Chunkster Challenge

Chunkster Challenge

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.

I am debating about rereading the Diana Gabaldon books for the Chunkster challenge, but I haven't quite decided yet.
