My hesitation to dabble into doorstoppers was overshadowed by my love for Stephen King, and perhaps my penchant for having to watch whatever’s new on television.
There are 1,070 pages in this trade copy of UNDER THE DOME. I timed myself (something that I do, in case we just met) and found out I do 75 pages an hour — the best average I could. So in 14.2 hours, I should be done with it. Now, if I will do an hour a day, or an hour on different days, it remains to be seen.
I will watch the pilot of its television adaptation this weekend but I will not let it halt my reading momentum.
I started reading it and I’m thrilled with what I have read. I hope to sustain it. Conquering a chunkster, I have not done that in a while. Wish me luck.
