The Stand Read-A-Long: Check-In #3

It's time to check in once again on The Stand!  I'm going to leave the questions pretty generic this time around.  The final two check-ins will have more direct questions!

Where are you currently at in the book (e.g., page, chapter, description)?

I am currently on page 323 of 1153 or Chapter 36.

What are your thoughts so far?

I have not gotten very far this week because I have set the book aside for a while to finish my book club selection for our monthly meeting next week.  It has been a nice break, but I am very excited to get back into the swing of The Stand because surprisingly, I miss it.  Not sure what there is to miss since I'm still in the midst of Captain Trip's outbreak.  And, I'm now suffering from many allergy symptoms, including a stuffy nose, coughing, sneezing, etc.  I think as long as I don't get stuck in a tunnel, I will be able to keep my anxiety at a manageable level!!

What I believe I truly miss is the characters.  Like I have said many times before, I believe that King has a knack for developing his characters.  And, I simply miss the characters!  I can't wait to continue on their journey as they travel across the states!  I will be diving back in this weekend, so until next time . . .

Don't forget to follow our read-a-long conversations on Twitter at #readthestand (don't make me look like I'm talking all to myself there please!!).

And, as a reminder, here are the dates for our final check-ins:
  • Saturday, May 8th
  • Monday, May 17th:  Wrap-Up!
