Today's BTT question is about large, heavy books:
What's the largest, thickest, heaviest book you've ever read? Was it because you had to? For pleasure? For school?
I have to admit that I tend to shy away from large, heavy books. But to answer the question, the biggest book I've read was a paperback version of LONESOME DOVE by Larry McMurtry at 943 pages. I might also add that I read that book in a week because the mini-series was coming to TV and I wanted to read it before it started. I read at every waking moment. I was doing nails for a living back in 1990 and I kept my book in my drawer and any minute I could steal a few pages, I did. The book remains one of my all-time favorites. And the mini-series was equally as wonderful! Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall - you can't go wrong with that!!
