As in past summers I am joining the Big Book Summer Challenge which gives me an excuse to read at least one big book, over 400 pages, during our warmest months. All I have to do is read at least one long book, write an entry post (this one) and an exit post in September with my updates. I am going to attempt to read three or four big books, which won't be that hard since I've already read two. Ha! Join in the fun. Click the link above for more details and to sign up.
My list of possible selections:
- The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry @478 pages. Update: completed.
- The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen @450 pages. Update: completed
- Draw the Line by Laurent Linn @528 pages. Update: hold placed on library book
- We Are the Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson @455. Update: checked out from my library but I haven't started it.
- Oscar and Lucinda by Peter Carey @665 pages. Update: the book was given to me this past week by a friend from Australia.
- The Slap by Chistos Tsiolkas @570 pages. Update: another gift book.
