Chunkster Challenge 2014 Wrap-Up Post

Chunkster Challenge 2014 Wrap-Up Post

Wondering what’s a chunkster? A chunkster is an adult or YA book, non-fiction or fiction, that’s 450 pages or more. 

Rules for this challenge:
  • Audio books and e-books are now allowed.  
  • 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 have to list your books ahead of time.
  • Graphic novels don’t count. 
There were no levels this year, but ebooks and audiobooks were allowed so I tried for 15 chunksters with at least 4 over 750 pages. I only made 13 chunksters, with only 2 over 750 pages.
