I perused the towering piles of books waiting to be read on my bookshelf and came up with a great idea - with no book group commitments to get in the way, I am going to tackle some of the Big Books on my shelf that I've been postponing because I never seem to have time to get all the way through them.
Last week, I got a good start by re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, definitely a Big Book at 759 pages. Now I have started The Passage by Justin Cronin, with a hefty 766 pages, a book that I really wanted to read but have been putting off since last July because of its intimidating size.
What's next? Maybe you can help me decide. Here are a few other Big Books currently on my shelf:
- Under the Dome by Stephen King, 1074 pages (the biggest!)
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, 850 pages
- Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, 973 pages
