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:

Hi everybody! If the book it's very interesting I can read until 2 hours, but this, if a don't have nothing to do that nowadays is difficult to happen!!

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

I never liked to read childish books such as Harry Porter and etc.. and I never did it. I'd rather spend that time by reading any book of Immanuel Kant.

I usually read two hours.

Never said you have to. I read book sixth in four hours when I first bought it. I had to ponder over the facts and remember the old connections. This time I just read the books through. It only took me two to three hours for each book 2 and 3, about four hours for book 4, about five hours for book 5 and about three hours for book 6. You can calculate the math to see if I could finish them in one day or not.
