What is the quickest you've ever read a book? Have you ever read a book in one day?

Few hours probably. I read fast.
I read books in a day all the time. The Sookie books took me one day per book and that's only because I have 5 kids to take care of

If it's like a mini novel (like the Blaze books) I can read in a few hours if I'm not disturbed, but since that never happens it usually takes a day if I'm really into it

I've a book in a day before. But I don't get to do it as often nowadays. I never get a solid block of time to read - I'd have to lose the kids in order to do that. I think the last time I read a book in a day was back in December because I was rushing to try to finish my reading challenge.

I read very fast, robert jordan books usually take me a day- light or short reads is a few hours, I usually leave it on the counter and if I get a chance to stand there and read a few pages I will.

the night after my dad passed away I couldn't sleep and between 10pm and 6am I read New Moon and Eclipse... who remembers the heart attack in New Moon- I wish I'd known that before I started reading it... I was a freaking wreck since I had just lost my dad so suddenly to one at 1pm.

I did that with Eclipse (between work and such too lol) I would have for New Moon too, but my bff wanted to go to seattle for the day so to make the long drive I had to give up reading NM, but finished it when we got home (well the next morning)
