Chunkster Challenge Completed!

Hooray!!! Another challenge completed!!! (Sarcasm coming...) If I keep this up, I might actually read some books! LOL! :o)

Here's what I managed to read for this challenge:

1. The Book of God by Walter Warengin, Jr. (633 pages)--10/06/09
2. A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman (480 pages)--5/13/09
3. A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman (480 pages)--5/20/09
4. A Passion Denied by Julie Lessman (480 pages)--5/27/09
5. Stolen Innocence by Elissa Wall (451 pages)--6/13/09
6. The Justice Game by Randy Singer (494 pages)--7/12/09

I had initially only set a goal of three books, and I'm really proud that I doubled my original goal. Long books are just not easy for me; 300-page books are usually my average.

Now....on to finish another challenge.... :o)


  1. Hmmmmm was it really a challenge to read all of Julie's books?? LOL!!!!! Congrats on completing a challenge!

    XOXO~ Renee

  2. Julie's books are so good, they don't seem nearly as long as they actually are! =)

  3. Sorry ~ congrats of exceeding your goal! You did a great job!

    ~ Lori

  4. Yeah, y'all are was no challenge at all to read Julie's books!

  5. Christy!!! I'm SOOO proud of you ... all three of my books??? You go, girl!

    And Renee and Lori ... thanks for taking Christy to task for qualifying my chunksters as challenges, although they truly are, I know. But if y'all think they're a challenge to read, you should try writing one!!


  6. I'm the same in my reading thickness - so I went and looked at my reads thus far and was happy to find that I too have read 6 books that would be "chunksters" (I assume that means 400+ pages).
    -The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (576)
    -Anna Karenina (817)
    -In The Woods (431)
    -Suite Francaise (416)
    -The Time Traveler's Wife (518)
    -The Help (464)

    I loved all of these books except In The Woods. Some took weeks to get through while others took days - just like their shorter counterparts. I've found that it isn't so much about the length but rather how the story grabs me that dictates the duration.

    I'm looking forward to beginning the Outlander series this winter - that might monopolize all of 2010 alone!!!


I love your comments!! They make me happier than cold sweet tea on a hot summer day! :o)
