So, here's the sad news. I've found yet another really neat, really unavoidable challenge (will you people please stop coming up with these!). I know I've already signed up for just about every reading challenge on the internet. But the Chunkster Challenge, hosted by Dana of So Many Books So Little Time (so true!), looks like a cinch. It runs until November 15th, and requires as few as two books. And allows crossovers with other challenges. See what I mean? A cinch.
For the purposes of the challenge, a "chunkster" is defined as 450 pages or more of literature written for adults (so no children's or YA titles). Fiction or non- is allowed, but no audiobooks. There are several reading levels to choose from:
- The Chubby Chunkster - this option is for the reader who has a large tome or two to read, but really doesn't want to commit to more than that. 2 books is all you need to finish this challenge.
- Do These Books Make My Butt Look Big? - this option is for the slightly heavier reader who wants to commit to 3-5 Chunksters over the next ten months.
- Mor-book-ly Obese - This is for the truly out of control chunkster. For this level of challenge you must commit to 6 or more chunksters OR three tomes of 750 pages or more. You know you want to.....go on and give in to your cravings.
- And lastly, in an intriguing collaboration with the wildly popular Miz B of the TBR Challenge we have:
Too Big To Ignore Anymore - this option is for those chunksters on your TBR list. You may select any number of books over 450 pages but you must LIST THEM to complete the challenge and they must be on your TBR list as well
