Birgit from The Book Garden is hosting the Tea and Books Reading Challenge.
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.
- C. S. Lewis
Birgit's challenge is inspired by the above quote and she is challenging participants to read books with more than 700 pages. Novels only, no large print, short story collections/anthologies, audio books, or re-reads.
There are 4 levels to choose from:
Chamomile Lover - read 2 700+ page books
Berry Tea Devotee - read 4 700+ page books
Earl Grey Aficionado - read 6 700+ page books
Sencha Connoisseur - read 8 or more 700+ page books
I'm going to attempt Chamomile Lover (2 books), since I don't usually read hefty books (but maybe here's my chance to do so! ;)
As titles are read, they will be dated, a link to a review posted, and (finally, since I love to do it!) crossed out.
1. The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu (1174 pages)
2. An Irish History of Civilization (volume 1) by Donald Harman Akenson (828 pages)
