Longest Books I’ve Ever Read
I’m going by page count for this one. So this does mean that “longest” will not take font size into account, just the number of pages. I’m going to order it in reverse, with the shortest book first and the longest one last. This is for fiction only, since I don’t feel like including textbooks; and in addition, I am taking out any anthologies which have more than one book in the same volume. I am also keeping this to paper books only, since e-books don’t have pages of the same length as paper books.
10. Elfhome by Wen Spencer – 560 pages
9. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis – 578 pages
8. Talyn by Holly Lisle – 592 pages
7. First Rider’s Call by Kristen Britain – 596 pages
6. Aurian by Maggie Furey – 599 pages
5. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling – 652 pages
4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling – 734 pages
3. Angels & Demons by Dan Brown – 736 pages
2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling – 759 pages
1. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling – 870 pages
Why do I feel like Harry Potter books will top most people’s lists today?
Hmm. Now that I’ve finished this list, I wonder if I should have also distinguished between hardbacks and paperbacks. Oh well. My list includes both.
