I Like Big Books?

By Tuesday, February 28, 2017 0 Permalink

One of my many reading resolutions this year is to read “bigger” books. For example books that are more than 400 pages. Well, my friends I may have bit off more than I can chew. I decided to tackle Brandon Sanderson’s “The Way of Kings” book 1 in the Stormlight Archive. This book is massive! At a  little over a 1,000 pages I can safely say this is a big book.  And that is also why I chose to listen to the audiobook instead of lugging around this behemoth of a book in my purse. This is the longest audiobook I have ever listened to at 45 hours!

 

I think the longest audiobook before this that I listened to was 20 hours. Thankfully my local library had it available on loan. However, I am in a bit of a time crunch to finish before my 2 week loan period ends. I mean there is only so much I can hear in a day before I feel like my ears are about to fall off! Luckily I’am enjoying the book so that is really helpful. Because at this point in time I’m 29 hours in. Truly a herculean task for any reader.

 

I may have shot myself in the foot because this is book 1 in a 10 part series…10! The second book “Words of Radiance” is out now and it’s 1,087 pages. So it looks like I’m in deep with this series and it’s gigantic books. Thanks a lot Brandon Sanderson!
