It's been a relatively slow book blogging week for me. I've been trying to get lost in a couple of good books but it hasn't been working. I read a couple that were of moderate interest but nothing more. So it's fun to join in the hop since I've not been reviewing. This week's question, sponsored weekly by Crazy for Books provides another short answer for me. What is the LONGEST book you've ever read, excluding religious or spiritual texts?
Because I do not have the page count in front of me for the editions I read, I'm not sure which one of these wins, but since each book weighs in at over 1,000 pages, they're both contenders: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo (according to iPage, a current one volume trade paperback is 1,231 pages)) and my one volume edition of The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien (which according to iPage is 1,178 pages). Either way, it's close.
What about you? What's the longest work you've ever read?
