Well, I admit it: I'm proud of myself. Not only did I get back to blogging again, but I actually finished the one book challenge I signed up for. The Chunkster Challenge (see my Challenged page) seemed like something I could handle, and as it turned out, I totally could. I had signed up for the: Do These Books Make My Butt Look Big? level and was surprised by how many pages some of my choices actually had.
Looking back at what I read, I realized that some of these books were ones I picked up because of my book groups. Catherine the Great was a re-read (and I liked it just as much the second time through) for a book group, and so was Reamde. Out of all of the books, I think I enjoyed the ones by Stephen King and Joe Hill the most: NOS4A2 and Doctor Sleep. And out of all of the big books, those are the two, along with Lonesome Dove, that I plan on re-reading in the future.
Now that I've finished the year, I think I'll probably take a pass on this challenge in 2014 (although if it turns out that I'm picking up big books, I might sign up after all. I see there are no levels in 2014, which might make it easier for me). But, it was a great challenge -- I did feel challenged to find some books, and it made me expand some of my reading boundaries. Many thanks to the challenge hosts!
