Hey #EpicKaTetRead-ers! How are ya'll doing with #SongOfSusannah? Are you enjoying it? Is everyone caught up?
#EpicBuddyRead #TheDarkTower #Roland #StephenKing

Sadly I have had no time to read much this year. Hoping to read some today but we'll see how the chips fall.

BookwormM Have to confess I haven‘t started yet but I will start soon 13mo
BookwormAHN I started a few days ago. I'm not exactly sure where I am since I'm listening to the audio book, but so far its been really good. 13mo

PaperbackPirate I‘m still on Wizard and Glass but thank you for tagging me. I‘ll catch up to you later! 13mo
TK421 I haven't started yet. I have one other book left to finish before I start this. 13mo
MinDea Well I am glad we are all in the same boat! @TK421 @PaperbackPirate @BookwormAHN @BookwormM! 13mo
TrishB Not started yet, but will be done by discussion time 👍🏻 13mo
tonyahoswalt Still way behind, but please keep tagging me 13mo
Jovy Have not started either! Will get to it next week 😅 13mo
ScientistSam Still way behind, but appreciate being tagged! 13mo
collegecatlady I‘m still on Wolves of the Calla but I‘ll get caught up eventually! 13mo
MinDea @collegecatlady on a different note someone is sending you a make up package for #FeedAReader. Should be there around end of month. Again, I'm so sorry for the issues you've had with this swap. 😫 13mo
Andrew65 Still not been able to start this yet. Currently reading two Chunksters, 944 Pages and 768 Pages. When I have finished these I shall get to it and read through and catch up. 13mo
Andrew65 @TrishB Ditto! 13mo
Andrew65 @MinDea 😂😂😂😂Looks like a similar theme for all of us! 13mo
collegecatlady No problem! Thanks for letting me know! 13mo
MinDea @Andrew65 I'm honestly relieved we're all in the same boat cause I am so behind and I really wnat to catch up! 13mo
Andrew65 @MinDea We‘ve still got over a mo th to finish this book and it is shorter than the previous ones. I‘m sure I‘ll finish by 17th Feb. 13mo
AnansiGirl Glad to know we‘re all on the same path with this one. I was slammed with overdrive/libby ebooks I was on wait list all downloading on the same day and Song of Susannah keeps getting shoved aside. 13mo
BookwormM Is there any update on when we will hit the final book? 12mo

Hey #EpicKatetRead-ers! I am very behind this week (on reading in general 😆) but wanted to give everyone a chance to talk if anyone wants to discuss!
#TheDarkTower #Roland #Katet #TheDarkTowerChapterAWeek

MinDea Where is everyone in the series and how are you enjoying it? 1y
TK421 I'm still waaaaay behind. I love the insanity that is Blaine. 1y

MinDea @TK421 Blaine is such a good character. I loved how just crazy he was. He was probably case book psychotic! He had no real rhyme or reason why a train would behave that way yet his backstory made it completely plausible and made sense in the end! 🤯 So good! 1y
tonyahoswalt 2 weeks behind I think. Maybe only one. I did just finish a library book though! Yay, progress! Lol 1y
Jovy I was close to being caught up last week but now I‘m another week off! I agree about Blaine - he‘s one of SK‘s more memorable characters despite his short stint in the book. Love the riddling in the train! 1y
BookwormAHN I'm caught up. I also loved Blaine. He was nuts and extremely entertaining. 1y
TrishB Not started still!! Sorry - life events have thrown me off track a bit...... 1y
MinDea No worries @TrishB. Hope everything is OK! 1y
GrilledCheeseSamurai I'm a week behind now. That's okay though cuz now I get to read more this week. 👌 1y
AnansiGirl Life threw me off track and I got behind . I‘ll be taking a stay-cation midweek and get myself caught up with Roland & Co. adventures. 1y
MinDea @GrilledCheeseSamurai @AnansiGirl I am 2 weeks behind! I picked it up past night but didn't make much progress. Hoping to this weekend. 1y
Andrew65 I am at least two weeks behind 😔, still on the first half of part II but final,y had a chance to pick it up again. Agree though Blaine was the best part of the series so far. 1y

TrishB Haven‘t seen that cover before! 1y
MinDea I have a totally different cover and have never seem that one. I think it is from the illustrations in my book though. 🤔🤔 1y

What do you believe causes things to happen?

Is it Fate? Are your choices and your life written out before you even existed?

Do you believe in "what will be, will be"?

