Harry Potter and the Chunkster Challenge

I finally went and saw the movie last night. I had hoped to read the book first but that didn't happen so it was a little confusing trying to figure out where they were and remember who is who and all of that. That confusion prevented me from feeling like I was really lost in an escape so my movie experience ended up being just OK rather than wondeful. It reaffirmed for me that before the second half comes out this summer, I have got to get the book read. It's a nice chunky book...so I've got it in mind for the Chunkster challenge.


The Chunkster Challenge is being hosted at a dedicated blog by Caribou's Mom. I'm committing to "The Chubby Chunkster" that requires reading four chunksters between February 1, 2011 and January 31, 2012. I have a few books floating around already here at home that would qualify and that I would like to read (someday), Harry Potter 6 and 7, Great Expectations, Colony, Winter Solstice, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, Pillars of the Earth, The Cider House Rules, Mexico, A History of God (if you include the index!), The World is Flat, War and Peace.... oh yeah, I think I have plenty of material!

I felt the same way about the Harry Potter movie - it was slow at times. Good luck with the chunkster challenge.

If I may give you a nudge into one book or another, I can recommend the Harry Potter books (of course), but also COLONY and WINTER SOLSTICE. Especially COLONY. I need to reread that one. :-)

Good luck!
