Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules are simple:
- Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
- Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girlin your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
- Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
- Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.
The Longest Books We’ve Ever Read
War & Peace – Leo Tolstoy, 1392 pages. I read this because I was in a serious Russian literature phase… Just give yourself some time.
V – Thomas Pynchon, 640 pages. This was one of my favorite assigned reads in college. But do yourself a favor and skip the nose chapter.
Gone With the Wind – Margaret Mitchell, 1037 pages. Everyone needs to read the classics right?
Diplomacy – Henry Kissinger, 916 pages. I was forced into this in college and it was rough.
Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand, 1168 pages. Okay, so… I skimmed it. But I skimmed it heavily and was able to pass a test on it so it counts right?
Voyager – Diana Gabaldon, 820 pages. 820 pages of torture because Diana is a cruel goddess.
Don Quixote – Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra, 1072 pages. I skimmed this one too, but multiple times so I’m counting it.
War Storm – Victoria Aveyard, 640 pages. This may not be as long as some of the others, but it felt like an accomplishment finishing this beast.
