Challenging Myself: Three Mammoth Books

I am challenging myself to read three books by 15th October. They have been on my TBR for a very long........... time and I feel that if I don't read them now, I'll never be able to read them. Mammoth books they are so I want to finish them before I get busy with Diwali cleaning and preparation.

Here are the books:












As I finish each text, I'll treat myself to a mystery.

Have you read any of the three? How did you find it/ them?

  1. I have read THE JUNGLE by Sinclair but not that one.

    1. Thanks Patti for having a look. I too have read the Jungle but my favourite amongst the Sinclairs read is King Coal. Hope this one, which is an anthology, turns out to be good too.

  2. Oh, I hope you'll enjoy these, Neeru. They may be mammoth, but that doesn't mean you can't get caught up in the stories.

    1. Thanks Prashant. Mammoth books really take a lot of time and that's why I kept putting these off but what's a challenge if it is not tough.:)

  4. How ambitious, Neer. I am pretty sure I read Les Miserables when I was very young, but nothing else by Hugo. I recently read a book over 1000 pages (Under the Dome by Stephen King). Not in the same league as these books, and I was surprised I enjoyed it so much. Usually I stay away from overly long books, but I have a good number on my shelves.

    I look forward to your posts on these books.

    1. Thanks Tracy. I also think I have taken more than I can chew but well..

      Hats off to you for reading a chunkster by Stephen King. It was, in fact, his mammoth IT that put me off him :)
