18. Massive Tome....The Stand by Stephen King
This is the first book that came to mind for this challenge as the original edition was 823 pages (King later added 400 more in an uncut edition). I read this before the coming of the kindle and it makes me laugh that now it sits on my book-storing machine along with The Lord of the Rings, all the Harry Potter books and about 200 others. I still love (and have) well stocked bookshelves but it does make travelling a little easier! This book is another apocalyptic adventure, starts the story with a virus that wipes out the majority of America's population and tells the story the survivors who travel and find each other along the way.
