It‘s awesome and long 👍🏻
Socks, because I can‘t bear the thought of standing where everyone else‘s feet have been. I hate feet.
No idea🤷‍♀️ was on the 43rd floor in a hotel in Shanghai once. I had to close the curtains and couldn‘t look down!
Anything with meat....although I just don‘t eat it!

Day 1 of the #Fallisbooked photo challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

#OctoberTBR - This month I hope to finally finish Oathbringer. I‘ve been reading it really slowly, only because I‘m so entranced by its world, I‘ve literally been savoring every word. Then, Halloween weekend begins the Litsy buddy read of The Stand with @Branwen @Meaw_catlady @ErinSueMreads @JoScho @sprainedbrain and anyone else who‘d like to join us! 😀

JoScho Yay! 3w

#bookhaul Because October and #Scarathlon are coming. And I want to reread The Stand before the new show. (I don‘t remember it being this big!) It‘s going to be a good reading month. #TeamStoker

Kimberlone I just picked up that exact edition of The Stand. My bf says it‘s King‘s best book, so I am going to get to it eventually now 3w
Maude I think it might be bigger than past editions, it has added content. I can't remember how much but I remember King did a letter at beginning explaining the original cuts. 3w
GripLitGrl Great haul! 3w

JacqMac @Maude It does say uncut on the cover, so that‘s probably why it seems so much bigger. I‘ll have to check out the front for a letter. 3w

I have no idea what's happening on the cover but if i saw this in a bookstore i'd definitely pick it just because of the cover.

@tournevis @hes7 @xicanti @Areader2 have you guys been tagged yet? Would you like to do it, just post pictures of your favorite covers, no explanation needed.

TrishB It‘s an awesome read too 👍🏻 1mo

Andrew65 @sudi But most probably balanced out by the good books we read due to the cover that we wouldn‘t otherwise. 1mo
sudi @Andrew65 😂 true 1mo
sudi @Crazeedi really! That's cool. I couldn't find this exact cover anywhere, the new one has the picture but the background color is black and the other cover is super boring and ugly. And then i googled it and it showed that it was a first or previous edition. 1mo

1. Las Vegas 🎲 🎲 🎲
2. Pretty nice after a lot of rain. Good fall day.
3. With a bouncer, nice enough guy until he made a racist observation about bar patrons. I don‘t look it but come from an interracial family. I actually got my Dad to come and pick me up after.
4. 1 daughter and 4 black cats (all girls)
#friyayintro @howjessreads

Dolly Do you have black cats on purpose? I have one because I heard that many people won‘t adopt black cats. I wanted to give at least one a home. I‘d have more if I could afford them. My Smirk is a wonderful cat 😻 1mo
Reagan-reads Yeah, I do! I heard that they were less likely to be adopted years ago and then things just got out of control 😂 1mo

Branwen @Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 Omg this is the BEST DAY EVER! Huzzah! I'm so excited! I wouldn't say it's overly scary, per se? Not like It, or some of his other works. Some parts, definitely. I think for me the scary part is that a) I think it is something that could potentially happen someday, and b) humanity can be screwed up (but also so beautiful). I think more than scary it is a testament to the highs and lows of humanity. (edited) 2mo
Meaw_catlady @Branwen I‘m super intrigued! This will be fun ! 🖤 glad the universe brought us together for this moment! 👏 2mo
Branwen @Meaw_catlady @DaveGreen7777 ME TOO, FRIEND! ME TOO! 😃 When would you guys like to start it? Do you want to make it in October, since it'll be Halloween? I'm super flexible so whenever you guys want to set it up is fine with me! 💕 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Meaw_catlady October works for me. If early October is a little tricky for anyone, we can even start it on Halloween weekend if you want! That might be a great way to kick off the holiday! 🎃👻😱 2mo

DaveGreen7777 @Branwen @Meaw_catlady I‘m so excited for this buddy read! 😊 I‘m thinking maybe Halloween weekend will be a good starting point, if that works for you both. That will give me time to finish Oathbringer and also another buddy read I had scheduled with someone once I‘m done with Oathbringer. Thanks! 😌 2mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 @Meaw_catlady Whoo hoo! That sounds perfect! 😀 2mo

Apparently Stephen King himself is writing the final episode of the new mini-series coming out. 👏👏

It will be an epilogue or coda of sorts.

