1. Probably the unabridged version of The Stand

I canít recall lugging around anything thicker than that, but it is possible I read something longer in college?

3. Longest book I ever read was James Michener's ALASKA but then most of his books run on

the long side.

4. Not positive, but the longest book I've read recently is Shogun.

Really good book!!

Although, I wasn't super happy with how the author chose to end it. It was a bit unsatisfying.

5. Hmmmm. I've read a lot of long books.

War and Peace, Crime and Punishment, Shogun, I Know This Much Is True -- among others. Not sure which was longest, but it has to be one of those.
