Hi,

Quite a random question but just out of interest, what's the longest time you've spent reading a fiction book in a day? I do enjoy reading, but sometimes I end up feeling bad and thinking I could be doing something more productive after sitting there reading for a long time x

I don't really picture it much either, although I would like to, if that makes sense x

About 6 hours straight, when Harry Potter 7 came out. No regrets.

Wow 7 hours! Yeah it is productive but sometimes I feel like I should focus more on uni reading instead of getting lost in the fiction.

Has anyone read the Shopaholic books? I'm on the 2nd one at the moment. Getting a bit bored so might start an unrelated fiction book before moving onto the 3rd one x

I went through a phase like that and just decided to read random controversial stuff to get back into it.

Turns out Lolita is an amazing book

Last time a read a book was in reception.

It was a 7 page, 3 words per page book.

It was the longest 5 minute of my life.

Haven't finished or wanted to actually read a book since (only when I was forced in GCSE English.)

One week I read a book every day and spent like the whole day reading (I was very bored on holiday) so probably like 6-8 hours for 5 days straight
