Booking Through Thursday (3 September)

Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is… “What’s the biggest book you’ve read recently? (Feel free to think “big” as size, or as popularity, or in any other way you care to interpret.)”

Let me check my recent posts… hmm… I think I have to go with The Time Traveler’s Wife, which I re-read in August. It is pretty long (over 500 pages in my trade paperback) and when I read it it was rather popular, what with the movie coming out and everything.

I could (and will!) also list Princeps’ Fury, which is not a chunkster like some of its brethren but is part of one of those epic fantasy series (though not as epic as some).

Speaking of sweeping epic fantasy series, Scott is trying to get me to continue on with the Wheel of Time series, of which I have read the first book, more than a year ago. I would maybe be interested, but I feel like those are the sort of books you have to read at least rather close to each other or else lose the thread of the story. What do you think? If I’m not planning on reading more than, say, one every two months, is it worth getting into?

    Haven't read any of those, although I've started “Time Traveler” and put it aside. I'm hoping maybe the movie will inspire me to finish the book.

    Time Traveler is a big book and a popular choice it was mine also. I have heard good things about the series but have not read any myself. My brother also liked the series.
