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. I started this challenge in 2020 and have found it to be personally rewarding.


In 2023 my ONE BIG BOOK will be THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO which will be the biggest big book yet.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
The book was published in French in 1844, with help from a ghost writer. 
Depending on the edition, it has over 1000 pages! 
I've ordered my own copy and hope to get started on it soon.

My goal: to finish this book by Dec. 31st, 2023!
