It has literally been forever since I have done a Follow Friday… well maybe that’s an exaggeration, but it has been at least since the logo has changed. *hangs head in shame* My only excuse is that I have been busy. Very, very, very busy…. Okay, I’ll admit it’s a fairly lame excuse, but it’s the only one that I’ve got. So, enough with the excuses, here’s this week’s intriguing question:

What is the longest book you’ve read?

What are your favorite 600+ page reads?

I don’t read many long, long, long books, but I have to admit, if I’m going to read one I usually turn to Stephen King. This book is the first of his that I have read in years. It made me realize how much I’ve missed his writing. The true test of a long book is that while you’re reading it, the length is the fartherest thing from your mind. You just keep turning pages and stay engrossed. This book accomplished that in spades. You can check out my review of 11/22/63 here. It was one of the most intriguing books that I read in 2011. I read it in ebook format and honestly had no idea how long it was until I checked the page count out for this post. It was that good. (FYI – the hardcover version is 849 pages.)

    • Since I read it in ebook format, I didn’t realize it either. It was a really great read and took me totally by surprise. When you think Stephen King, you automatically think horror. That’s not the genre of this book at all. Not that it wasn’t scary, it was. But that was simply because it made you think. Those are the best kind of books 🙂

  1. If you consider the fact that the version of The Lord of The Rings I read was the one that’s one book with the 3 parts inside (1202 pages in the brazilian version), that would be the longest book I’ve ever read. But if you consider series to favorite 600+ page reads, hands down, Harry Potter. Not so much for the story, but for the feeling it brings me every time I think about it.

    I’m a new Twitter follower, btw!
