- A chunkster is 450 pages or more of ADULT literature (fiction or nonfiction) ...
- If you read large type books your book will need to be 525 pages or more ... The average large type book is 10-15% longer or more so I think that was a fair estimate.
- No Audio books.
- No e-Books allowed - we are reading traditional, fat books for this challenge.
- Short Stories and Essay collections will not be counted.
- Books may crossover with other challenges
There are 3 Level to choose from: (I chose number 2)
- The Chubby Chunkster - this option is for the reader who has a couple of large tomes on their TBR list, but really doesn't want to commit to much more than that. 3 books is all you need to finish this challenge.
- Do These Books Make my Butt Look Big? - this option is for the slightly heavier reader who wants to commit to 4 Chunksters over the next twelve months.
- Mor-book-ly Obese - This is for the truly out of control chunkster. For this level of challenge you must commit to 6 or more chunksters OR three tomes of 750 pages or more.
What four books did I choose? Thanks again for asking!!!
- Of course there is the book that I am currently reading, Moby Dick (over 600 pages) because of the additional reading challenge I am in.
- 48 Laws of Power (452 pages - barely made the list)
- The Autobiography of Malcolm X (527 pages)
- ?????? Do you guys have any suggestions?
There was a wonderful reason (other than me really wanting to read them) for choosing these particular books for the challenge. The reason is.....wait for it........
They crossover with the other challenges (and also my summer reading list) that I am participating in. (I know...I know)
Are any of you guys participating in the "Chunkster" challenge? If so tell me what books you chose because as you can see, I need one more book to read for this challenge!!!
OH! The challenge ends January 31, 2010 (so I may chose to read the last book during my winter break from school!! - I have the book "Roots" by Alex Haley but I feel that it is too heavy to read during the school year.)
