DAY 3. – The longest book you’ve read.

Unfortunately it seems that my sleeping pattern still wasn’t quite back to normal, as a brief lay down at around 9pm yesterday resulted in me not waking up until gone 10am this morning hence the no post last night.

Anyways moving on to the next topic of the 30 day challenge, the longest book I have read.

Which I was fairly sure was going to come from one of two series, Wheel of Time or The Malazan Book of the Fallen and I am pretty sure I am right. It is possible that I have read others that are off a similar length or perhaps even longer but taking a good look around my book collection these are the ones that stand out.

After a little Googling and a trip to Wikipedia it turns out that 4th book in the Wheel of Time “The Shadow Rising”  takes the biscuit at a massive 1001 pages and 393, 823 words, almost 3000 words more than “Toll the Hounds” from Steven Erikson.

It also has some of my favorite parts of the story, the history of the Aiel, Matt gets his Medallion and Spear, and Perrin first steps up to become a leader in his own right.

I can’t really talk about it much more for fear of spoiling it for anyone out there who has not yet read the Wheel of Time so I guess that is the end of tonight’s blog, with the exception of telling that if you haven’t read it is worth doing so, all 4,056,130 words and 11,916 pages of it.
