2010 Chunkster Reading Challenge

2010 Chunkster Challenge

February 1, 2010 - January 31, 2011
Definition of a Chunkster:
~ A chunkster is 450 pages or more of ADULT literature (fiction or nonfiction) ... A chunkster should be a challenge.
~ If you read large type books your book will need to be 525 pages or more ... The average large type book is 10-15% longer or more so I think that was a fair estimate.
The Rules:
~No Audio books in the chunkster. It just doesn't seem right. Words on paper for this one folks.
~No e-Books allowed - we are reading traditional, fat books for this challenge.
~Short Stories and Essay collections will not be counted.
~Books may crossover with other challenges
~Anyone may join. If you don't have a blog, just leave me a comment on this post with your progress (and to let me know you are playing)
~You don't need to list your books ahead of time.
~Once you pick a level, that's it...you're committed to that level!You must pick a level of participation (thanks again to Dana for the humor in these categories!):
The Chubby Chunkster - this option is for the reader who has a couple of large tomes on their TBR list, but really doesn't want to commit to much more than that. 3 books is all you need to finish this challenge.
Do These Books Make my Butt Look Big? - this option is for the slightly heavier reader who wants to commit to 4 Chunksters over the next twelve months.
Mor-book-ly Obese - This is for the truly out of control chunkster. For this level of challenge you must commit to 6 or more chunksters OR three tomes of 750 pages or more. You know you want to.....go on and give in to your cravings.
