Chunksters Challenge


There are a few versions of the Chunkster Challenge out there. And I know you're going to be totally shocked when I say that I'm doing this my own way. I know, just weird, right?

Not only are there a few different challenges, there are also a couple of different definitions of a Chunkster. I'm taking my definition from Chunkster Reading Challenge.

  • A chunkster is 450 pages or more of adult literature (fiction or nonfiction). Textbooks/anthologies do not count.
  • If you read large type books, a chunkster is characterized as having 525 pages or more.

Now...in my world, adult literature also includes Young Adult fiction. So I'm not going to go out and restrict myself on this one. It's a blurred line, really.

Most of these challenges out there run January 1st to December 31st and have different levels of challenge for you to meet. I'm not doing that either. Because I'm special. The EPJ Chunkster Challenge is bigger than that. (Get it?)

My challenge is to read 50 chunksters in 10 years -- just like my goal read on my 50 x 50 Bucket List Challenge.

As I read the qualifying big boys, I'll be adding them in here by title, author and number of pages. I'll also list the date that I finish them and track my progress with the handy-dandy progress bar below.

I'm starting this challenge on June 1, 2014 with an end date of May 31, 2024. Let the reading begin!
