'A la recherche du temps perdu; by Marcel Proust contains an estimated 9,609,000 characters. The title of this French novel translates to "Remembrance of Things Past" and apparently it is the longest book out there. I am not sure how many more there are quite like this, but I can imagine it taking a very long time to read it!

So then... what is the longest book that you read? How many characters or pages did it have? How long did it take you to finish it? Or maybe you are still reading it?

The longest book I've read to be honest is the Harry Potter books. I read all 7 books in my youth. Most people would say the same. I wish I could say I was a huge reader of novels but not in the least. Considering how big the book is, I think most people would be in the same predicament for the longest book. The lord of the rings is another long book though I have not read it.
