I'll bet the first thing that springs to my mind for this word is not your first choice. Although I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.
Long primarily has a spatial sense but I'm thinking of a sense of time. Yes a long book. A book that takes a long time to read, for it has many pages. Some people say that they don't like to read a long book, but if I really like a book, I want it to go on forever. So no book is ever too long for me. It's too long if I don't like it, however long or short it may be.
The first long book that I read was Gone with the Wind and I was about 14. A group of girls in my class at high school had one copy and we passed it from hand to hand. Over 1000 pages. My turn came on a Friday afternoon and by Monday I could pass it on to the next in line. What a marathon read that was.
I call these long books chest crushers for I am fond of reading in bed. So here are some chest crushers from my book collection.
A Suitable Boy is only 14th on the list of longest novels published? Check it out here.
Yes indeed, chest crushers
Who knew books were so hard to photograph? All kinds of reflections! With ten minutes of available time to spare, I hastily photographed a selection and these are the best.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND EVERYONE
