It’s June! The weather is starting to heat up and yes, that means read-along fun! Today is the Misery read along kick-off. We are reading the book this month and tweeting about it using the hashtag #MiseryRAL. That’s it!
If you need to get in the mood for this, check out the kick-off post which includes a poem! That Care! Always making it interesting. And that photo of Stephen King! Too much!
Anyway, are you in? How can you say no?

Oh, that picture. It’s worth a few thousand words, at least.
Isn’t it? He looks like a *orn star from the 80s. I bleeped it out because I really don’t want unsolicited comments regarding that subject. LOL.
Im so excited to read this! Believe it or not I’ve onlu watched the movie – many, many times but never read the book. I hear it’s a lot darker than the movie. Yaaaay! Should be loads of fun.
The book IS darker. That, I remember but I can’t remember all of the details on how it differs from the book. I read the first 5% just now and don’t remember it opening that way but I read it like 25 years ago. Maybe longer!
Love the pic 😀 But as usually I’m scrambling for time (I have NO idea how you’re juggling so many things!). Good luck and have fun! 😀
I am not juggling it all that well. A little frazzled at the moment! King was a nice distraction this morning though.
The postcard makes for the BEST bookmark. LOL! Just started at lunch–I was actually a bit surprised that it’s not first person POV–keeps taking my mind a bit to wrap around that. Was going to ask if this is a re-read for you but see from the comments that it is.
OK, I’m not going to read Misery, but I just have to say – what a picture!! You’re right – he does look like some kind of vintage porn star. That’s the King I remember from book covers. You guys enjoy! LOL
I’m definitely in. And I see you have a copy of the book with that wonderful Uncle Stevie picture on the back cover. I want that copy too!
Nope! I could only get a Kindle copy.
Grrr…so many readalongs for June! I’ve got to do the Travel the World in Books one (esp. since I help run it!) and I have to finish a book for my Postal Book Club with bloggers, and I’m just not sure I have time to finish this one by the end of June, too. Esp. with review books, also. Gah! Super sad.
You could read Misery in one sitting. It’s so short. We are all trying to stretch it out.
This book upset me terribly, and at one point I cried. Have fun! 😀
I’ve been a bad girl – reading way ahead. I need to catch up on my other readalong so I’ll put this one aside and let everyone catch up. It is so hard not to tweet spoilers!
I know it. It’s the book I reach for, at the moment. I am at 50% right now and put it down for the day. Maybe.
