2012 Challenges: Chunkster Challenge

I am signing up for the 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.

Mor-book-ly Obese
