    I’ll answer here rather than my blog because the short answer is the unabridged version of Les Miserables — 1400+ pages. But since I am not linking to a BTT answer on my blog I’ll link back to my review of that book if anyone is interested:

  17. Lisa Says:

    I read Anna Karenina this summer. It was super long, and a ‘big’ challenge for me since I was always so intimidated by thi book. It turned out to be awesome & not as difficult to read as I thought it might be!

  25. Big books – big as in big and big as in popular

    My answer is here

  26. abby Says:

    hello, this is my second booking!!! my first thought was to feature children’s books since they can become bigger and bigger than other fiction stuff. But thought otherwise. Good day everyone!

  27. Marce Says:

    Hello all, I am new. Time Travelers Wife and Firefly Lane are my choices.

  28. Kinga Says:

    I tend to read big ones nowadays, and I am enjoying them. Here is my response.

  29. mervih Says:

    It’s always been hard for me to assess a book’s popularity outside my circle of friends, so I concentrated on the page count:

    Thanks for looking, and Happy Day. :)

    I think it was whatever the largest of the Harry Potter books are and that was before I blogged so I have no link! However I am reading them again for the Harry Potter challenge so some day there will be links :)

    I’ve recently read Moby Dick for the first time, and last for a while at least. It was hard to get through, but I felt a huge sense of accomplishment when I was finished.
    I’m currently working on Anna Karenina but it isn’t moving nearly as fast sense school has started again and I have other books I have to read right now too.

  43. Sherrie Says:

    Mine is posted at my place, Just Books. Drop by sometime! My post is here:
