Welcome to Monday Potpourri. Today’s event is Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
What is the longest book you have ever read? How long did it take you to read it?
Wow, that’s quite a question! I know that I did read the whole Bible when I was a teenager, and can’t remember how long it took.
Another long one was Gone with the Wind, and again…I don’t know how long it took, since I read it in high school, sandwiched in between homework, school, etc. But I do recall that I read it about three times! On Amazon, it lists the number of pages as 960…I do recall the book I read had more than 1,000 pages.
I bought it a few months ago so that I could reread it.
I also read Forever Amber in high school; Amazon shows 976 pages. Again…sandwiched in between other activities. I can barely remember high school…lol; but I do remember reading those two books, along with many other favorites.
I almost forgot: War and Peace, at 1296 pages and Atlas Shrugged, at 1200.
Nowadays, when I have a chunkster to read, I usually read it only occasionally, in between other books.
What about the rest of you? What’s your largest chunkster?