Trashcanman It is what it is. There's no order. There's just growth and decay. 1y

tonyahoswalt On one hand, I want to believe in fate. There are several connections between my and my husband's lives from before we ever met, even as children. But I also want to think we can change things. 1y
EadieB I believe that different opportunities are presented to us and we have the free will to accept or turn down these opportunities and based upon our decisions is which way your life will go. If I look back on my life I can see some type of force that has guided me to my decisions. Be it God or intuition, I‘m not sure, but my life has gone pretty well. I‘ve had a few bumps along the way but somehow made it through and has made me a stronger person. (edited) 1y
jmofo I don‘t believe in fate or a cosmic ledger. I suspect things cause other things but I also suspect we are so limited in our understanding we can never know what the truck is going on. 1y
jmofo This is it in a fun comic: https://xkcd.com/552/ 1y
MinDea @jmofo 😆😆 my degree is in Statistics (and I do that for a living) so that comic made me laugh! 1y
jmofo @MinDea that comic is basically me 1y
BookwormAHN @jmofo I agree. I also don't believe in fate and if there is some order to the universe we are not individually big enough to see it. 1y
jmofo @BookwormAHN I find I am compulsive about understanding things or finding causes, although I have no faith in getting it. I feel like a person who has to check the door one more time to be sure I locked it and that one more time is never the last. Do you have that? 1y
MinDea @jmofo I do that... Checking the door to see if it is locked... but I think that is OCD. 😆😆😆 (Or at least it is for me!) 1y
BookwormAHN @jmofo Absolutely, I can and will go overboard looking for answers and I love researching but I'm not always sure that some questions really have answers and those drive me nuts. 1y
BookwormAHN @MinDea @jmofo I also compulsively check to see if I've started the dishwasher 🤦🏼‍♀️ 1y
jmofo @MinDea Yeah, totally! That‘s what I‘m saying, but I‘m not OCD with doors, but with understanding, causality and purpose. I‘m always checking for it but I don‘t believe in them... but I might be mistaken or I overlooked something 😬 1y
jmofo @BookwormAHN that must be a super quiet dishwasher! 😆 1y
MinDea @BookwormAHN I have to check to make sure I turn off /unplug my curling iron like 3 times every day! 😆😆😆 1y
TrishB Interesting question! But are we answering based on our thoughts of the The Dark Tower or on our own beliefs? Personally, we an make decisions, but life is chaotic and things don‘t always work out. 1y
Megabooks I believe in free will. No predestination. Great question! 1y
MinDea @TrishB your own beliefs! We can talk about The Dark Tower this weekend! 🙌 1y
sudi I believe destiny in the end is just choices we make in life as humans, when we sometime makes wrong decisions we blame it on fate and if we take the right decision which proves beneficial to us, we say it didn't happen because of fate but our own ability. Basically fate is a thing humans created to blame for all the bad decisions they make in life . 1y
BookwormM I think given the exact same circumstances we would always make the same choice so predetermination is at work 1y
MinDea @Sudi. I always felt "fate" had a more positive connotation to it. Like "We met because of fate!" "Fate brought you here!", etc. So I think your response is very interesting! 1y
TK421 I have never believed in fate, destiny, or even luck. We may not be able to control all of our circumstances, but we can make our own choices. 1y
AnansiGirl Wow I‘ve never taken time to question whether or not I believe in fate, luck or destiny ever in my life. That is something I will have to debate on because I honestly don‘t know. (edited) 1y
ericas There's no such thing called free will, we're free to take whatever direction we want but ultimately there's only one which is good for us. Finding and following it is just a matter of time and speed we're able of to ride changement. 1y

tonyahoswalt Chloe looks excited(?) Unhappy? I don't know if she likes the book! Lol 1y
mcipher Awww! She looks like she is getting ready to sing to you! My Chloe is yowling up and down the hallway right now. 😝 1y
MinDea @mcipher she's purring in this picture 💙 Her purr sounds kind of like a raptor (that's what we call it anyways). It's very loud! 😆😆😆 Chloe doesn't yowl very much but Shadow yowls all the time. Especially during his zoomies! 😆 1y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Heck ya I'm in for book 4! Gonna finish Waste land off tomorrow and I'll be all ready. 👌 1y

The Waste Lands is book 3 from Stephen King‘s epic saga The Dark Tower. Roland, Eddie, Susannah and Jake are moving closer to the Dark Tower. The book seems like a haunting dream that is breath taking. The reader is quickly drawn in. I loved all the riddles Blaine asked the group. I‘m looking forward to book 4, Wizard and Glass. I recommend this series for those who love action fantasy!
