Austin Macauley’s Five Lengthy Books to Keep You Hooked


“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

– C. S. Lewis

Reading long books is no less than a project. It requires dedication and commitment. You do not just read the books; you live within them for a while. Long books have their charm, the characters are described in such detail that the readers get lost in the story. Lengthy books allow readers to live in the world they are offering. Reading lengthy books requires patience and time. However, with the ongoing pandemic and social distancing becoming the new norm reading can be  an entertaining way to lose track of time.

We present to you a list of Austin Macauley Publishers’ lengthy books that will keep you hooked till the very end. With 500 pages or more, these books are definitely worth your time.
