October's Book Club Selection - The Shining

Hello Everyone,

October's Book Club selection has been chosen by Sally; she decided on The Shining by Stephen King. Thanks, Sally!!! This is a thriller/horror for anyone who likes these kinds of books (I certainly do!).
This book was made into a movie in 1980, called The Shining starring Jack Nicholson. Please click here to read more about the book.

About THE SHINING (book):
First published in 1977, The Shining quickly became a benchmark in the literary career of Stephen King. This tale of a troubled man hired to care for a remote mountain resort over the winter, his loyal wife, and their uniquely gifted son slowly but steadily unfolds as secrets from the Overlook Hotel's past are revealed, and the hotel itself attempts to claim the very souls of the Torrence family. Adapted into a cinematic masterpiece of horror by legendary Stanley Kubrick -- featuring an unforgettable performance by a demonic Jack Nicholson --The Shining stands as a cultural icon of modern horror, a searing study of a family torn apart, and a nightmarish glimpse into the dark recesses of human weakness and dementia.
About the Author:
Stephen King is the author of more than fifty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. Among his most recent are Hearts in Atlantis, The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon, Bag of Bones, the screenplay Storm of the Century, and The Green Mile. His acclaimed nonfiction book, On Writing, was also a bestseller. He lives in Bangor, Maine, with his wife, novelist Tabitha King.

If you'd like to participate please pick up a copy (old or new) of the selected title as soon as you can and please do your best to read it before October 15th, 2009.
You can purchase a copy, borrow it from a friend or family member or you can borrow a copy from your local library.

All official members will meet (online) on Saturday, October 17th, 2009 in a specified meeting place. For our unofficial yet equally appreciated members, we will post some of the discussions in a post the day following the online gathering. This post will be on the Bloggers Unite Book Club blog and it will provide an opportunity for everyone to discuss the monthly selection in further detail and allow everyone to contribute their ideas and opinions.

We are still accepting new members so feel free to fill out the Bloggers Unite Book Club Registration Form if you would like to become an Official Member.
