Chunkster Challenge 2010


I’m not sure how I missed this one earlier, but I am so in! This year’s Chunkster Challenge is much like last year’s, in that participants read humongous books and then wonder why they don’t have any free time. Ahem.

I managed it last year, so I’m going to sign up for the “Mor-book-ly Obese” challenge, which means I’ll read either six books longer than 450 pages or three books longer than 750 pages, all of the grown-up variety (no Harry Potter!). I didn’t read any of the books I intended to last year, so I’m going to put World Without End and the Wheel of Time series back on the list and hope for the best!

    Might I suggest Proust's “In Search of Lost Time” if you need a thick tome 😛 It's on my to-do list, but I have yet to obtain a printed copy, so it languishes.
