I've made a fresh resolution for this year. I am NOT going to count any book or audiobook that I buy this year for my ROOT totals. I will try to read at least 25 titles, which is laughable considering my backlog.
One request. When I was browsing through other groups and their posts I came across a slang word for very long books. I can't remember it. Would someone help?
>1 Coach_of_Alva: That's the way that I do it, everything counted as a ROOT has to be acquired before the end of December the year before. Good luck with your ROOT goals.
>1 Coach_of_Alva: The other possible word you're thinking of is "chunkster".
Good luck with ROOTing in 2018!
Back to chunksters or BFBs: how long do they have to be to qualify?
Some (like me) use 500 pages as a minimum. The BFB-challenge group uses 600 pages. (I'm a member there too)
David, are you a member of the group yet? I don't see you in the list of members!
Welcome back, David and good luck with your 25! I always wonder if there's a Scottish connection with your user name?
I tried to wrestle with the Ticker Factory one more time and have decided to consign it to outer darkness. I just can't figure it out.

I broke my rules for The Sorcerer's Apprentice, for I bought it in 2018. What does whoever reads this think of it?
Thinks of you breaking your rules or about the book?
Breaking the rules - you make your own rules.
Description doesn't sound like something I want to read.
