Here is where you can give us a link to your reviews of the books you read for the challenge...but please remember, the challenge starts FEBRUARY 1st - any books read prior to this date do not count!!
I am planning to ultimately create a list of books which could be eligible for the chunkster challenge and I want to organize them by page count...so when you provide the link to your review, please use the following format:
YOUR NAME (Title of Book - page count)
Example: Wendy (Shantaram - 944)
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, please leave a comment telling me which book you read, your thoughts on it, and how many pages it was!
Thanks...and have fun!!!!

Wow-- top two!!!ReplyDelete
I don't have a blog,but I would love to join this challenge.ReplyDelete
Rachel D: As per the guidelines for this challenge there is ABSOLUTELY NO REQUIREMENT THAT YOU HAVE A BLOG to participate. You do not need to post reviews...I added Mr. Linky for those who wish to post them. You can leave me a comment in this section if you want to let us know what you have read for the challenge (and the page number)...as I noted above :)ReplyDelete
I just read Smoke Screen by Sandra Brown. It was 533 pages. It was a really good book. I have not written a review. However if and when I do I will come back and link to it!ReplyDelete
I just linked to my post about Blame, which squeaked in at 525 large-print pages. Really good read.ReplyDelete
Wendy-I thought I was adding my link to the sign-up Mr. Linky. I'm sorry! Can you delete the one on this Mr. Linky that says Eva (A Striped Armchair)?ReplyDelete
No problem, Eva - all taken care of! Glad to see you joining us :)ReplyDelete
Bummer. I see a "free stuff" spam link in there. Can someone in authority delete that?ReplyDelete
Oh, and I just finished my first chunkster. Need to write my review and will link it here.
Jeff: Thanks for the heads up - it's gone now. I hate that stuff!!!! Congrats on finishing your first chunkster :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Wendy. And I just posted a link to my review of The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood. I wish it was a good review. *sigh*ReplyDelete
I have read Smash Cut by Sandra Brown. It was 512 pages.ReplyDelete
I also read Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner. It was 557 pages!
Just thought I would let you know so you can add them to the list of chunky books!!
My first chunkster is When Christ and His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman, 909 pages. Historical novel about the civil war in twelfth-century England - highly recommended.ReplyDelete
Miss Moppet...I love Sharon Kay Penman's books!ReplyDelete
Sorry, I accidentally linked to the main page of my blog, rather than the post where I reviewed The Children's Book: the actual link is here.ReplyDelete
I don't think I can go back and edit it... do let me know if I need to delete the link and start again!
All fixed, Jenny :)ReplyDelete
I posted a few chunksters I finished, I am up to 6!ReplyDelete
I know I just signed up for this challenge, but I did just finish The Eustace Diamonds by Anthony Trollope and it made me want to read more big books! So I hope it counts, but if not, I'm sure I'll read 3 others.ReplyDelete
Forgot the page numbers.ReplyDelete
Lancaster Brides is 478 pages, Centennial is 1,086 pages, and The Lexus and the Olive Tree (which I did not review) is 512 pages.
Ack! #171 is a repeat; I didn't remember that I'd already posted that review up.ReplyDelete
Just finished Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell. Unlike some other long books I have read, I wouldn't cut a single word, and that in itself is a big compliment.ReplyDelete
Gosh darn it! I forgot to leave the page numbers.ReplyDelete
There were 590 pages in my copy of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and 496 in Echoes.
Oops! I forgot to change the title in my posting of my third book (no. 197 in the list). It's supposed to be The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, at 576 pages.ReplyDelete
sorry, I seem to have linked up two of mine twice. I promise, I did a search first but it didn't find them. My Outlander is at 52 and 200, and my Swan Thieves is at 51 and 201. Can you delete one of each of those? Thanks!ReplyDelete
Sorry, #229 shouldn't be there. I thought I was in the spot to put the wrap up post ... I got it right the second time :-(ReplyDelete
Cutting for Stone 533 pagesReplyDelete
Hmmm...where is the Mr. Linky? I saw the list of links for books already posted, but didn't see the linky thingie. I read Bloodroot by Amy Greene, large-print edition of 549 pages, review here: http://www.newcenturyreading.com/2011/02/bloodroot.htmlReplyDelete
Hi Amy, thanks for the reminder to start a new link up for the 2011 challenge! I've added your review to that Mr. Linky which can be found here.ReplyDelete
