In 2012 I am participating in the Chunkster Reading Challenge. The rules are simple: the only books that count for the challenge are works of adult literature (fiction, non-fiction or poetry) with at least 450 pages. Additional rules/clarifications can be found at the link.
I am aiming for the "Chunkster" level, which means I will read 4 books with the above criteria. My choices are below.
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Complete Tales & Poems by Edgar Allen Poe
Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Alternate: The Odyssey by Homer (translated by Robert Fagle, because Fagle is boss.)
I already own all of these and they really need to be read. THEREFORE.
