Chunkster Challenge Sticky Post

It’s the end of January and depending on where you live, it’s the perfect season to snuggle up with a chunkster. (Really any time is a good time to crack open a chunkster.) More than 100 people have signed up for the Chunkster Challenge so far!! Thank you.

Every month, you can find announcements about chunkster read-alongs, guest posts, and anything else chunkster-related that I can think of.

Happy reading!

Read-along alert: East of Eden by John Steinbeck

Hey guys! I hope your summer is going well. Instead of shrinking, my summer tbr (to be read) pile is growing as I find book after book that I want to read while the days are long.

The lovely ladies over at The Estella Society are hosting a summer read-along of John Steinbeck’s East of Eden. This chunkster is one of my favorite books of all time. If you’ve always wanted to read the book, now is a great time. The event starts later this month on July 21st and continues until August 18th.

Summer Link-Up

It's summer, the perfect time to read a chunkster. We all have a lot going on in the summer so this linky is different. It's staying up for the whole summer until September 1st. As usual, if you decide not to review one of your reads, feel free to leave a short comment about it in the comments section.
When you provide you link, please link up directly to your review and use the following format:
Your Name (Title of Book - page count)
Also, if you read a chunkster in large print, please put LP somewhere in your link. I've seen links to books that aren't normally chunksters.
Happy summer!

March Link-up

Can you believe that March is here already?! Time is going by so fast. 

How are you doing on the challenge so far? Is there a chunkster that you're dying for others to read? Is there one you're looking forward to reading.

Below is March's linky for reviews. Remember to link up to your review post and not the main page of your blog. For those of you who don't have a blog, be sure to leave a comment letting the rest of us know how you're doing.

Happy reading!!

Hey guys! We're two months into the new year! I know some of you have been diving into chunksters already, reading new books along with old reads.

Your name - (title of the book you read)
If you decide not to review a chunkster you read, leave your thoughts in the comments. We would love to know what did you think about a book.

January 2014 Reviews Link-Up

Thanks to Wendy for this post. Just like the challenge rules have changed, so have the rules for linking your reviews. Please read everything before linking up your review or thoughts.

Here is where you can give us a link to your reviews of the books you read for the 2014 challenge...but please remember, the challenge starts JANUARY 1st - any books read prior to this date do not count!!
When you provide the link to your review, please use the following format:
YOUR NAME (Title of Book)
Please don't include your blog's name. Just your name and the title of the book you read. It's an easy way for participants to find reviews on the chunksters they're interested in.

Example: Wendy (Shantaram)

 When you provide your link on Mr. Linky, please link DIRECTLY to your review (not the main page of your blog). Links which only lead to the main blog will be deleted.

Finally, if you do not have a blog or decide not to review a book, please leave a comment telling me which book you read and your thoughts on it!

 Thanks...and have fun!!!!

Announcement: The Goldfinch Read-along

Thinking about reading one last chunkster before the end of the year?

Unsure as to which one it should be?

Well you're in luck!

I'm hosting a read-along of Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch with Athira from Reading on a Rainy Day. The read-along starts now and continues until the end of the year. This is a laid-back event. If you don't want to write a blog post, don't. Just join us in the discussion at the end of the year. Twitter hashtag: #goldfinch
