Friday Book Blogger Hop!

19 Aug

It’s Friday!  


So what to do to start the weekend off with a bang?  

Go to the Friday Book Blogger Hop, of course.

A Big Thank You to Jennifer of Crazy for Books for hosting this weekly meme.

This week’s question is:

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)

I think the longest book I have ever read is Bleak House by Charles Dickens.  At 900+ pages, it is filled with lots of descriptive detail and, of course, those strange and wonderful Dickens characters.  Just got to love the names!  Bleak House is a great book.  It features a court case that is the longest running civil suit in British legal history — fitting for such a long book.  If you have never read Bleak House, check it out.  The pages really do fly by.

    Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!

    I have a copy of Bleak House in my TBR shelves, but I don’t think my own copy is as long as that (or maybe it is, and I just didn’t notice) 🙂

    I have not heard of Bleak House and I have several of his books. I will have to find and read this one. Thanks!

    I haven’t heard of Bleak House, and while I didn’t participate in the hop I would say the longest book I ever read was the unabridged version of Stephen King’s The Stand.

      That was a frequent answer on the hop. Have a great week.
