Challenge runs between today January 7th to December 20th to read four big books of approximately 450 pages regular type (or 750 large print). Cross posting books from my other challenges as usual. I do not have page counts of all these books, but on my honour or guestimation, they be chunky:
- Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky – 656p
- Little, Big by John Crowley – 538p
- Complete Poems and Plays by T. S. Eliot – 608p
- Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy – 472p
Lord of the Rings Book II and III
Aristocrats: Caroline, Emily, Louisa, and Sarah Lennox, 1740-1832 by Stella Tillyard – 462p
Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks – 483p
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco -502p
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
…and probably a lot more.
All the books I read over 450 will be countd towards this challenge.
I recommend The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a lot of fun.
