THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: What’s your most favorite “chunky” book? (over 500 pages)

We had another wonderful vacation on the Outer Banks. As I mentioned before we left, I had plans to read... a lot. Well, that was prior to real estate. I worked a fair amount from the beach, so I read less than half what I usually do. That said, working from the beach is heck of a lot better than working from home.

Here is what I got a chance to cross off my TBR List:

Treasure Your Marriage by Cherishing Your Spouse by Suzzanne Uzzell
A Loaded Gun by Jerome Charyn
I Have Faith by Davin Whitehurst
Anna's Healing by Vannetta Chapman

What I am still reading is Portrait of a Conspiracy by Donna Russo Morin. I like it. The story is engaging and the characters interesting. I'm just a bit confused by the whole thing. I feel like I don't know what is going on and I'm twenty chapters in.

I'm also reading A Simple Vow by Charlotte Hubbard. I'll be reviewing this one on July 29th, so be on the lookout for that.

As for my favorite "chunky" book, I would have to go with The Stand by Stephen King. It took me a while to get into, but once I did I was hooked.

What has your reading week been like?

Wow, well done getting any work done on the Beach! No work would have been done if it was me.

Someone recommended The Stand to me as I've never read any Stephen King books but when I saw it was over 1000 pages long I got cold feet. Do you have any suggestions for a first time Stephen King reader?

Happy Reading

I had a hard time coming up with a favorite chunky...although when you mentioned Stephen King, I recalled how I enjoyed 11/22/63.

Hi Rachel, Stephen King is one of those authors I think you need to work up to. Honestly, The Stand didn't make much sense to me until about halfway through the book when everyone started coming together, so it is definitely a commitment. How about Misery about an author being held captive by a crazed fan.

Thanks for visiting, everyone.
