Book Blogger Hop 12

The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jennifer at Crazy for Books.

This week's question is:

What's the LONGEST book you've ever read?



Gosh! I turned straight to Goodreads for the answer to this one. Looks like the longest book I've read in the last couple of years was Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. 1,024 pages, but it was a fast read. It's set in an alternate Napoleonic England, and features two dueling mages and heartless meddling faery folk. I loved it! This has to be one of my favorite books of all time.

  1. This is a book that many coworkers have talked to me about. In my youth I read LONG books all the time but these days I admit I'm a little daunted by anything like that--too much commitment!

  2. It is very long! I started to read it a while back, but ended up setting it down and not picking it back up. It didn't seem to hold my interest.

  3. I still haven't read this one although it's been on my tbr list for a long time. Maybe I'll grab it once I work my way through my current stack...

  4. Had a hard time with this one. Started it, but didn't finish. I think sometimes longer books take more patience, and I guess I just wasn't in the mood....maybe I'll try it again some day.
