Jonathan Strange is also a long resident of my not-read pile! It clocks in at about 150 pages less than Kushiel, although that may be because I'm comparing paperback to hardcover. I am also scared of it!

I got through Great Expectations and Oliver Twist in one sitting each just fine but washed up on Pickwick Papers (less than Bleak House but still twice Oliver Twist.)

Yeah, I never really learned to enjoy reading novels a little bit at a time, I guess. When you can finish the average one in 2-3 hours you don't really have to! Until you hit the 900-page ones.