• I chuckle when King ends these chapters with the DUH-DUH-DUH moment of: "he/she wasn't REALLY sick, they didn't FEEL sick, and they were so caught up in doing their jobs or going about their lives that they couldn't POSSIBLY have considered they might be infected themselves." This is a NURSE treating the sick characters! ?? Hilarious •

I have been going to bed so early lately, rather against my night owl nature. I need to start prepping for much less sleep, so I think I'll stay up a bit tonight. Baby seems to be in agreement •

Yesterday marked the 9th anniversary of my Dad‘s passing from Bladder Cancer. Like myself, my Mom, and my sister, he was a huge reader. Two of his favorite books were 2001 (his copy is shown) and The Stand (I had to buy a new replacement copy because his original copy had been read so many times it was no longer holding together.) I miss him everyday, but I know he‘s with me and reading over my shoulder. #alwaysinmyheart #neverforgotten

MallenNC I‘m so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad several years ago, but I love to tell people about him. It really does keep the memory alive. I‘m glad you shared this on Litsy. 3mo

• Because I like to punish myself with doorstoppers I don't have time for. Good ride so far; gotta pace myself because it's a long-ass journey. Anyone else starting this one for the first time? •

Finally, I meet Mr. Flagg. AKA the Man in Black, Walter O‘Dim, and others. The real reason I picked up this book was the connection to #TheDarkTower series. I can't wait to see where this book takes me🤓📖

TrishB Probably my fav book! 3mo
OneStrangeGuy I'm totally loving it so far!! I can see why it's a favorite 3mo

My first time reading a book on a tablet. Didn't realize how long it was! Also my first Steven King book. I totally loved it until the last few pages (which I thought could have been eliminated). The post pandemic story of survivors. Amazing character development and plot twists. If you thought the last few pages made sense, please let me know. Also, which King book should I read next?

OneStrangeGuy I have a read a few but so far my all-time favorite would be the complete dark tower series. The gunslinger is the first one 👍👍 4mo

Reading #thestand and realizing how terrifyingly easy it would be for something like this sickness to spread in real life😳😳 I feel great now... *coughs with paranoia*

I‘ve fallen out of love with reading for a bit. I always find re-reads of my favorites make me fall back in love- it‘s been 6 years. It‘s time.

Ashley_Nicoletto I‘ve reread this four times. It‘s my favorite book and every time I wonder if I will have out grown it, but the answer is always no. Enjoy! This one is the best. 4mo
HotMessJess @Ashley_Nicoletto I AGREEE!!!!! I remember the first time I read it- I was in the Philippines during my second field season and the professor I worked with would notice that after dinner every night I would just disappear for HOURS to read. No book has ever held my attention like this one. 4mo
Bklover This makes me want to read it. Again. Love it every time 4mo

I think I‘m excited about this?

dariazeoli Hmm. Never considered him. Could be interesting! 4mo
Suet624 I might be excited about this too. 4mo
DavidDiamond I‘m not so concerned about the casting as I am about them adapting the book to tv. Although a 9 episode arc could lead to a faithful adaptation of the book! 🤞🏻 4mo

My audible credit comes in tomorrow, and my friend is saying to download the stand. I'm considering it, but do you have any other recommendations?

#HardcovervsPaperback #Riotgrams I guess I would say I like hardcovers better.But , I have mentioned on Litsy before, I buy something in hardcover cuz I just can‘t wait to read it, then it‘s out in paper before I get to it.😞Or sometimes having multiple copies just because we like variant covers ,like to have extras , beat up ones for the reading etc.I happened to just like the copy of this title especially printed for World Book Night U.S. 2012.

FeministBookClub I absolutely love The Stand. I even own the mini series on DVD! 4mo
Freespirit Great book 4mo
Leftcoastzen @FeministBookClub @Freespirit Many would say it is his best book. 4mo

“Films, even the best of them, freeze fiction....That is not necessarily bad...but it is limiting. The glory of a good tale is that it is limitless and fluid; a good tale belongs to each reader in its own particular way.”
