Event Annoucement and Sign Up: King’s March

Last year Wendy and I came up with the best idea: spend a month reading as much Stephen King as we could. As you can imagine, we loved it enough that we are doing it again. I hope you’ll consider joining us. The wonderful thing about the event (and Stephen King) is that there is so much to choose from – movies, television shows, short stories, epic novels, non-fiction. Do you feel like watching an amazing movie? Watch The Shawshank Redemption. Do you want to watch an amazingly bad movie? Watch Children of the Corn (I have a few ridiculously good memories tied to this cinematic atrocity). Do you want to be scared? Pet Sematary. Do you want a bit of a love story? Bag of Bones. From Sons of Anarchy to the JFK assassination, Stephen King has something for everyone.

Kings-March

The Event

Everyone knows Stephen King. If you don’t, you need to take a good look in the mirror and ask yourself what you’re doing with your life. Then commit to making a change. Wendy and I can help you with that. We’re inviting you to read and watch anything King-related in the next month. It can be anything by King or King related: books, movies, screenplays, essay, interviews, decor, advice, etc.

So, are there rules? Of a sort. I’m stealing the following, with credit, from Wendy:

Participation

All you have to do to participate in this event is to post about at least one thing King-related. You are free to read as many King books or watch as many King movies as you want, but you can also stick with just one book (some of the books are real chunksters). You can let us know you’re going to participate by signing up with the Mister Linky below, but you can also join in the fun halfway through the month. Every FRIDAY during the event there will be a link-up on both our blogs where you can share your reviews, info posts and any other King-related posts.

You can already put up a post on your blog announcing that you’re going to participate and reflecting on which books you’d like to read. If you do so, please use the event button in the post or in your sidebar and link back to Rory’s blog and mine. You can also let us know you’ve put up a post by leaving a comment. Want to join in the fun on Twitter? Just add the hashtag #kingsmarch to your tweet, so we can interact.

Giveaways

To make this event even more fun, everyone who’s participating in this event will get an entry for winning a book by Stephen King. If you write one post during the event, you get one entry; if you write five, you get five entries. Just make sure you link up this post in one of the weekly link-ups. I’ll host a giveaway on my blog and Wendy will do the same for hers. We’ll both be using the same linkups, so you don’t have to enter at both our blogs. More details will be announced at the beginning of the event

Sign up below. Enjoy, constant readers.

    Joining in again this year-had so much fun last time. I even got my non-reader of a husband to agree to listen to The Stand on audiobook, but that might take awhile!

    • http://www.fourthstreetreview.com/ Rory O’Connor

      Yay! Yay! Yay!

  • Katie McDermott

    So I’m interested in participating! The only SK book I’ve read is the Green Mile, and that was like 14 (or so) years ago! Do you have any recommendations on where to start with his large body of work?

    • http://www.fourthstreetreview.com/ Rory O’Connor

      Yay! It depends on what you like. If you are looking for classic Stephen King, I’d recommend The Stand. If you want something scary, Pet Sematary. If you like novellas, Different Seasons is great. If you want something a bit more literary (and with a love story), Bag of Bones is my personal favorite.

      • Katie McDermott

        I have some other reading that HAS to happen this month, but I think I’ll give Bag of Bones a go! Thanks for the response!

  • http://honeyimreading.wordpress.com/ ebookclassics

    I’m in! … and have no idea what I’m going to read. I think I may start with the short story that he published in The New Yorker this week.

      I just read that and actually really liked it.
