2012 Chunkster Reading Challenge
This challenge has its own blog, Chunkster Reading Challenge. The challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012 and you can sign-up anytime during the year.
I've been back and forth over whether or not I want to commit to this challenge, but I decided to just throw my hat into the ring. I have many chunksters sitting on my shelves, so hopefully by joining this challenge I will become motivated to finally get to a few of them.
I will be a Chubby Chunkster and aim to read four chunkster books this year. I don't know which four books I want to read for this challenge yet, so I'll just list all the ones I own that I am considering. The only one I am sure about is Helen of Troy because it is part of another challenge I am doing.
-Helen of Troy by Margaret George (611 pg)
-The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (1276 pg)
-The Cider House Rules by John Irving (598 pg)
-The Stand by Stephen King (1152 pg)
-A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers (496 pg)
-The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson (465 pg)
-Personal History by Katharine Graham (642 pg)
