I Don't Like to Put Down a Book Before It's Finished

Just a habit 23 People

    It Is a Two Sided Blade

    When I was young it was easy to stay up for nights and finish a book. Worst situation would be skipping a class! But now how can I stay up all night and yet be a caring mother, good wife or flawless employee? This is becoming a burden.
