the same book - as you said - 3-4 hour-time is the longest one I catch the author's idea properly, the fact is I can change books 8)

i can usually spend around 4-5 hours for reading a book if i don't have anything else to do and i'm completely free and, of course, if the book is interesting... i can read longer than that to finish the book but it rarely happens 'cuz there hardly comes a time when i don't have anything else to do. :P
sometimes i find the book i read so nice that i have it with me even while having food to continue reading as soon as i'm done with my food :wink:

Yeah. I reread book 1 one night, and it gave me a feeling to reread all of them. Thus, the next day when I first got up I brought the books to bed to read right away. I stayed in bed the whole day.

Next week, my cousin came over and told me what I was doing; I was freaking my sister out. She told me my sister said I was a geek staying in bed to READ for. a. whole. day. :twisted:

Wah, I did the same for Harry Potter too. I didn't have the heart to put it down till I finished.

For me, if the book is interesting ( Maybe definition of "interesting" here could be different to each of us) I can read it for hours, day and night.
Anyway, this habit only applied on fictions :p
