my post.  I have been known to run behind on read-a-longs so don't worry about being dropped from the list.  I understand that life gets in the way.  Incidentally, since I am hosting, I will make my best effort to NOT fall behind.  Any questions, leave me a comment or email me at truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom.

Here is the schedule:

  • November 13-19--Chapter 1 - 9
  • November 20-26--Chapter 10 - 15
  • November 27-December 3--Chapter 16 - 21
  • December 4-10--Chapter 22 - End
If you would like to sign-up, please leave a comment with your blog link.  Now grab a button and spread the word! Hope you will be joining me. =O)

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Oh! Great!! I did not read anything by Stephen King yet!

  6. I don't think I'll join in on this one, Michelle. I would love to say it's because I'm busy with the sale of my house, but really it's because Stephen King novels give me nightmares for months :(

  11. Oh my gosh you would be my hero! Thank you so much! I do have a VCR, it's old but it plays movies for my nephew.

  12. Believe it or not, I don't think I've EVER read this one (or it was so long ago that I don't remember it!). I DO, however, have it in my TBR piles, so I will be participating! I'll put the info in my Thursday This and That post as well!

  13. I will be able to join; maybe a bit behind due to the fact that I have a bunch of 2-weeker loaners coming in from the library (will be holding off on getting them for about a week) and have to read Crime and Punishment for book club (which is punishment enough at about 600 pages!). Here is my opening post: http://jaynesbooks.blogspot.com/2011/10/bag-of-bones-read-long.html

  14. I may be joining in, but I'll let you know more definitely a bit later in the week...I have to check the schedule of stuff again

  15. Sorry to say that with the IT read-a-long and my full schedule this month, I won't be able to swing this read-a-long too. Bummer since I haven't read this one.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm in! It's also going up in my This and That post today! Woot!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm definitely on board! I love the book but it's been a while since I read it so it'll be a great refresher before the mini-series.

  19. Sadly, I am going to have to drop out of this read-a-long. :( Tomorrow marks the end of the first week, and I have not even managed to finish the first page. When I signed up, I had forgotten about NaNoWriMo. Then, I insanely thought that I could still do both. This is apparently not the case. Thank you Michelle for thinking of me and extending the invitation. Happy reading to everyone still going. :)
