Thank you Jenni for creating a button for our month long reading of Misery by Stephen King!
We’ve found some unique words and often-used words: obdurate, oogiest, cockadoodie, dirty bird, goodness! blah-de-blah-de-blah.
We’ve highlighted some differences between the book and the movie – I have NEVER seen the movie though I *do* know who stars in it. [I found an online essay that highlighted differences between The Shining book and movie and it reminded me that I’ve never seen that one either! See how far I’ve come from being a total NON-King appreciator to moving him to the top spot of Most-Books-by-a-Single-Author-Read category?]
What else? MUSIC! Has everyone enjoyed the playlist so far? I’m not done. There are SO many choices for this. And I have a few other interesting things to do yet, so I hope you’re not done with the text and are bored… You’re having fun, yes? Not scared, right?!
It’s June 8 which puts us approximately a quarter the way through the month; this puts us at page 80 or so if you are being ‘paceful’. Thus, my selection of King of the Road by Roger Miller: “No phone, no pool, no pets . . . I ain’t got not cigarettes . . pg. 81
The Second Part begins on page 90 in my edition. So I’ll finish here with the quote that starts that section:
Writing does not cause misery, it is born of misery. -Montaigne
