'One Big Book' Challenge


This is my personal challenge to read ONE BIG BOOK each year. The book  must be a book I consider to be a challenge. In 2020 I read LONESOME DOVE for the challenge. In 2021 it was DUNE. My 2022 book will be:

Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.

Published in 1939, it won the National Book Award that year and the Pulitzer Prize in 1940. This edition, if it is the edition I purchase, has 479 pages. 

My goal: to finish this book by Dec. 31st, 2022!

Join me?

Pick ONE BIG BOOK that you consider a challenge. Finish it by the end of the year. Let me know the title of your challenge book in the comments.
