Big Book Summer Challenge 2022

 Once again I'm joining other readers who plan to read some weighty tomes over the summer. The challenge begins at the end of May and continues through to the Labour Day weekend. The only rule is that the book has to be at least 400 pages. You can read as many or as few books as you want. You can even get through them as audiobooks!

You can find out more about this challenge at Sue Jackson's blog, Book By Book.

I collect possible titles for this challenge throughout the year. Sometimes I even read them before the challenge begins. I have been known to add a book or two as the summer progresses. My goal is always to just read as many books from the list as I can.

  1. Welcome back to another Big Book Summer, Cheriee! You do it just the way I do - collecting Big Books all year and then trying to read as many as I can during the summer :) As you know, I read and enjoyed both The Diamond Eye and An Elegant Defense. And I also have Project Hail Mary in my stack! I think that's up next for me. I REALLY want to read The Lincoln Highway and The Warmth of Other Suns - maybe summer 2023!

    Enjoy your Big books! (and I'll take care of the extra link I added).
