- I have realised Stephen King is not for me. The first book I now know was a very bad 1st choice as intro to Stephen King's works, The Girl who Loved Tom Gordon.
- I thought the read a thon would be great to inspire me to read it but I feel pressured. Honestly I shouldn't need to be inspired, first mistake.
- I am a mood reader and dealing with i'm not in the mood to read IT for 5 months is torture to me.
- I enjoy reading 1 book at a time and completely losing myself in it, 1000 pages felt excessive and unnecessary.

Throwing in the towel - IT by Stephen King
I am officially throwing in the towel..... Sorry Anna and Serena.
Trying this book has sealed the deal on my reading style, which is a positive at the end of this.
Thanks to all that commented on my post - What is your page limit? Chunkster books. The discussion helped me to make a decision. Stephen King has a huge following so one less won't hurt his ego or bank account :-)
It is possible I will continue in my own time and maybe a year from now I will say I completed a 1000 page book......
Here’s the reading schedule if still interested in joining.
