It’s December which means this year’s Chunkster Challenge is coming to an end. If you wrote a wrap-up post or plan to, please use Mr. Linky below to link up to your post. If you don’t have a blog, leave a comment in the comments section telling us how you did with this challenge. We would all love to know what your favorite chunkster was this year. Was there a chunkster you didn’t enjoy? Let us know that too.I think this may be my best challenge of the year, in that it got me to read some of the most rewarding books. I said a couple of days ago that Anna Karenina, A Suitable Boy, and In the First Circle were some of my best books for 2013. I also really enjoyed nearly all my other picks, except for one. Pamela started off well but went downhill, especially in the second volume. I should have just read the first one.
- Anna Karenina, by Lev Tolstoy (963 pages)
- Portrait of a Lady, by Henry James (789 pages)
- Zaremba, or Love and the Rule of Law, by Michelle Granas (518 pages)
- Pamela, by Samuel Richardson (926 pages)
- In the First Circle, by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (741 pages)
- A Suitable Boy, by Vikram Seth (1474 pages)
- The Doll, by Boleslaw Prus (680 pages)
- The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas (1274 pages)
I will be doing this challenge again in 2014, so you'll see a sign-up post soon. I'm even thinking of doing a Les Miserables read-along, maybe over the summer--anybody interested?
