Booking Through Thursday 3

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme which asks a bookish question which you have to answer.

This weeks question is:

What’s the largest, thickest, heaviest book you ever read? Was it because you had to? For pleasure? For school?

I am pretty sure that I have read loads of big books but the only ones that come to mind right now are:

For school - my Business Studies text book back in college. It was a hardback monster that weighed a ton and it was not easy lugging that thing around three times a week especially on the bus.

Pleasure reading - The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop is pretty big, 1216 pages. But it was sooooo good that it only took me a couple of days to finish it.

That's all for now.


  1. You should give it another shot. I does take a bit to get into it because of all the history and build up once you get there you will love the characters and the story lines.

  2. WOW! 1216 pages?! That's crazy! Congrats on finishing it so quickly!

  3. That's quite an accomplishment - 1216 pages! I'm such a slow reader, it would probably take me a couple of years to finish it!

  4. I have the first book in this trilogy...I have yet to read it though..but I do want to. Hopefully soon. Here is my answer to this week's Booking Through Thursday.
