I always have the best intentions when it comes to blog challenges, but since I’m still something of a newbie I tend to fall off cart before the horse leaves the stable… if that makes any sense. But then I saw a twitter from Tif Talks Books about The Stand, and followed it to her blog where she’s hosting a read-a-long for one of my all time favorite Stephen King books! So, better late than never, I’ve decided to give this one a go. I’m a little behind, but here’s my first post:
- Will this be your first read of The Stand by Stephen King or a re-read? If you are choosing not to read this book, why? Does just the word King make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up? 🙂 No, I’ve read The Stand several times, but not in recent years.
- If this is a re-read, what has drawn you back to the book for a second (or more) time? The Stand is probably one of my all time favorite Stephen King novels, although I have several, and it’s a book I can always curl up with on a dark and windy night. The uncut version is just a work of art!
- Whether you know the story or not, which location would you prefer if you were a survivor of a gruesome plague: Boulder, Colorado or Las Vegas, Nevada? I am a Mother Abigail girl all the way! Plus I will always take cold over hot.
