Medium Button The Stephen King Challenge ItSo the plan was I wouldn’t join any challenges until I finished my site’s re-design. Well that only lasted until I received an invitation to join The Stephen King Challenge, hosted by Michelle (True Book Addict) and Kate (Read 2 Review), which was too good to pass up.

What’s the goal of this challenge?

Read Stephen King’s published works, all of ’em.

What’s different about this challenge?

It’s perpetual. That means it lasts as long as you take to read all of Stephen King’s books. BUT, there will be mini-challenges throughout the year 🙂

When does it start?

February 1, 2012

For full details visit the challenge’s official website. (For a complete list of King’s work visit his official website.)

NOTE: Re-reads are allowed.

When I signed up on January 23, 2012 I’d already read the following:

‘Salem’s Lot
The Shining
The Stand
Pet Sematary
The Talisman
The Eyes of the Dragon*
The Dark Half
Four Past Midnight (Collection)
Gerald’s Game
Dolores Claiborne
Nightmares and Dreamscapes (Collection)
On Writing (Memoir / Non-Fiction)
Everything’s Eventual (Collection)
The Green Mile (Read the original serial format, which I own)

*My all-time favorite book by Stephen King.

**Notice the rather large gap between The Green Mile and Cell? Yep, from 1996 to 2011 I didn’t read anything new; I just re-read what I owned and loved.
