Chunkster Challenge 2007

You may have already seen something around the place for this, but Bookfool is hosting the Chunkster challenge 2007. The challenge runs from January to June 2007 and it's really very flexible. Click on the link above to get all the details.

I was actually resisting joining in on this challenge, not because I don't like Chunksters (I love them) but just that I am doing so appallingly at challenges at the moment. I haven't even read my November challenge books yet, let alone the From the Stacks books that are listed in my sidebar. Actually, I have read one of those, I just haven't written my review for it yet. I do have quite a few books here that would qualify as well.

And so, I find myself irresistably drawn to the light of another reading challenge, and am now declaring that yes I am participating. I think I am going to set myself four books, and I may later cheat and actually have some books that cross challenges, but for now my four books are going to be:

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Boleyn Inheritance by Philippa Gregory
Abundance by Sena Jeter Naslund
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

Hmm...another book challenge with a decidedly strong Historical Fiction flavour...yay!

I might throw in a couple of extra chunksters in there for good measure, but that will do for now.


  1. Hi, again! Welcome to the Chunkster Challenge. I'm looking forward to getting started on this one. I wish you luck!

    I read Pillars of the Earth a year or two ago and really enjoyed it. It read fast for such a large book, which, at the time, surprised me.

    Enjoy your selections!

  2. Marg,

    Yippee, I'm glad you're joining in! The Book Thief has continued to hold its place as my #1 read in 2006. It's fat, but I couldn't put it down so I finished it in an afternoon. That always helps, eh? LOL

    Hope you enjoy your chosen reads!!

  3. This sounds llike a lot of fun - I think I might have a bash at it too! :)
