So you know we’re all on for the #shineon in February, right? We’ll be spending the month reading Stephen King’s The Shining. Because, as Michelle (at least I think/hope it was Michelle?) said, nothing says romance like Stephen King.
But after Princess Clown Nose asked what readalongs we planned on joining in the New Year, I got to thinking about what I wanted to read next year, and I came up with two more readalong possibilities.
For January, I’m planning a “I’m gonna finish that damn book if it’s the last thing I do” readalong. Otherwise known as the Procrastination-along (I’ll be calling it the #peeon for twitter purposes, mostly because at this point that’s how I feel about my chosen book), this readalong is for those of us who flaked on reading something in 2012 (and I’d be willing to bet we ALL flaked on something). You can read whatever your nemesis is, but I will be finishing Bleak House. After which I have plans to never pick up another Dickens. Yes, you read that right. I am over Mr. Wordy Pants, even if his characters do have the best names.
And then, in March, there will be the March-along. For now, I’ll let you guess what the book is, but the readalong name is totally relevant. Also, it’s the freezer book from Friends. And Out of Print has a tote that would make a spectacular readalong prize.
Buttons and official plans to follow, but for now, do I have any takers?
