Post Re: How long do you usually read in one sitting?
As I mentioned in another post, I have a hard time reading for long periods of time without getting tired. I think the longest I have read in one sitting was 3 hours. I'm an extremely slow reader already, so you mix that with my sleepiness during reading and that equals taking FOREVER to read a book. The current book I am reading now is 387 pages long and it's taken me 5 days to read 312 pages so far. I'm hoping to finish it up tonight or tomorrow and start on a new one!

i'm thinking of that routine where you end up nodding off because you're too tired to read so you end up taking a whole week reading the same chapter over and over again hoping not only to get through it but even remember that you finished it. :-D

You are so close to hitting the nail on the head...lol...I did finally finish that book I mentioned and now my dilemma is trying to get into the new one I have chose. I HATE starting a new story...it makes me feel like I'm channel surfing or something :slap:

I usually wake up around 1 or 2 am, and then can't get back to sleep. So i read till it gets light, about 7 am. Though i do sometimes nod off in the middle

Post Re: How long do you usually read in one sitting?
I wish I can read longer as you guys. Due to my busy schedule, I can read in a maximum of an hour in just one sitting. But I read many times. It's just that I can't do any longer in one sitting.

I'm retired and I still don't have time to read for hours! Usually one or two but I'll usually put it down for a few minutes every half hour or so to rest my eyes or have a stretch. If it's a really good book I'm stuck between wanting to finish it and not wanting it to end!

Probably 2-3 hours a day, every day. In the afternoon I usually work on my other passion of doing difficult crossword puzzles like the NY Times and LA Times Sunday puzzle. I get my reading done in the evening before I turn in.
