Chunkster Challenge 2019
Becky at Becky's Book Reviews has devised a new challenge to read chunkster books, that is, books over 450 pages. A good goal! There are various ways to earn extra credit points, but the basic count is five points for a book of over 450 pages. She challenges us to score 100 points for an A+. Head over to her challenge post for full details.
A quick scan of what I read this year and I think I got 61 points without particularly trying. But that would clearly be a failing grade... I'm going to aim for that A+, but I will call a B- (80) an acceptable grade.

Yay! You're joining too! We can hold each other accountable and do the old chunkster-nudge during the year if we're falling off. ;-) I'm interested to see what your choices will be ...ReplyDelete
I saw you and O and Jean were all doing it and I thought I've got to jump in! I'm looking forward to see what we all read.Delete
And I've got my first one: Stefan Zweig's The World of Yesterday. I picked it up at the library on Christmas Eve and since there's a waiting list I'm going to have to return it in three weeks. 454 pages--it squeaks in!
Glad you're joining too! We'll all be buried under massive tomes come June.ReplyDelete
It's all your fault, you know... ;)Delete
Well, have fun, you two! I've just grabbed Don Quixote on a whim. I've read it before but I found a chapter-a-day read-along which will be manageable. Good grief, I can never stick to planned lists! Is there some sort of help-group for this problem, lol?! ;-)ReplyDelete
I know! That's why Adam's TBR challenge will probably be the hardest for me. I've got to pick a list of books and stick to them? What?!Delete
That's WHY I join Adam's challenge -- because I'm so bad at it!Delete
This is a great challenge, but I have a lot of trouble with chunksters. Even ones that I really love. So I try to keep it down to one a year.ReplyDelete
I'm going to have to read some gigantic swords and sorcery books to have any chance at all. It's been a few years since I reread Lord of the Rings, hmm,...Delete
