2015 Chunkster Challenge

January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015

Welcome to the 2015 Chunkster Challenge! I’m your host, Vasilly.

Wondering what’s a chunkster? A chunkster is an adult or YA book, non-fiction or fiction, that’s 450 pages or more.

Here’s the rules for this year’s challenge:
  • Audio books and e-books are allowed. You want to listen to a chunkster on audio? Be my guest.
  • Essay, short story, and poetry collections are allowed but they have to be read in their entirety to count.
  •  Books may crossover with other challenges.
  • Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog. Feel free to leave your progress on the monthly link-up posts. 
  •  You don’t have to list your books ahead of time. 
  •  Graphic novels don’t count. Reading a chunkster graphic novel isn't the same as reading a non-graphic chunkster.
Just like last year, there won’t be any levels with this challenge. How you challenge yourself is up to you. Read 1 book for this challenge or 20. It’s all up to you.

I understand that chunksters can be a bit intimidating. My goal is to encourage as many people as possible to give chunksters a try. We all love short books because we can get through them in a sitting or a few days. It’s different with chunksters. With chunksters, you have to slow down and take your time. The Chunkster Challenge is all about having fun and reading good books. 

All I ask is that participants either write a post or leave a comment in the comments section letting the world know that you’re participating. You can also link directly to your post about this challenge below in Mr. Linky.]
