Think Pink Dana saw a void in the reading challenge world so she's filling it with the Chunkster Challenge 2008. Running from January 7 through December 20, the challenge requires at least four books of at least 450 pages in length. (By the way, I've shamelessly borrowed Dana's post title for my own post. I find her sense of humor delightful!)
Here are my four selections:
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (560 pages)
- Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (reportedly about 600 pages, although it's also reportedly not yet completed - so I may have to make a substitution, as I will if its release comes too late)
- The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (1276 pages)
- Possession by B. S. Byatt (576 pages)
Three of these four are already on other challenge lists, and The Count of Monte Cristo is a book that one my reading friends has been encouraging me to read for a while - mostly recently again last night! - so I might as well give it a try!
