From Vulture.com: 26 Very Long Books Worth the Time They'll Take to Read

"Binge-watching is easy; just drag the laptop into bed and go. But savouring a book of, say, 800 pages or longer is a project. No book that size is perfect, because excess is kind of the point. What marathon runner doesn't curse the universe or even get bored once in a while? That doesn't negate the rush of endorphins or the thrill of mastery. If you power down your iPhone and power through to the end, one of these books might change your life." (Boris Kachka, Vulture)
BTW, I purposely used gloomy book covers, to emphasise the onerous task ahead, should you decide to read any of these books.
