Having read a fair amount of Stephen King books over the past ten years or so, I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered this reading challenge and decided to take part in it. I had already started on 11/22/63, the latest King novel, which found its way under my Christmas tree last month, and so far it’s been an amazing read. I’m nearly halfway through and enjoying every page so far.
Here are the rules:
The Stephen King Project Overview
1. This will run from January through December 2012
2. Anyone can join. But you should have a blog OR an account with Goodreads, Shelfari, etc., so you can write your reviews and we can visit via the link at The Stephen King Project.
3. The Project will be hosted at The Stephen King Project. Participants should link their reviews to the Linky there.
4. Audiobooks count.
5. E-books count.
* A King Novice: 1 book
* A Lil Bit of King: 3 books
* A King to Balance It All: 6 books
* A King Legend: 9 books
* A King for All Seasons: 12+ books
What About the Movies?
Hell. YEAH. Same rules from the above apply, except…
* You can mix and match but you should have more books than films in your end-of-year total tally.
What Should You Do Now?
1. Write an announcement post on your blog.
2. You don’t have to put a list of books together in your announcement post. Or you can.
3. Use one of the blog buttons from the sidebar.
4. Enter the link to your announcement post here at The Stephen King Project at the appropriate post.
5. Every time you write a review, enter the link to it for the appropriate month at the review site. (On the 1st of each month, a new entry will be posted at the review site, and you can link up your reviews there).
6. At the end of each month, one participant from that month will be selected via random.org and will win a book from either Kathleen or I (or we may both have a book to give you). The book may or may not be King-related.
7. At the end of the year, one participant from the year will win a $50 gift card!
Maybe you’d like to join and be a part of the reading adventure. If you’ve read any King before you’ll love it. If not, now’s a good time to start. For more information, click here:
