Book Blogger Hop #7 (8/19/11)

"Book Blogger Hop" is a weekly social book meme hosted by

This Week's Question:

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)

The longest book I've ever read was The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens, and it happens to be my FAVORITE book! That doesn't mean I favor super long, 900-page books. Not at all. But, if the book makes me laugh so hard I cry every time I read it, no matter how many times I reread certain passages, then it's likely going to become my favorite book.

Unfortunately, it has no fantasy elements in it, so it doesn't fit in this book blog, genre-wise, but Dickens is an amazing author with the richest, most interesting characters ever created. I can only HOPE more authors, in every genre, read Dickens with a passion and get influenced by his characters.

That's mine for this week. What's yours?
