    I guess you could consider it all night.

    A long time ago.. It was the first (relatively long) fiction book that I'd become completely immersed in and I didn't want to stop reading until the end. My friend was dying for me to read it so she let me borrow hers, and I ended up finishing it just before midnight.

    Have you ever just regret pulling an all

    nighter on a school night? Because then you fall asleep, and can't get up. I'm just listening to Trailer Trash Tracy. All I did all night was finish my book~

    I need to do this again

    but adult life is so much more busy and tiresome! Can't remember the last time I did this. I miss those days.

    I finished a series in 18 hours.

    The reason ereaders rule is I didn't have to wait for the bookstore to open. I can dl the series at 4 am which Is what I did. Finished at 7 am or something. That was sometime this past summer. Overall I felt fulfilled. I always have to know what happens.

    I have a bad habit of doing this.

    I just get so into a book and can't put it down. Its physically impossible for me to do so. I have a crazy obsession with reading. I just love it.

    Quite A Few Times...

    I've stayed up quite a few times to read books. Some small, some large. I remember a while ago when I was reading the fifth Harry Potter book, I was reading it from 12 PM to 12 AM, and I only stopped to get something to eat or drink. I love the Harry Potter series, and I want to...

    Have done this with some good mysteries

    or well-written fantasy novels (Watership Down). Mostly do it when my asthma meds have me wired and I can't sleep. Did this last night and read all of "The Storied Life of A. J. Fikery," not a great book, but a fun read: most especially because it's a novel about booksellers...

    who would have done what I have just done and sat down for 13 hours to read an entire SK book. As always with his stories, it was incredible. Sometimes I wonder if I am the only one my age who still reads, but I already know that I am not. It is sad to think how few there are...

    Can't Put A Good Book Down.

    This is why I always run out of good books. When I get one, I tend to get so engrossed that I'll read it cover to cover in more or less one sitting, much to the detriment of my social life and work :D Pratchett is particularly bad at writing books that are impossible to put down...

    The Help By Kathryn Stockett

    It was a page turner for me.  It was somewhere between 300 and 400 pages.I read it in two nights.  Good book.Too bad the movie sucked and her sister who hosted a movie night at a local theater is a snob.

    When I get a book I usually feel the need to read it as soon as possible. I'll read a 500 page novel in a day and if that means staying up all night to do it then I will. I find I get engrossed in to, I tell myself "one more chapter then bed" "I'll get to page xx and then bed...

    I remember I wanted to see how many books I could read in a single night. I learnt how to speed read when I was a child, but I always tried not to speed read in school because I was afraid I would miss something important. So I went to the library and checked out a few books...

    So Many Times

    If I find a good book, I can stay up all night reading it. In fact, I can read 200 pages a day. If I'm absorbed in the book, I never notice the time. I have to force myself to go to sleep so that I can wake up in the morning. ^.^   Ah, good times.

    Sometimes things just progress,

    and I was happy to progress reading. I was so eager to finish it that I didn't feel tired any more. It was a strange sensation. But the most incredible thing was when I looked out of my open curtains and saw that it was light. It was a new day, and it was weird how I'd been...
