Mdargusch @Tanisha_A I haven‘t read Fountainhead but Atlas Shrugged certainly is interestingly prophetic. 2mo
Mdargusch I feel like there wasn‘t such a huge number of books written back in those days @Melissa_J or else we all just read the same thing. 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2mo
Mdargusch Seriously! @Cinfhen and I never gave it a second thought about reading a chunkster back in the old days. (edited) 2mo
LeahBergen Yep! 2mo
minkyb Almost coffee table height @Cinfhen 😂😍😘‼️ 2mo

Quote from Frieda Hughes to start this book. Finally started this - my shoulder will be aching carrying this about this week!! It‘s a rather large book.

Cinfhen Oh God!!! It must be #SuperChunky if you are calling it rather large 😂 (edited) 12mo
LeahBergen That quote. ❤️ 12mo
TrishB @Cinfhen 1424 pages 😁 and an additional 30 page introduction!! 12mo

TrishB @LeahBergen sometimes I need to remind myself that they were someone‘s parents 😔 It‘s easy to look in from the outside and be fascinated. Living with that legacy. 12mo
Leftcoastzen Wow incredible quote, getting ready to start this brick as well. 12mo
TrishB @Leftcoastzen been on the pile for a while and today suddenly said hello read me!! 12mo
Cinfhen 😱😱😱😱😱 @minkyb 12mo
batsy Such a poignant quote. 12mo
Centique Wow! I thought I had read this but it turned out mine was the edited down version. Would love to hear what you think of this huge edition! 12mo
TrishB @Centique I‘ve read the previous version too- hadn‘t realised how edited it was until I got this one! 12mo
Centique @TrishB that‘s so interesting to hear! I‘m going to have to read this I see 👍 12mo
minkyb I love that Trish is posting her own #BigBookAlerts. 1,400 pages of Sylvia Plath is heavy indeed! 12mo
TrishB @minkyb it definitely is! 12mo

A Column of Fire | Ken Follett

If real life didn‘t happen I would have finished this today! Family stuff to do and work week to get ready for! Some so-so reviews for this , but have to say I‘m loving it!! Looking forward to the rest of it tomorrow.

Andrew65 I loved it too, but a different feel to the first two books. Life does have a way of getting in the way! 13mo
Mdargusch So close! That real life stuff always gets in the way. 😫 13mo

TrishB @Andrew65 it‘s a great read 👍🏻 13mo

This is my long weekend read - been waiting for a chance when I may have a few hours a day! Didn‘t want to be carrying it back and forth to work.
1233 pages @Cinfhen #bigbookmonitor

Sophoclessweetheart Enjoy!! Xx 14mo
Cinfhen Thank you 🙏🏻 I‘ve been slacking at my monitoring duties 😘😘😘 14mo

LoverofLit I'm so excited to find time to read his third installment of this series! The end of that first book and the whole second book was unputdownable! 14mo
TrishB @JoRead it‘s brilliant! 14mo
TrishB @LoverofLit it has a lot to live up to to be as good as the second one! One of the best in a fantasy series! 14mo
Ddzmini What are the other books in this series 😝 14mo
Titania Your cover is so much better than my son's cover! 14mo
TrishB @Ddzmini The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance are the first two. Can highly recommend if you like fantasy 👍🏻 14mo
TrishB @Titania I much prefer the UK covers for these! I didn‘t realise it was signed until I got it off the pile. It was a present off hubby - don‘t know if he knew! 14mo
Titania @TrishB I agree! The US fantasy covers are so cheesy and cringe worthy. The UK covers are always so much more slick and appealing. 14mo
Ddzmini Thank you @TrishB 14mo

#MarchIntoOz #TheHoneymoonIsOver

The honeymoon didn't last long for Guy and Harriet Pringle. This edition doubly relevant since Ken and Em met on the set of the TV adaptation. I'm playing catch up because I really want to do all of this challenge!

batsy This series is so amazing 💜 I really need to read the books. 1y
Cinfhen @minkyb this book is a hidden surprise 924 pages😱 #BigBookMonitor #Alert 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 1y
CarolynM @Cinfhen To be fair there are 3 novels in there so that's only 308 pages each😂 1y

MayJasper @Meg11726 I also have the third to read. Much to look forward to 💙 1y
Cinfhen #BigBookMonitor Alert 🚨🚨🚨#pagecountphobia but maybe one day 😁 1y
MayJasper #cinfhen yes it's a chunkster ❣ but there is something special that I can't put my finger on about 1y
Blaire I loved pillars of the earth. It‘s big but a page turner so actually reads really fast. I never did get to the other two - not sure why. 1y
ReadingRuby I bought Pillars of the Earth years ago, but it‘s still too daunting... maybe next year 1y
