Do you like settling in with a big ole tome? A book you can live in for a while? Or maybe you’re scared of chunksters and need a little motivation to pick one up? Then here’s the challenge for you…
Sign-ups are going on now for the 2014 Chunkster Challenge. What is a chunkster? A book over 450 pages! Easy, right?
There are a few changes that have come to this challenge. Namely, audiobooks and e-books are fair game. You don’t have to worry about breaking your wrists carrying around your chunkster.
Go sign up now to get in on the challenge!
We’re a little later to the game than anticipated, but better late than never to this party, right?? It’s Virtual Advent time! This is a holiday staple in the blogosphere and we couldn’t miss it. While the advent has already started, if you email the lovely ladies in charge they will probably hook you up with a date later in the month.
Check out the schedule and get to adventing!
Who doesn’t love Wilkie Collins? Well, me, since I’ve never read any of his books (says Andi). BUT, this is a prime opportunity, if you’re new to Wilkie or a long-time fan, to join others in reading a couple of his novels for our Wilkie in Winter event! This event is brought to you by Amanda from Fig and Thistle, in tandem with The Estella Society (Andi and Heather).
That’s right, kids, we’re reading TWO Wilkie selections this winter!
First is the lesser-known novella, The Frozen Deep, weighing in at about 100 pages. We’ll start reading this one on December 21 and we’ll discuss it here and link-up our reviews on January 7!
The Woman in White will take just a touch longer. We’re stretching this one out a bit to allow for post-holiday reading hangovers. We will post questions here on the alloted days and you can link up your own discussion posts!
Epoch 1 – January 27
Epoch 2 – February 10
Epoch 3 – February 24
If your edition is not split into Epochs, I think you can safely read your book in thirds.
Now, go forth and spread the word! Because what’s more fun than a cozy winter Readalong?
Feel free to express your intent to join us below (or don’t). We’re pretty laid back.
