Each week, the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Crazy for Books asks a different book-related question for book bloggers to answer. This week, the question is
What is the LONGEST book you've ever read? (Not including spiritual works)
Since I write an audiobook blog, I've changed the question slightly to
What is the LONGEST book you've listened to?
I'm not going to include The Count of Monte Cristo, since I had read part of it on my smartphone and listened to other chapters. The longest book I've listened to only is A Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. The audiobook is great; it's well-performed, it changes up narrators with changes in points of view, and has an exciting, easy to follow plot. Even so, I found myself having to push through parts and counting down the hours to the end. Listening to a very long book can become difficult, but it's a nice way to get a start on a large, imposing book on your to-read list.
What's your experience with long books? Do you prefer to read, listen or a bit of both?
