You have some really long books here. I've read Gone With the Wind - long ago and a long book. And I've read the Harry Potter book and it might be my favorite of the series. Otherwise, nope - not read and very likely won't. Enjoying seeing what people have listed. :-)
I read the first three Harry Potter books. Then I saw the movies, and decided not to worry about reading the rest of the books. I dunno. Maybe some day.
Yes, long books can be pretty intimidating. I'm with you on Les Mis! I tried it and...I just can't.
I read a good chunk of Les Mis a couple of years ago. I love the story, I just don't see myself ever finishing the book. Maybe I'll read an abridged version some day, or listen to the audio book.
I tried Les Mis .. I gave it a month or so, but just couldn't finish it. Was quite a slog. I did like Wolf Hall, though Hilary Mantel isn't casual reading. Jill - do yourself a favor and read both Gone With Wind and Middlemarch - they are two of my favorite books.
