Follow Me Friday # 11


   
   So, Follow my Blog Friday is a meme hosted by Parajunkee and AlisonCanRead. It's where you answer the weekly question and then link yourself and you go and check out other blogs of your interest.


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

A:  So, the longest book I've ever read (that I can think of at the moment) is Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.  It clocks in at  about 1,000 and some + pages!  It's a pretty good read though if you can look past the blatant romanticism and racism of pre and post-Civil war South...ahem.  Anyways, some of my fave 600+ reads are Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and all of the Lord of the Rings books! :)

  3. Can't go wrong with HP! Those were my answers too =)

    I loved the movie Gone with the Wind but never got around to reading the book (which I know is blasphemous!) I'm hoping to get to it one day, but I'm such a slow reader I feel like it would take me 2 months to finish it!

  4. I loved Gone With the Wind. Mainly because I loved Rhett Butler. Yes there's some racism and all that but the book is a product of it's time.

  5. Hopping through. I was surprised at how much I liked Gone with the Wind. Not as big a fan of the movie though.

  6. 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.

    I'm a new follower, btw!
