Top Ten Tuesday -Longest Books I’ve Read

Today’s Topic: Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Hosted by: That Artsy Reader Girl

I’ll have to confess, this week’s topic gave me pause. I wasn’t sure I would be able to participate. I don’t generally read that many long books. With so many on my TBR pile and so little time, I always figure why read one long one when I can read two or three shorter ones in the same length of time? Also, I have a very hard time DNF-ing books I am not enjoying. So I hesitate to invest my time in a longer book, knowing that if I don’t like it I will still feel obligated to trudge my way through the remaining pages in misery. Still, I have managed to read my way through some longer books in my long years of being an avid reader.

Storm and Silence -765 pages

The Oath -656 pages

Black -560 pages

Push Not the River -556 pages

North and South -521 pages

A Hope Undaunted -512 pages

Tiffany Girl -512 pages

The Masterpiece -512 pages

Jane Eyre -507 pages

A Beauty So Rare -471 pages

What are some the longest books you have read? Do you prefer shorter or longer novels?

  1. We think a bit differently regarding this issue. In my case, if I am reading a very interesting book, I do not want it to end, even if I spend all of my time devouring it. The longest texts I have read are probably the Harry Potter novels. I do not know the exact number of pages they have, but they are very thick paperbacks.
