As Chevy Chase, of Lampoon's "Vacation" fame, said, "This is crazy, this is crazy, this is crazy!" Which is exactly what I'm saying right now as I decide to embark on this read-a-long...or It-Along...of Stephen King's epic It. Yeah, yeah, I know I have a ton of reading already on my plate AND I'm getting ready to host the EPIC Dark Tower read-a-long (September - July) over at my Stephen King Challenge blog, but I've been wanting to read It for a long time and I failed at Serena's read-a-long last year so I just can't resist this It-along hosted by Fizzy Thoughts and Reading Through The Night. I'm hoping that this won't be another fail, but I guess that is yet to be seen. If you think this sounds like something crazy as well, but would like to throw caution to the wind, you can get the details and sign-up HERE.
From Fizzy Thoughts:
Suggested reading/posting schedule (don’t worry, we won’t kick you out of the clown car if you don’t stick to it):
- Sunday, September 16th: read through Part 3, but not the Third Interlude, and post your thoughts. In my copy, this is page 608 of 1098, making it slightly more than halfway.
- Sunday, October 14th: finish, and post your final thoughts.

Have I mentioned my clown phobia....
