The Chunkster Challenge is back! This year I’m going for the “Do These Books Make My Butt Look Big?” category and committing to reading four doorstoppers before November 15. Specifically:
Possession - A. S. Byatt (re-read) - 510 pages
Bleak House - Charles Dickens (overlap with What’s in a Name? 2) - 808 pages
The Magus - John Fowles - 656 pages
Drums of Autumn - Diana Gabaldon - 880 pages
So close to having three truly enormous books for the “More-book-ly Obese” category! Still, I expect the Dickens with be challenge enough all by itself - the only book of his I have ever finished is the brief A Christmas Carol. Third time lucky, I hope.
