I am totally cheating. I wrote this post earlier this week and was going to wait ’til next week to post it, but then I was looking over the daily blogging topics for BBAW and realized that it answers today’s prompt: What does book blogging mean to you?
I love the blogging community, especially its sense of adventure and fun. Which usually leads me into reading territory I normally wouldn’t venture into. This is the perfect example:
I am way late to this party. Like nine months late. But if you’d asked me back in January if I’d planned to read any Stephen King this year I would’ve said, “Well, I have 11/23/63 on my shelf…I might read that. Maybe. But I’m not really into King.”
And then the Standalong happened. And it was so much fun! And then somehow Princess Clown Nose and I suckered ourselves (and a bunch of you) into reading IT. Also…so much fun! So I really have no good reason NOT to join The Stephen King Project. Which means…consider me joined.
My goal is to read three books. I am cheating and retroactively counting The Stand. IT will be #2. And who knows about the third. I’m wondering if I can actually squeeze 11/23/63 in by the end of the year. Or I might try to read something for Banned Books Week. If I can find anything short…although I have my doubts that Mr. King even knows the meaning of that word!
And Natalie? I’m sorry I ignored this for nine months. To be honest, I don’t even remember when you first posted about it! That’s how successful I was at ignoring King.
