Gettin’ Chunky!


I do realize the humor of having this post follow my New Me Challenge update post. But while I am getting rid of some of the chunk, I am rising to the challenge of chunk in a different area. I have come up with a slightly crazy reading goal for 2009. The 999 Challenge is to read 9 books in 9 areas in 2009. Here is where I have my list and my reviews/progress tracking.

When I found the Feelin’ Chunky challenge I realized a few on the 999 list fit the description so I can do that too!

And you have to admit, the graphics are cool!


I’m going with this option:

*Do These Books Make my Butt Look Big? – this option is for the slightly heavier reader who wants to commit to 3-5 Chunksters over the next ten months.

What’s on my list that qualifies?

Plutarch’s Lives Vol 1 (751 pages of small print)

The Histories by Herodotus (502 pages)

The Oddysey (at 462 pages) [I read The Iliad back on 1/1-2, a definite chunker at 588 pages ]

Thomas Aquinas Selected Writings (827 pages, very small type)

Plus a few Russian novels I hope to get to.

Happy Reading!

    Oh my heavens, I love the marketing genius behind this reading challenge! I’ve got to explore it, even though I’m not sure I can commit to it.

    Your selections look like those of a good classical educator’s.

    Happy reading (and memorizing),
