Booking Through Thursday



What’s the largest, thickest, heaviest book you ever read? Was it because you had to? For pleasure? For school?

Without a doubt, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book #5) at over 850 pages - and I read it totally for pleasure!

  3. I never read any of the HP books, and have no intention to ever read them.

  4. That was a hefty one--especially considering it was aimed at kids.

  5. I hadn't realized Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was quite that hefty! I read it too and loved it as well as all the others in the series. The Harry Potter books were instrumental in awakening the love of reading for one of my children.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I am a new follower of yours.

  6. A lot of bloggers have been mentioning HP books. It doesn't surprise me though with how large they get page wise and how great they are.

  9. That was one of the reasons I wished they had made two movies. That was one I read to my daughter. It took forever.

  10. I'm afraid that when I tried to read that one it just wasn't inspiring enough to keep me going for the whole book
