Chunkster Reading Challenge 2021

Run by Impressions In Ink (Reviews by Annette)


Duration: January 1 to December 31, 2021
Amount: The number of books read is up to you. The amount of pages in the book is the important guideline. The books must have 450 pages or greater to be a chunkster.

Sign-up by leaving a comment on their blog post, linked above.

Guidelines:
1. The books read must be 450 pages or more to be considered chunkster books.
2. The books can be a hard copy, e-books, or an audio book. As long as each of these formats equal to 450 pages or greater (if it were a hard copy book).
3. If you don’t have a blog that’s okay.
4. If you’d like to create a starting and or final post about this challenge on your blog or other social media account: link back to their original post, and leave your links in the comment section of their post.
5. They don’t want to host a complicated reading challenge and they’d like to make this challenge easy.

COMPLETE but will continue adding bigass books I read to this list. 😛
