Q: What is the longest book you've read? What are your favorite 600+ page reads?

The longest book I've read is probably the seventh Harry Potter.  I'm not sure, though.  The books I read aren't that big, averaging between two-hundred and four-hundred, but HP was long-ish, I guess.

That one is also my favorite, obviously!!!

EDIT:  I've recently learned that I am a liar.  See, I didn't actually check out the lengths of the books.  Turns out Little Woman (I read it kindle version, so I do have an excuse) is 1000+ pages, the fifth HP is longer than the seventh, and some of the Twilight's are really long too.  My favorite(s) still stay the same, though.  Harry Potter rules!!!!!

What about you?  Leave links!

HP certainly is a popular choice this week! I loved all of them so much; yet somehow? They slipped my mind when I was making my list! I think I forget how long they were.


Come see my TGIF / Follow Friday for this week!

Hmmm, I definitely haven't read many books that qualify. Haha!

The longest books I've ever read were Eragon & Eldest by Christopher Paolini. Which were amazing! I still haven't gotten to the next two books, due to those very 600+ pages. (Their a little daunting to say the least!)

Hopping through. It's hard to believe how long the HP books are. They feel so short.

Love Harry Potter. You don't even think about how long the books are.

Here's my Follow Friday. Stop by if you get a chance.

Thanks for following my blog, Shelby! Yeah, I agree Harry Potter all the way.

Kristan said...

Hahaha I was the same way. After reading other people's FF posts I realized I read a lot more 600+ page books than I thought. But Harry Potter is still number one for me =)

Ya I noticed that some of my other books are long too like the Twilight series and I've read Little Women I didn't even think about that one.

Lol - that was awesome. I totally did a double-take on "I'm a liar" wondering if you were coughing up some deep hidden secret for all of us!! Hilarious.

You're right... there's lots of books that are long that I didn't realize, either. I am wishing I'd added some more to my list, but I was already getting lengthy!!! (as usual?!)

Thx for hopping by my FF!! -Burgandy Ice

Harry Potter is a great answer! It is difficult to keep track of long books on e-readers. Thanks for visiting!

If you consider the fact that the version of The Lord of The Rings I read was the one that’s one book with the 3 parts inside (1202 pages in the brazilian version), that would be the longest book I’ve ever read. But if you consider series to favorite 600+ page reads, hands down, Harry Potter. Not so much for the story, but for the feeling it brings me every time I think about it.

I'm a new follower, btw!
