Others, like me, interpreted it as an important work in great demand (like Blood Meridian or Silence of the Lambs). And Paul did follow up his "big book" statement by saying it was alone one that many have asked for.

    Now, it is known that Paul has 3 1000-page books in the pipeline. Months back, he even shared a photo of the page block of one he plans to split into two volumes. So there's some evidence for the physical size argument.

    The only 1000 pager I can think up is Imajica and I don't imagine lots of folks have been asking after that one. I love that book, but it's not a huge deal in the collecting world, I don't think.
    Likely not a lot of point in guessing at the moment, but can't hurt either and fun to speculate.

    Maybe it's a large format edition, but not necessarily a lot of pages? But the second point about a lot of people requesting it would seem to narrow it down a bit. I'm not on facebook, so I can only go off what I've seen on various forums. A few thoughts:

    Cormac McCarthy - 'Blood Meridian' - I'd peg this as the most popular request, but not a particularly long book. It's also not particularly a genre book and doesn't really fit the catalog (but the same is true of 'Bridges of Madison County')
    Thomas Pynchon - 'Gravity's Rainbow' - not seen a ton of folks asking for this, but a few and would qualify as a 'large' book, Mason/Dixon or Against the Day could also fit here
    Murakami - The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle - relatively long and a fair bit of folks seem interested
    Tolkein - Lord of the Rings - might be an obvious choice
    Aldous Huxley - 'Brave New World'- a lot of people guessed this as Octobers book
    Anthony Burgess - 'Clockwork Orange' - again, saw this guessed a couple times for October
    Thomas Harris - 'Silence of the Lambs' - wouldn't be my first guess, but seems to be a popular ask

    Going strictly by length - I haven't seen a ton of requests for these, but all have pockets of popularity

    Margaret Atwood - Madaddam Trilogy - would be sizeable if put into a single volume, have seen it mentioned occasionally but not a lot
    Neal Stephenson - a lot of long books here, but well covered by Subterranean
    David Foster Wallace - Infinite Jest
    Rand - Atlas Shrugged

    Yes, I was surprised about that as well...to my eye, the similarity between the two is fairly pronounced.

    Anyway, I hope the Heinlein set isn't super expensive. I'm running out of money and time.
    Pretty bummed about the Heinlein set. Hopefully January will turn it around for me.
