OK... so after we do this nomination we will be a schedule to where we want to be. Everyone will start having about a month to obtain the book we are going to read. So now we will be nominating for November and this time around it is a King book. Please look at the bookshelf (you can link to it on the homepage on the right) to see what books of King we have already read. We are trying to read all of them!!

Ok... start nominating!

So Far.....

Christine
Different Seasons
Desperation
The Dark Half
Dreamcatcher
The Green Mile
From a Buick 8
Regulators
Running Man
UR/The Tall Grass
Everything's Eventual

The books that we've read in the group are on this shelf: http://www.goodreads.com/group/booksh...

So anything that's not on there would work.

Oh ok I see now anything with group read we can't pick. Gotcha! :)


message 11: by Lee (new)

Lee (leeshirk) Since I don't see my favorite King book (besides the DT series) I must nominate...

The Dark Half

I absolutely love Thad and could read this book a thousand times. Hell I have probably read it ten times already! LOL

I have to say I have not read this one surprisingly enough. I did however watch the movie and was fairly intrigued with it. I keep meaning to read it, but always seem to forget about it when shopping for a new book.

This might help. I made a new bookshelf with eligible books on it.

I have read it but would love to read it again. IMO it was very good.

message 29: by Catherine (new)

message 30: by Kit★ (new)

Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 609 comments I could go for Christine as I've yet to read it, or Dreamcatcher would be good because I was planning on re-reading that one in the colder months sometime anyway, and with the group would only enhance my reading :)

Since it's coming out in October and this is for November's book, I can see allowing it. For some reason I thought it was releasing later on when I did my shelves.

And yes, I know that it's already been out in Esquire. But I'm going by the ebook/audiobook release you mention so more people will be able to get it.

Christopher Owen | 104 comments Dreamcatcher or the Regulators! :-)

Is it a short story? I think UR is too though.. maybe I will have them together as a nomination so there is more to read that month!

Yes, it is. That would be a great idea to package them..


message 40: by Jessy (new)

Jessy (jessyanelfatheart) | 32 comments I nominate Black House just because it is my next book on my list of read throughs of King's books. If not that I also liked the idea of Dreamcatcher. I just finished this novel and would love to hear others views on it.


message 41: by Luis (new)

Luis | 18 comments I nominate From a Buick 8 because that book seems to be ignored by just about everyone.

You should speak with Holly. I believe she's going to be read From A Buick 8 soon.:)

Hmmm. So From a Buick 8 is worth checking out?

I agree.. it would seem to me that this is an ignored book (since I own it and have never read it!)
