2012 Chunkster Reading Challenge. This challenge has always been one of my favorites because I love reading LONG books.
This year there is also a Chunky Book Club. Selections haven't been made yet--a poll is up now--so I haven't decided if I'll be reading these particular books or not with the group, but it could happen.
