Show us your copy! Audio or print?

I don't feel like taking a pic since I don't have a smart phone so I have to hook up the USB cable to download a pic. Ugh! However, I will be reading this tome (and I do mean tome) in hardcover...my own copy.

Have you read Uncle Stevie before?

But, of course! He is one of my fave authors. My favorite SK book is Bag of Bones, but I really love all his books that I've read (except Christine and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon). I love SK so much that I even host my own perpetual reading challenge, The Stephen King Challenge.

What are you familiar with about Under the Dome or Stephen King?

What I know about SK is a whole other blog post. I'm familiar with Under the Dome, as I started reading it last year so I'm already pretty far in. No catching up for me! Yay!

What are you looking forward to?

Finishing the book, or course. And definitely the miniseries!

WW Read-a-Thon

From the blog:
The Wicked Wildfire Read-A-Thon is a time when we all get together to dedicate the days of June 7-14 to as much reading as possible. You read as much as you can in order to get yourself a little further through that huge to-read pile! We know real life gets in the way and even if you can’t participate more than one day, you’re welcome to join in on the fun!

In the meanwhile, we will be hosting book-related challenges where you can win some awesome prizes and have a Twitter party at the hashtag #WWReadathon! You can posts updates on your blog, Twitter, Goodreads or Facebook — as long as the profile is public and we all can enjoy your reading progress!
