Here’s the third reading challenge of the year — read a book over 500 pages long. We’re thinking a paper based book, so for those who read on electronic gizmos, read an appropriately long book, so Under the Dome by King, War and Peace by Tolstoy, or Centennial by Michener. I’m sure you can think of a few more. So give it a go and post your books here!
