Chunkster Reading Challenge 2013

One more challenge I just couldn't pass up.  (You knew there'd be more.)

Haven't taken part in the Chunkster Challenge for the last couple of years, but I have several big books on my TBR list this year and I'm hoping this challenge will help me remember to read them.  The Chunkster Challenge is hosted by Caribousmom and Vasilly, and runs through December 2013.  There's a dedicated blog HERE, and a sign-up page HERE with all the details.

I'll be joining in at the "Chubby Chunkster" level, so I'll be reading four books of at least 450 pages each.  I'll probably change my mind several times, but I have a long line of chunky tomes on my Possibilities List for this year.  These are just some of them:
  • Angle of Repose. Wallace Stegner
  • Anna Karenina. Leo Tolstoy
  • The Book Thief. Marcus Zusak
  • Buddenbrooks. Thomas Mann
  • The Children's Book. A.S. Byatt 
  • The City of Dreaming Books. Walter Moers 
  • A Gentle Madness: Bibliophiles, Bibliomanes, and the Eternal Passion for Books. Nicholas A. Basbanes
  • Jane Eyre. Charlotte Bronte
  • Labyrinth. Kate Mosse
  • The Lost Symbol. Dan Brown
  • The Mists of Avalon. Marion Zimmer Bradley
  • The Moonstone. Wilkie Collins
  • North and South. Elizabeth Gaskell
  • The Peabody Sisters: Three Women Who Ignited American Romanticism. Megan Marshall
  • The Perpetual Curate. Margaret Oliphant
  • The Secret History. Donna Tartt
  • The Secret Keeper. Kate Morton
  • The Technologists. Matthew Pearl
  • Texas. James A. Michener
  • 11/22/63. Stephen King
And the list goes on and on.... Whatever I end up reading, I'll be tracking my progress over on my challenge blog HERE

  1. This is the one challenge I signed up for this year. :) I'm looking forward to seeing what you read!


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
