30.4 – Schatzie’s task: The Chunkster

Ten years ago, I started listening to audiobooks. I would pick out the longest ones at my library because I loved it when a book took a week or more to get through. The Outlander series, Gone with the Wind, and some of Philippa Gregory’s books were among my favorites. For this task, pick one option below.

Required: State which option you chose when posting.

Option 1: The ONE BOOK OPTION - read ONE book with a MPG of Historical Fiction and is at least 750 pages long.

Option 2: The TWO BOOK OPTION - read two books, both with a MPG of Historical Fiction, and with a combined page length that equals at least 750 pages.

The genre Historical Fiction may be stand alone or embedded for either option.

Ohhh...I encourage you Trish. I loved the book. It was different than the movie, but I couldn't help but to picture Clark Gable as Rhett. He was cast perfectly.
