The Pet Sematary Read Along: #gangstercats

Pet Sematary Read Along
Because I am absolutely, without a doubt, THAT person who rushes around in the mornings, I managed to damage my cornea with a hair brush. Yes! I tore that sucker right off my eyeball and cannot read, so it’s a good thing that I started Pet Sematary early because I probably can’t read for the rest of this week.

Jill @ Somewhere In a Book is hosting this read along. You can click on over for the details and sign-up officially, or you can check out the details here and decide on your own. I must say, I am surprised at how many of you expressed an interest but are a little afraid to drink the water. Do not worry. It is a scary book but you are reading it with friends, after all. This is THE BEST way to read King.

Here’s the important stuff straight from Jill:

  • Instagram and Twitter hashtag: #gangstercats (hey, I was trying to keep it short and silly). Most of you know that I am usually on Instagram (@jilllora), and I will do my best to keep up on twitter (@JilleeBeene), but you’ll have to cut me a little twitter slack since I haven’t been on in 2 years.
  • read at your own pace, post/tweet/instagram/scream whenever you feel like it
  • I’ll put up a check in post at the end of March and again on April 15th. And if you’ve posted thoughts on your blog, I’ll link to everyone’s posts later in April (just in case you’re a slacker poster like me, I’m giving you some time to get that post written).
  • If anyone wants to watch the movie instead of read the book, more power to you. You’re still welcome to join us…I’d love to know how cheesy the movie is! Bonus points (but no kitty treats) if you read AND watch.
  • Go here for more info.

Not so important but my Twitter handle is @TiBookChatter in case you want to chat but if you use the hashtag #gangstercats in all of your Tweets, we can search on that key term and see everything that’s been posted.

So for the die-hard readers who signed up early and who know how freakin’ excited I was about the read along, it may be a few days because you see a Tweet from me. The pain has subsided a little but the sight in that eye has not returned.

Hope you can join us.
