2012 Big Book Summer Challenge Wrap Up

I'm a little bit late in getting this post up but I just started a new job and I've been tired in the evenings. So, how many books over 400 pages did I get read this summer? Let's list them out:

Not too bad. There were a couple of the big books such as The Book Thief that I really wanted to get to this summer but the feeling wasn't right at that time when I picked them up. Oh well, guess they'll be winter reads. I really enjoyed participating in this challenge and hope to do it again next summer.


  1. Wow, Melissa, you rocked this challenge!! 9 Big Books in one summer - amazing! My son just finished A Feast for Crows and can't wait to get book #5!

    And, yes, I think 399 pages counts ;)

    Thanks for participating in the challenge - I'm glad you enjoyed it!

    P.S. Love the new look of the blog!

    1. Thanks for the compliments, Sue. I can't wait for Book 5 either but I'm determined to have a trade paperback so that it'll match all my other books and, alas, the publication date for the paperback keeps getting pushed back.

  2. 9 chunky books is amazing. Good job! I posted my list of three books today. My downfall was not reading a single book in August.
