I’ve missed the starting date for TomeTopple a couple of times now, but this round, I actually found out in advance, yay!
If you don’t know what Tome Topple is, here’s Sam’s (ThoughtsOnTomes) video explaining it. Basically, it’s a read a thon to tackle books that are 500 pages or more, and it’s going on for two weeks starting this Friday at midnight in your timezone.
I have a lot of books that would work for this, but I decided to limit my selection to only those I’ve put off reading because they intimidate me so much. I doubt I’ll make it through more than one of these (honestly, I probably won’t even actually finish one), but that’s ok! My goal is to get through as much of at least one of them as possible during the read a thon. I’m also not picking any book to start with until the read a thon begins because I am horrible when it comes to sticking to a TBR. So, these are the books I’ve chosen, and I’ll read whichever I’m in the mood for when TomeTopple begins.
Not pictured is Lord of the Rings. Yes, it’s true, I haven’t read LOTR 😦 I just found out it does count for this (I wasn’t sure because it is, technically, one book, but it’s often considered a trilogy), so I’m also considering reading it.
