New Winner in the Paperback Doorstop Sweepstakes
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson has been my previous thickest paperback book (or book that I would most use as a doorstop, a step-ladder or a replacement for a bookend). At more than 1,150 pages (in a paperback!) I figured that record was safe.
But I just received a copy of The Reality Dysfunction by Peter F. Hamliton…the Pan published version, not the Americanized split down versions. This one clocks in at 1,225 pages. A new record….and keeps letting by friend Bob (who has absconded with my copy of Crytonomicon) accuse me of only reading LARGE books.
