Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger HopHosted by Jen at Crazy-For-Books.

This week's question: “What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)


Hmm...for me, it would have to be either "Anna Karenina" by Leo Tolstoy OR "Gone With the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell. I'm not sure which one is longer but they're both pretty hefty...and both were really great! "Anna Karenina" was reeeeally hard for me to get into until like page 200, but it was worth the effort.

  3. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  5. I read and loved both of those books. I agree with you about Anna Karenina , it does take a while to get into.
