I’m re-reading The Historian and I love it just as much as I did the first time. It is taking me forever due to the book’s heft, but there is nothing I like more than plunging into a nice thick book and swimming around in it for hours. Some of my most favorite books are fatties: Bleak House, Villette, The Count of Monte Cristo…. Good Stuff. I’ve been thinking about fat books for the past few weeks. I love them and they do make the world go ’round.
It is also that time of year when I begin thinking about what I want to read before the end of the year and what plans I have for next year. I usually toss the plans out the window after a month in, but I relish the list-making and organizing of thinking about future reads. My OCD nature loves it just as much as the reading.
You all know where this is leading… I lovely, luscious list of chunksters. Below you’ll find my top ten longish reads I’m dying to read. I’m not including books I own (hint, hint Sam) and I have yet to read these titles.
What fatties are on yourself? Let me know what you want to read and what you’ve read!
