[Update: I decided to start writing Game of Thrones recap posts, so the Dark Tower Big Read is on hiatus at least until the end of season 7 of Game of Thrones. I will still write a review of the Dark Tower movie. You can find all of my Big Read posts on The Gunslinger and The Drawing of the Three below.]
I’ve had my eye on Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series for a while. And I’ve been wanting to do either a re-read series or first read series at Every Day Should Be Tuesday. What better reason to finally get off of my butt (figuratively…I’m literally sitting down at the moment) and get started than the AWESOME trailer for The Dark Tower movie?
I hereby announce my Big Read of The Dark Tower series. Every Monday I will post a recap and reaction to what I read the week before. I’ve read The Stand and The Eyes of the Dragon, so this won’t be my first encounter with the Man in Black. And of course a lot of stuff has filtered down through pop culture over the years, and I watched the trailer and will watch the movie when it comes out (I probably won’t be done with the Big Read by then).
But I’m walking into this as a noob, and I want to keep it that way. If you’ve already read The Dark Tower series, I hope that you will be able to relive that first read experience through me. But, please, NO SPOILERS in the comments. If you haven’t read the series, it’s not too late to pick up a copy of the Gunslinger and starting read along with me.
I have added a Dark Tower tag that you can use to follow along. I will also add links to my post each week to this page, so it will act as an index of sorts and you can just bookmark this page. You can also follow me on Twitter, Google Plus, and Facebook.
