Orannia at Walkabout is hosting The Big Book Challenge for 2010. The rules are:
- Read a big book, and by a big book I mean a book with more than 500 pages, before the end of 2010.
- A review is not required.
- The big book can be from any fiction genre (e.g. fantasy, romance, science fiction). It can even be non-fiction.
- No penalties if the book isn't read by the end of 2010 (because this is meant to be fun).
- The book can be changed at any time!
