#BookQuestion #EST @ljuliel

Shortest book I‘ve read? I‘ve read many comic books which average 22 pages, but I‘ll go with Detective #477, which turned out to be a reprint of a book I already had with only 5 pages of new material!

Longest book I‘ve read? Right now it‘s Oathbringer at 1,306 pages, but I‘m currently reading the uncut version of The Stand at 1,439 pages!

DaveGreen7777 Oldest book I own? I‘ve kept books I loved from my childhood as momentos, including a hardcover edition of what was my favorite Hardy Boys novel, “The Disappearing Floor”, which was published in 1940!

Newest book I own? I bought L.L. McNeil‘s newest novel, “Crimson Eyes”, which just came out August 30th of this year!

1. I don't know about ever, but the shortest book I've read so far in 2019 was “The Spectator Bird“ (226 pgs).
2. Longest book ever was “War and Peace“ (1,802 pgs). Every year I read a book that is 1,000 pages or more.
3. I do genealogy research, so I have books in my house from the 1800s (town histories and the like)
4. “What We Will Become: A Mother, a Son, and a Journey of Transformation“ -- published on 11/12/19

#bookquestion #EST @ljuliel

ljuliel You‘re able to crank out those books pretty quickly, so a book of 200+ pages was probably a breeze. 😊. Now.....War and Peace....I‘ve heard is a REALLY good book. That is one.big.book. 2mo
Amiable @ljuliel “W&P“ was a lot more readable and enjoyable than I expected! I took my time with it -- it took about 3 or 4 months to finish. Had to download that on my e-reader, though -- didn't want to carry that puppy around on the train to work! 😬 2mo
ljuliel I can imagine. You‘d build up some powerful arm muscles 💪🏼 2mo

1- Shortest I can think of was Tuesdays With Morrie. (192 pgs)
2- Longest was , And Ladies of the Club. ( 1184 pgs)
3- Oldest is Before Women Had Wings ( 1996) I don‘t keep lots of books around, so that‘s the oldest I could find .
4-Newest is 11-5-19 ( on my Kindle)

#bookquestion #EST

Amiable Oh, I loved “And Ladies of the Club“ -- I must have read that 3 or 4 times when I was younger! 2mo
ljuliel @Amiable I‘ve only read it once, and liked it a lot. For some reason, the story reminded me a bit of my Grandma. Her life wasn‘t exactly like any of the ladies in the book, but those years would‘ve been around the same time frame as hers , and she also lived in Southern Ohio. 2mo
Eggbeater I read "And Ladies of the Club" over 20 years ago and it still holds a special place in my heart. The amazing thing is the author wrote that novel in her 80s and it was her first one! That's inspiring! 2mo

Amiable @ljuliel I loved the idea of a group of women getting together to discuss books for so many years of their lives. @eggbeater The book is like a warm bath that you can sink into -- so comforting! 2mo
ljuliel @Eggbeater , yes, quite inspiring. Gives me hope that there‘s still a novel floating around in my old head someplace. 👵🏼👍🏼 2mo
ljuliel @Amiable , yes, it was a bit like growing older with them, going through all the things they did. 2mo

Djspens Lol I love #1!!! If only he'd do that!!! 2mo
ljuliel Wow, I think your #1 might win for shortest ! My grandma had a really old bird book that I looked at every time we visited. It was small with a red cover. Not sure how old it was v 2mo
AnansiGirl Book #1 needs to be an audiobook read by Samuel L Jackson! 2mo
Eggbeater @AnansiGirl 😂 That would be perfect! 2mo

@ljuliel

ljuliel Thank you for the answers ! Nothing wrong with being a Stephen King fan. I think you‘re in quite a large crowd in that area. He‘s very popular . I need to post my answers when I get a couple minutes. I think your short book beats mine. I‘m not sure on page counts. Thanks again ! 📚 (edited) 2mo

CarolynM Great questions, but I only know the answer to no.3 (1670) and it would take me much too long to work out the others 😬 2mo
ljuliel Wow, @CarolynM ! What‘s the book ? That‘d be neat to have a book that old. 2mo
CarolynM The Remains of Sir Fulke Grevile Lord Brooke Being Poems of Monarchy and Religion. It's a rebind, though, probably around 1800. We also have a set of Clarendon's History from circa 1705 in original bindings. We used to collect antiquarian books when we had two professional salaries and no kids😂 2mo
ljuliel That must be an interesting hobby. I‘d know nothing about which books were worth purchasing, and how much to spend. Do you have to keep them sealed up in any way since they‘re so old ? 2mo
