Feature Follow Friday

Feature & Follow Friday is a meme brought to you by Alison Can Read
and Parajunkee's View.

This weeks question is:

What is the longest book you’ve read?
What are your favorite 600+ page reads?

The four books listed below are the one's that I've read that are 600 + pages
long. There are others like Greg Iles "Turning Angel," and Robert Ludlum's "The Bourne Ultimatum." Then again, I believe most of the Bourne books border on 600 pages in length.

I would probably say that the Lord of the Rings and The Stand are tied for my all time favorite books read, with a close second to Atlas Shrugged believe it or not.

766 pages long
 1168 pages
1168 pages

1156 pages


I would love to see your responses to this question. I know there are
tons of books out there that I haven't yet read that are quite long.

Have a great Friday everyone!

  1. Something about LOTR has never appealed to me! I really want to give it a try though.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. I actually broke it up piece meal that way it wasn't so tedious to read.

      Thanks for hopping by Amanda!

    1. I think the Stand should be considered one of the best books ever written, and that, my friend says a lot!

    1. Gina, it's wonderful to have you as a new follower. LOTR is definitely one of those books that you need alot of patience and of course, time.

      Happy Friday!

    2. Hi Heather, and thanks for hopping by. Stephen King is one of those writers that no matter what he writes, someone is going to run out and buy it.

      Happy Friday to you!

  13. I tried LOTR and The Hobbit, but I was probably too young for it at the time and just couldn't get into it. I should try it again one of these days.

  14. I tried to read LOTR, but stopped midway because of the lack of time and I simply couldn't get into it. I should try it again someday though, hopefully in the near future.

  19. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've read The Passage and The Lord of the Rings from your list. Loved them both. I would say that the follow-up to The Passage is one of my anticipated reads this year. And there is supposedly a film that is going to be made based on the book so I can't wait for that.

    Good choices!

  20. I read Atlas Shrugged and it took me forever. I did not enjoy it because it felt like nothing happend until that last 200 pages. But- I know lots of people loved it. I agree with you about The Stand. :) I read Pillars of the Earth- which is over 1000 pages and it is up there with my favorite books.

    I am a new follower here. I read about you on AwesomeSauce.

  21. If you consider the fact that the version of The Lord of The Rings I read was the one that’s one book with the 3 parts inside (1202 pages in the brazilian version), that would be the longest book I’ve ever read. But if you consider series to favorite 600+ page reads, hands down, Harry Potter. Not so much for the story, but for the feeling it brings me every time I think about it.
