The Longest Books I've Ever Read - A Top Ten Tuesday list

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl




First, to the former hosts of TTT at The Broke and the Bookish thanks for all the wonderful lists and time dedicated to this meme. Second, thanks to the new host Jana, for keeping it going.

Topic for October 9, 2018:  Longest Books I’ve ever read

Oh, I’ve so got this.

10. Don Quixote (my version 940 pages)
9. An American Tragedy (972 pages)
8. Gone With the Wind (1037 pages)
7. The Stand (1153 pages)
6. Atlas Shrugged (1168 pages)
5. Les Miserables (1466 pages)
4. The Count of Monte Cristo (1472 pages)
3. War and Peace (1615 pages)

Which Guiness recognizes as the World's Longest Novel (by character count with over 9.6 million characters)

The combined pages of my TTT is over 16,000 pages. Do I win? I think I won.

  1. I think the longest books I've read are 1.) War and Peace 2.) Gone With the Wind 3.) The Brothers Karamazov 4.) Nicholas Nicholby 5.) The Count of Monte Cristo 6.)Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

    Also, I plan for Middlemarch to be the next book I read. I will probably start it sometime this month. I'm looking forward to it and to what you think of it.

    1. Middlemarch starts slow while the characters are developed, and it takes quite a while...but suddenly it gets very compelling. I don't know how satisfying the ending will be yet, but it's hard to put down now at least. I should finish this weekend.
