Barkskins: A Novel | Annie Proulx

I‘M LOVING THIS. I don‘t know if I can finish it before it is due back at the library, but I love it so much. Over 700 pages! #chunkster #ilikebigbooks

readordierachel I picked up an ex-library copy of this for a couple bucks, but I've been too intimidated to start it. Chunkster indeed. Glad to hear you're loving it! 3d

I was feeling the need to really get lost in a book, and a #chunkster is usually the way for me to get there.
🤞this one delivers.

umbrellagirl Good choice! 1w
AmandaL I just borrowed this from the library! I'm workung on psyching myself up to start it. 1w
Bookish.SAM @AmandaL ... at over 1000 pages, it certainly is daunting! It‘s a little slow so far but a friend recommended it as one of her all time favourites, and I do love a chunkster so I‘ll see it through 😊 1w

The Terror: A Novel | Dan Simmons
post image

I really loved this book!

This is a very long (900+ pages) and highly researched/detailed slow burn of a horror novel. You will join John Franklin‘s (real) lost arctic expedition as they fall victim to relentless isolation, extreme cold, disease, and starvation... along with a bit of supernatural horror for good measure.

I love a good slow burn #chunkster and if you do too, this may be for you!

vivastory I also loved this one 2w

1. I generally ask hubby for cookbooks, but he frequently gives me other books, too. He‘s hit some real winners.
2. Oh, yes, I give books! The grandkids are both getting several. Hubby is on a geology kick, so he‘s getting a #chunkster on paleo biology.

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! Happy Tuesday! ❤📚 2w

What an amazing mystery that addresses the opioid crisis and justice and corruption. This is quite a #chunkster at nearly 500 pages but I read it all in two days in any free time I could muster. A really emotional story that I recommend with my entire heart and soul. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#nextup This book belongs to @Alisnazzy , and it‘s been calling to me for a couple months. Since I finished my nonfiction read, I‘m ready to start this #chunkster.

#BookReport A disappointing week due to high level of work commitments.

Read a total of 1,264 pages and finished one book, Roots, although this was a book of 912 pages!And a favourite!

Next week may not be much better until after Friday anyway.

ljuliel That‘s pretty doggone good, considering you were so busy ! 3w
Crazeedi Disappointed??? You're a bit hard on yourself! You did great!! 3w
Andrew65 @ljuliel @Crazeedi I always am hard on myself! 😂 Just get frustrated when work gets in the way of reading. Only managed 3 hours 5 minutes today. 3w

Crazeedi @Andrew65 I guess you work to read! 😉 that's one nice thing about retirement, I never had time to read like I wanted to 3w
Andrew65 @Crazeedi It does get in the way. Takes up time you want to read, then at the weekend when you have time to read makes you too tired to read. 💤 3w
TheAromaofBooks So annoying when work gets in the way of life!! 3w
Cinfhen Whoa!!!! I forgot how much of a #Chunkster Roots was!!!!! Great reading week 🙌🏻❤️ 3w
Andrew65 @Cinfhen Thanks, given everything else got in as much reading as I could. Roots was 30 hours of audiobook! 3w

Middlemarch | George Elliot

Again, many books would fit this prompt, so I chose one at random. This one is a #chunkster and there‘s lots of characters to keep up with, but it‘s worth the time! #classicyouenjoyed #gratefulreads

SamAnne Has been on my list awhile!
Amiable I finally read this one last year. Wasn‘t my favorite, but better than I expected. 4w
ImperfectCJ ❤️ Middlemarch! I read it a couple of years ago and was pleasantly surprised by the vibrant characters and nimble dialogue. Have you read My Life in Middlemarch by Rebecca Mead? 4w
OriginalCyn620 @ImperfectCJ I have not but it‘s on my TBR! 4w

Another Saturday, another book report. I read Human Voices ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, 150 pages of Our Mutual Friend #chunkster and finished listening to my Harry Potter audiobook, such a good comfort read/listen.
Dad finished Double Cross which he loved - he‘s also read Agent Zigzag by this author and loved it too.
Son and I started The Amber Spyglass as a read aloud.
Gratuitous picture of Dad‘s cats Casey and Charley who read nothing this week.

batsy They seem pretty smug for cats who have read nothing this week! 😆😻 1mo

Night over Water | Ken Follett

Started the November book in the #KenFollettBuddyRead which I am reading with @EadieB and @Tove_Reads
This is a #chunkster at 672 Pages. Sure it will be another great story by Ken Follett.

RachelAmphlett I love his books! 1mo
Andrew65 @RachelAmphlett He is a great author, don‘t think I‘ve ever been disappointed. 1mo
Crazeedi I have to see if I've ever read this one, not sure, but I think not 1mo

Tove_Reads Are you enjoying it? 1mo
Andrew65 Finished now and did enjoy it, quite different to some, very character driven. 1mo
Tove_Reads Yes, I enjoyed it as well, but it‘s not one of my faves. Was a bit slow in the beginning, building up to what it was all about was a bit too long for me. But, then again, many characters. In that way it felt like a Binchy 😂 1mo
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads I think I‘d agree with al, you‘ve said, good but not a favourite. 1mo
