The Stand Read-A-Long: My Answers to the Beginning Questions

I would like to take a few minutes to answer the questions I posed in The Stand Read-A-Long:  The Beginning.  Enjoy!

Will this be your first read of The Stand by Stephen King or a re-read?  If you are choosing not to read  this book, why?  Does just the word King make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up?  :)

As I mentioned back in one of my original posts, I am reading The Stand for the second time.  

If this is a re-read, what has drawn you back to the book for a second (or more) time?

For my reason on re-reading this book, you can refer to my announcement post for details; however, in a nutshell, I want to see if this books holds up to being one of my favorites after many years of making this proclamation.

Whether you know the story or not, which location would you prefer if you were a survivor of a gruesome plague:  Boulder, Colorado or Las Vegas, Nevada?

I'm not a desert person, but rather a mountain person . . . I'm going with Boulder, Colorado!


  1. This is a book which I have wanted to read for a while but I think the only way Id do it if if I read 100 pages per week or something. Its the scale that puts me off!

  2. Jessica . . . It is a very long book and can be very intimidating, but I think once you get into it, it is hard to put down! That is what I remember of it anyways! Let's see if it happens again this time around!! :)
