    Time for a Long Novel

    - 0 Comment(s)

    We’ve all heard the phrase “short and sweet,” but sometimes the best novels are those that you can lose yourself in for days or weeks at a time. As the weather turns colder and I spend more time indoors, curling up with a good, long book is just the thing to keep me happy. If you have time to dive into a long novel, there are many great ones to choose from, from the classics to something more contemporary. If it's an older book still in print or something newer that has made it to publication and it's a thick book, it's a good sign that there's something there to make it worth your time!

    The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

    War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

    The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

    (originally planned as a single volume, but published in three at the insistence of the publisher)

    A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth

    Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
