I've never read a Stephen King book. When all my friends in high school were rushing to read Carrie and Cujo and The Shining and all the rest (see, I know the titles), I was busy with science fiction (Asimov and Bradbury and Silverberg and Clarke). And I'm not much of a horror/thriller kind of girl. BUT I am absolutely on board with reading King's latest--11/22/63 (complete 10/8/12)-- and, so, I'm going to be very cautious and sign up for the lowest level. Yep, that's me, A King Novice. Now, I just have to find the time (amongst all the other challenges) to read that 1000+ page doorstop that I got for Christmas.

I am so excited that you'll be joining and cant' wait to see what you think of 11/22/63! I loved it and I'm a recent fan of King's works (I've only read 3, 'Salem's Lot, The Colorado Kid and 11/22/63 in the past two months). All of it convinced me that I need to read more from him; his writing style is so genuine! And it's not often I like the Introductions or Afterwards that authors include, but I love reading his!

I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on his work, and seeing if you end up wanting to read more from him!

Thanks so much for joining and here's to 2012!
