Time to nominate for September's book. This book is a book King has recommended to us readers. Please provide the source or blurb where King pushes your nominations...

One nomination per person.
Link to the title using the add book/author option.
Check here to see if we have read the book as a group https://www.goodreads.com/group/books...

You didn’t link to a source where Stephen King actually recommended this book. I tried Google and came up with nothing.

I looked for a Stephen King recommendation and can't find one.

I can't find a King Blurb for this. :(

Next time we do a non-King book I think we'll stick to just recommending books to King. It seems to be tough to find blurbs and books that King recommends to readers.

Latasha (latasha513) | 398 comments I do have some trouble finding them.


message 20: by Nancy (new)

Nancy (paper_addict) | 926 comments He posts to twitter and Facebook his recommendations. If you google books Stephen king recommends there are some websites that post this stuff. Then you can google that book and his name and find where he recommended it.

I think people sometimes don’t really pay attention to the first post. Just like no one checks if it’s been a group read before when a link was even provided.


message 21: by Nancy (new)

Nancy (paper_addict) | 926 comments Bookbub is good at posting the link to the recommendation. Here are a few:

https://www.bookbub.com/blog/2017/02/...

https://www.bookbub.com/blog/2018/07/...

https://www.aerogrammestudio.com/2014...

If people can’t post the link to the recommendation, I wouldn’t go search for it for them. I wouldn’t include it on the poll. You guys have too much else to do. Keep up the good work!


message 22: by Latasha (new)

Latasha (latasha513) | 398 comments Yes. Nancy yes!! Yes!


message 23: by Summer (new)

Summer (paradisecity) | 360 comments First, Nancy's on to something! Second, The Chalk Man was a good read and I think the group would enjoy it.
