Monday Musings

Monday Musings is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.  Today's Monday Musing asks:

What is the longest book you have ever read?  How long did it take you to read it?

The longest book I've ever read is Gone with the Wind (1,011 pages).  I read it the summer I was 14 years old.  I can not remember how long it took me to read it, but I do have a vivid vision of myself sitting barefoot on my front stoop wearing my favorite jeans with the rip in the knees and reading it in the shade of a giant maple tree. Scarlet O'Hara is still my favorite character from literature.  

How about you?  What's the longest book you have ever read?  And a related question...  Does the length of a book influence whether or not you will choose to read it, regardless of how interesting the story sounds?
