- 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.
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:
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 th. 2015at 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.
I’ll be right here to cheer you on. Happy reading.
