Atlas Shrugged

It is my month to pick the book for the club book.  So far, we’ve been mindful of what each reader can stand, and we have limited our choices to 600 pages or less.


Until now.

I chose Atlas Shrugged which is 1200 pages.


I blame Mad Men.  Bert Cooper keeps quoting Ayn Rand. I’ve heard constant references made to Atlas Shrugged and about how it’s such an important novel. One of my Facebook friends has gone so far to exclaim that this book has made the most impact on his life, next to the Bible. I guess a lot of people think that.

Anyhoo, here are other lengthy books on my to be read list:


  1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
  2. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
  3. The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas
  4. The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins
  5. An Echo In the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
