The TBR Challenge is progressing nicely and the 888 Challenge is in the hands of fate and the council library, so I’m signing up for a third! I’ve had my eye on this one since before the Bookfest, but didn’t have a sufficient number of suitably enormous books on hand.
Which isn’t the case anymore. (Buy doorstopper-size books just for a challenge? Who, me?)
Post-Bookfest I have more than enough, and have made it an even better challenge by choosing the four biggest:
The Angel of Darkness by Caleb Carr - 804 pages (overlap with 888 Challenge)And the biggest of them all:
The Sunne in Splendour by Sharon Penman - 882 pages
Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes - 901 pages
Shogun by James Clavell - 1243 pages (!)(overlap with 888 Challenge)3,830 pages in total, plus a spur to finally read Don Quixote which has been in my TBR pile for, um, five years. Perhaps I ought to read that first....
