Just After Sunset | Stephen King
post image

Reading this again for #losersclub. It‘s been so long since I read it but I still love it! I love SK‘s short stories. And medium stories. Etc.
#justaftersunset
#buddyread

BarkingMadRun I‘m loving it as well, I‘m tearing through it faster than I planned 2w
Bklover @BarkingMadRun Me too! I started it early because it seemed like it took forever to get through Duma Key and now I‘m trying to slow down a bit. 2w
KathyWheeler I love King‘s short stories too. It constantly amazes me that he‘s a master of the short story when he is so long winded the majority of the time! (edited) 2w
Bklover @KathyWheeler I know what you mean! 2w

Neither?? I do the really bad thing. I skip to the end and read the last fifty pages. Yes, I know. How about you??

Amandajoy I rarely put a book down because I‘m always afraid a book will redeem itself in the end. Maybe I should try your method? 1mo
Bklover @Amandajoy It‘s really an awful thing to do but sometimes i get this “blah blah blah let‘s get to the end” feeling and can‘t stop myself!! It‘s awful- sometimes though I read the end and then I want to go back and finish it properly. 🤷‍♀️😘 1mo

Happy September! I can‘t wait for fall - I‘m already trying to figure out my October list, which is my favorite! @TheAromaofBooks Here they are! September I bailed on both my bookspin and my doublespin. I‘m going to do better this month! (I say that every month) Thank you Sarah!!
#bookspin

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1mo
Zoes_Human Ohhhh I like your number 19! What‘s your process for picking? 1mo
Bklover I don‘t exactly have one yet. I was making my list late last night and thought it would be fun to read someone else‘s bookspin. I figured I‘d scroll through the bookspin hashtags and pick one. If you have any suggestions let me know! It sounds fun, doesn‘t it?? 1mo

I wish I could be more original here, but here we are. Sue Grafton and I go way back. I was graduating college when A is for Alibi came out, and I read them as she wrote them faithfully right up to M. Then I just stopped, thinking I needed to let her get ahead of me by a few books. I haven‘t read one since. Maybe it‘s time to catch up!

1. Both my mom and dad, but mainly my dad. He read to me every night. I also credit Scholastic Books classroom orders and a couple of others I can‘t remember. Ordering books at school and then getting them handed to you by the teacher was somehow magical to me. ❤️

2. Stephen King❤️

3. No- I do buddyreads sometimes, but otherwise no. Litsy is my book club!!❤️

AlaMich Re: #1…Now Scholastic just ships directly to the family, so basically it‘s no different from Amazon to the kid. I loved when the Scholastic order came in, too! 2mo
