Salem's Lot Read-a-Long

Here we go with Salem's Lot! I’m excited! It's October now and officially scary time! Perfect for Stephen King.
I’m going to split it up in two parts and so we'll have two discussion check-ins\
  • Start reading on October 1
  • Read Prologue - Chapter 9 (pp. 1 – 218)
  • Come back here on October 19 to discuss the first half
  • On October 19, start reading Chapter 10 – Epilogue (pp. 219 – 439/the end)
  • Come back here on November 1st to discuss the second half/the book as a whole
I hope you will be joining me. If you are, I hope you’re looking as forward to it as I am.

The Mega Perpetual Reading Challenge Read-a-Long - Salem's Lot

In order to increase group interaction (and participation) within this reading challenge, as well as the three other perpetual challenges I host, I've decided to host this MEGA read-a-long event. For The Stephen King Challenge part of the read-a-long, which is coming in October, I chose Salem's Lot. Feel free to join in on the other read-a-longs. You do not have to sign up for the other reading challenges to join in on the read-a-longs.

The hub for the entire event will be at my The True Book Addict blog but the individual read-a-longs will be hosted at their respective blogs (I will list those below). The Salem's Lot read-a-long will be hosted here at The Stephen King Challenge blog. Look for a page in the menu at The True Book Addict which serves as this MEGA read-a-long's hub.

So, here is the schedule of read-a-longs and their respective blog urls:

June 2015: A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray - hosted at The Fantasy Project blog (read-a-long schedule is posted there) and in Goodreads group.

July/August 2015: The Covenant by James A. Michener - hosted at The Michener Challenge blog.

September 2015: The Wolf Gift by Anne Rice - hosted at The Never-Ending Anne Rice Challenge blog.

October 2015: Salem's Lot by Stephen King - hosted at The Stephen King Challenge blog.

The reading and discussion schedule for Salem's Lot will be coming soon. Please leave a comment if you have any questions or comments.
