Stephen King Library ReRead

Update: I’m done!

Date begun: 10/1/2014

Date completed: 9/18/2015

09/19/2014: My Challenge 

Hello, everybody! E. here. Welcome to probably my most insane reading challenge yet. Because I’m an unstable individual with too much time on my hands, I plan on rereading Stephen King’s entire library. Well, the novels, anyway. I will be skipping his novellas, short story collections, and, because I just got through reading them, the books in his Dark Tower series. I’m hoping to tackle two to three of his books a month, but I will read no less than one every thirty days. Of course, that all depends on the length of the books in question. Massive volumes like It and Under the Dome  will likely take a month to get through on their own, whereas I could more than likely read CarrieGerald’s Game, Dolores Claiborne, and The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon in under thirty days.

Below, you will find a list of titles I intend to reread. I will review and put a line through each one as I complete them. You will notice that some are already marked as read, and that’s because it’s been less than five years since I reread them, and I feel it’s too early to tackle them again. The challenge begins October 1, 2014.

06/13/2015: Updated  to add

I won’t be rereading his Straub collabs until the final Jack Sawyer novel is released. Whenever that might be.

The Bachman Books (all seven) will be a separate project I take on after this challenge is complete.
