Doctor Sleep; Stephen King - read-along


I was so excited to learn about this "read-along" on Ti's Blog.  I loved The Shining (book and movie) and can't wait to read/listen to the sequel Doctor Sleep. This Read-Along is being hosted by, Tif Talks Books and Charlene's Cheap Thrills

Here are some of the basics:

Doctor Sleep is being released on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 -- one week from today!  However, to allow participants enough time to get their hands on a copy of the book, the kick off will be on Monday, September 30.  

Monday, September 30:  Doctor Sleep Read-along Kick-off!
Monday, October 7:  Discussion #1 (approx. pages 1-180)
Monday, October 14:  Discussion #2 (approx. pages 181-360)
Monday, October 21:  Wrap-up Discussion (total 544 pages)

I received the audio version for review, but like you I'm expected to wait until the official release date to begin:)

Great way to get psyched about Halloween!
Won't you join us?

  1. I've been hearing a lot about this but didn't realize it was a sequel to The Shining! Sounds good. My dad was visiting this weekend, and I know he is counting the days...

    Enjoy it!

  3. I just received my audio copy and was planning to add it as one of my choices for the RIP Event. May as well join the read along too, although I don't think I can wait that long to finish it!

  4. Thanks for joining us! I will be reading, so will be really curious to hear what you think of the audio version! Who is narrating? Is it King himself? (I've loved his personally narrated audios in the past!)

  5. I'm reading along with this one. I look forward to discussing with you. I just hope my book ships on release day so it can get here in time. It takes forever for the mail to get to the boonies.
