Chunkster Challenge 2009




I saw this challenge out there and I thought "Why not?" I love reading big books and I have had two Wally Lamb novels sitting on my bookshelf for the last couple of years. I know I will be reading at least one of those in this challenge.



I am going to sign up for the Chubby Challenge so I only have to commit to reading 2 chunky books before November 15th. I think I can do it, but there are more challenging options available if you feel that 2 books are not enough for you.

1. The Kingmaking by Helen Hollick-Completed 9/12/2009

2.

Ooo - which Lamb books? I read the one about the twins - "I Know This Much Is True" I think it was called? (did you ever notice all his titles are song lyrics?) I loved it - whipped right through all those pages - it was so interesting.

Bumbles: I have I Know This Much is True and She's Come Undone...It's looks like She's Come Undone is less than 500 pages though so I won't be reading that one for the challenge. It's good to know that you enjoyed I Know This Much is True...Now I'm looking forward to it!

I loved both "I Know This Much Is True" and "She's Come Undone." I really want to read his latest book. It looks just as interesting!

Good luck with your challenge!
