So sorry I forgot to post this earlier, Erika! You deserve your kudos for bringing this chunkster to its knees. :)

I‘ll be joining @Andrew65 for the #20in4 #readathon this weekend.

I sometimes aim for 20 chapters. My goal this time is to get through the 24 remaining chapters in The Sunne in Splendour, and finish up my #ChunksterChallenge2021 before December. 🤞

Thanks for hosting Andrew 😊 - pleased to have a tiny bit more incentive to get this finished!

Andrew65 Great to have you with us. I loved (edited) 1w

#ChunksterChallenge2021 update! @Amiable

The bookmarks are edging their way further back in the book - I‘m on p788/1240. Still hopeful of finishing before the end of the year. Apparently it‘s only been 6 months (I‘m counting that as a win)!

And yes, I am still enjoying it - just slowly.

And what ARE they going to do about George?!

(Edited because it‘d help if I had the right hashtag!!)

Amiable Excellent l!! Slow and steady wins the race —and finishes the chunkster! 👍🏼 2w
CoverToCoverGirl Definitely one I need to read. 2w
rockpools @Amiable 😂😂 A little more slow than steady, but we‘re getting there! 2w
rockpools @CoverToCoverGirl Ooh, yes, do! It‘s a fab read - I just make a bit of a fuss about anything over 300 pages! 2w

Finished this #ChunksterChallenge2021 read. It‘s a pick with reservations. Needs editing, IMO. It took nearly 450 pages before I was fully invested. That‘s way too much time. I get that McMurtry was aiming for a sweeping epic, but the scope was too wide for him to properly wrap his arms around because some of the storylines petered out or felt unnecessary to the whole. Favorite characters: Gus and Clara.
Glad to have finally read this, though!

Kelly326 Congrats on finishing! I still have a little over 200 pages to go. 3w
Amiable @Kelly326 What do you think about it? Do you think you would want to continue to the rest of the series? I'm not sure I will. 3w
Kelly326 I am enjoying the book. I love the characters. I don‘t know that I will read any more of them, but I am glad I read it. 3w

Gaylagal2 I read Lonesome Dove many, many years ago with my Mom. Such a great memory you reminded me of......thank you! We would talk for hours about what we read, and drinking tons of coffee🤓 Lonesome Dove was the first book I read with such a huge amount of pages (I think 845). 4w
Amiable @Gaylagal2 ❤️❤️ I‘m so glad this brought you a beautiful memory of your mom. 4w
