World's best doorstops

Yesterday AbeBooks posted a summer reading list of the world's best doorstops or, to use a more literary term, "the 15 best single-volume behemoths." From David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest to Atlas Shrugged, these are serious bricks; although there are a couple of slackers in the 900s, most are over a thousand pages. On the minus side, you may get carpal tunnel before you're through; on the plus side, if you enjoy one of these, there's plenty of it to love.

To my great pride and everlasting glory (yay me!), I have read seven of them in total, and in fact four of them I've read several times. Among the latter is the (unabridged) Count of Monte Cristo, which is an AWESOME book I return to over and over again, though not one to be tackled lightly. (Literally -- it weighs about 3lbs. Get it on the Kindle if you can.)

Pound for pound I may have read my own weight in books just off this list.
