What’s the largest, thickest, heaviest book you ever read? Was it because you had to? For pleasure? For school?
Oh, of course it was for pleasure—I’m a fantasy fan, thank you very much! A quick glance at Amazon tells me that technically, The Way of Kings is the heaviest book I’ve ever read, weighing in at 3 pounds. However, my copy of The Way of Kings is an ARC and therefore a paperback, making it lighter. The winner, then, is Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, weighing in at 2.8 pounds (sorry, Harry Potter).
