Book Blogger Hop, August 19 – 22, 2011

Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books. It is a great way of discovering new blogs and meeting fellow book bloggers, talking about books and authors, and sharing our love for literature.

 Book Blogger Hop

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.)

MY ANSWER:

It depends on the definition. I’m sure the longest book published in a single volume I read would be Outlander by Diana Gabaldon with over 800 pages (although, I read it in translation broken into two volumes with over 900 pages). However, most people agree The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien is one book even though it was originally and most often published in three volumes, so this would be the longest book I have ever read – my edition has 1496 pages without the index.

  5. 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 http://www.howardsherman.net and follow along the logic with me!

  6. I think that's part of why I've put off reading LoTR - it's so long and I'm so slow that I know it would take forever to read. It's on my list though, and I own the gigantic 3-in-1 volume (which should be fun to read, I'll probably break my wrists just holding it up lol)

  9. Lots of people are saying LOTR! I've never read it, I know I should have but I've just never got around to it - although I did love The Hobbit :-) I really want to read Outlander too, everyone says it's so great!
