1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST
    Reopening Sunday November 29 at 12:01 AM EST

    I watched movie 15-16 years ago for first time and fell in love, so I had to own and read book. I liked it just as much as film. I relate to Carrie White because a lot of us have been bullied. The face that SK based her off 2 real people he knew makes it even more heartbreaking and tragic. An all time favorite novel, and too, a treasure of mine.

    My first SK book which I could also relate to. It got his fright train on track. And to think the manuscript was rescued from the trash bin.

    I know! I am forever grateful to Tabitha for rescuing it!! It is interesting the differences between prom scene from book and movie. Book it was well executed, but I like how she stood on stage in films. I'm glad you relate to Carrie as well.
