Sometimes Change is Good...

A new year.

The addition of a new administrator.

Some new changes to the rules.

So, why not a new look too? Stop by and enjoy the whimsical feel we've adopted. And while you're here, check out our contact page and about page - and see what we're doing to help you find the chunky books you have always wanted to read - so far we have suggestions by page number, and Vasilly is working hard to put together a page for suggestions by genre (stay tuned!).

We are also REALLY excited about hosting the first ever Chunky Book Club - visit the Book Club page and the introductory post where you can vote on the books we will be reading in 2012. Watch for a schedule by January 11th.

This year we will also be highlighting selected chunksters in two ways:
  • Randomly selected books and reviews from the Mr. Linky reviews for 2012, AND
  • Features of brand new fiction coming out in 2012 which meet the criteria of a chunkster. These will include guest posts by authors and giveaways!
Our first featured book will be The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman - watch for information about this book, a feature by the author and a giveaway to one lucky winner in January. Please note that to be eligible for the giveaway you must be signed up for the Chunkster Challenge (since the January giveaway overlaps both the 2011 and 2012 challenge, all participants signed up for 2011, as well as those signed up in 2012 will be eligible - if you've signed up for both, then you get a double entry)!

FTC Disclosure: Book giveaways and featured book articles are NOT paid promos. Although books for giveaway will be supplied by the publisher (in most cases), The Chunkster Challenge administrators do not accept payment to host these special events.

We are really excited about the changes and additions we are making to the blog, and hope that you will find them to be an added benefit to joining us here. Please consider subscribing to this blog to keep up to date on all that is happening.


We love discussion! Please tell us what you think!
