Book Blogger Hop (6)

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”

The longest book I read was "The Far Pavillions" by M.M. Kaye. It's 960 pages of saga about an English boy born in colonial India and raised by native Indians, who ends up joining the British Army and falling in love with his childhood sweetheart, who is about to marry some prince . . . dun dun DUN! I actually read it when I was 13 or 14. I can't decide if it's awesome or sad that I read longer books in middle school than I do now. Now, I usually don't read books over 450 pages because I just don't have the patience. And technically, I didn't finish it, since I stopped about 50 pages from the end. I have no idea WHY I did that! You'd think after reading the fist 900 pages, I could make it through the last 50, but apparently not.


  1. My longest read was for during the high school years. Interesting. I'm a new follower.

  2. Too funny....this sounds like quite an epic!

  3. Most people would guess I’d write myself in the role of a hero in a fictional adventure of some kind. But that would be only partially correct. As is my norm, I throw a curve ball in my answer that makes perfect sense one you follow my logic. Follow me back to my blog at and follow along the logic with me!

  4. But the last 50 pages are worth reading, believe me :)
    I always bought the thickest books, because they were pretty much the same price as the thin ones. So I got more for the same price.

  5. Are you ever going to finish those last 50 pages just so you can say you did.

  6. Hey, Thanks for visiting my blog today. that book actually looks interesting.

    I also do not start books because they are long, but I find it mostly happens with epic fantasy series. I don't want to start to read the wheel of time series for example because of the time commitment such an endeavor would entail.
