Big Book Summer is Here!

Back at the end of March, Sue from Book by Book commented to let me know about her Big Book Summer Challenge, and I've been looking forward to it ever since. It started on Saturday, the beginning of Memorial Day weekend, and runs through Labor Day. The goal is to read at least one book that is at least 400 pages long. 

My original plan was to read two big books, but it actually looks like, if all goes well, I may end up reading three. 

I have just started the audiobook of Fox's Earth by Anne Rivers Siddons, which is 480 pages in print. With a friend, I'm reading Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner, which is 569 pages. Later in the summer, hopefully on our beach trip, I also plan to read The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher, which is 592 pages. I also have Centennial by James Michener, but I'm not quite ready for another long book about the American West after reading Lonesome Dove this Spring so that one is on the back burner for now, especially since it's over 1000 pages. 

Are you reading any big books this summer?
