So we can start preparing, I have 3 questions:

1.) Will you be reading this series with us?

2.) Will you be joining on camera for discussions each month?

3.) Do you want to host discussions?

 

I ask because some may want to read but not join the stream, or want to join but not host.  So let’s get a list of who wants to host and get at least an rough schedule planned.

for me it’s yes to all 3 btw.  As people start posting I’ll update this post with lists of who wants to host, who will be reading ect

Oh my... I tried the first book 10-15 years ago and didn't like it (Dutch edition at the time). I still think I won't but I do want to try some King. If I can fit it in I will read the first book with you guys but since I don't know if I will continue after that I don't want to commit for anything else. If spaces are open and I have read the book, I'll come and chat and otherwise you can find me in the livechat :D

I can finish the book in a week or so. I don't feel under pressure.

 

Okay, maybe a little. 

I think the books get bigger 😅

Hey guys! I want to definitely join in the stream for all the discussions and will reread the gunslinger because I read that one a year ago but I have read the last three fairly recent so I don’t think I need a reread but i would love to host The Wizard and Glass (which is the fourth book )stream just because it has been my favorite so far! But I will definitely would love to be in the streams. Also their is a 4.5 book idk how you guys want to go about reading that one if you guys want to read it after the fourth or when we finish the series because we will finish it right?! Lolol the 4.5 book is The wind through the keyhole and it’s fairly short 309 pages but it’s very popular within the constant reader community

That's awesome!  We'll hopefully have dates soon but really excited you're hosting the Wizard and Glass discussion.

I'm in for all 3.  I'm new here so I will just follow along and comment .  No hosting 🤫

That's great to hear!  Let me know if you need a hand or have any questions

Steve

@Stacyejaye

@Mazabooktuber The Wizard and Glass (4th book)

 

I'm good to host anytime, but since I am hosting the KOP discussion in August, I would rather just for book 2 in September

I would be down to take on one of the streams. I am travelling to Nigeria for the first time in 10 years so december and January are a no no for me. I can take the stream in March. @Jeremy Fee you don't have to show your face. you can switch on your audio and shut off your camera. It would be dope to have you for this. Also don't forget about our deal

I will be reading, watching & learning. My life should be more settled by September. Hopefully by then I will know if I want to host one of the later books in the series. If they aren’t already filled up by then. Excited 🤗 I don’t know if this emoji is hugging everyone or just doing jazz hands, either way it works.

1.) Will you be reading this series with us? Sure.

2.) Will you be joining on camera for discussions each month? No.

3.) Do you want to host discussions? No.

Only one book a month? Hmmm... I may end up reading ahead some.

Can always join discussions with just a microphone 😎

Have you down for February, let me know if you'd rather have March to be safe after your trip!

Added all event dates and times to the original post in this thread.  I try to schedule them earlier in the day for our friends overseas, some may change so be sure to keep an eye on the calendar periodically for any changes!

I'm excited!

hey! I’ve been going through a bit of a slump lately so i’m order to get back into the fun of reading I’m going to be stepping away from buddy reads for a bit. I’m doing this so that I don’t have that added pressure and can just relax with my reading. So that means I won’t be joining in on this buddy read. So sorry about that Steve and everyone else! I do hope you all enjoy this series though and am looking forward to hearing your thoughts! Thanks 😁
