Last weekend, two books actually. The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason and The Fifth Gospel by Ian Caldwell.

I actually do this a lot! I finished If I Break by Portia Moore today in one sitting.

I've never been able to read any book in one sitting! I'm pretty slow at reading, but when I do, I try to catch a lot of what's actually being said, yet sometimes it goes to naught.

I read a James Patterson book while my flight was delayed at Dallas airport. Then I returned it with the receipt, and got another book!

I finished this book, Not All Americans Are Racist by Nicole Weaver and realized that it was a 'single sitting' read.

I do this quite often, but only with children's books because they are easy reads. I really don't have time to read a "grown-up" book in one sitting!

It's been quite a while since I have read a book straight thru in one sitting. The last time if I recall correctly, was Go Ask Alice which is anonymously written. It's a spectacular feeling.

Not in a long while unfortunately, since the last winter storm at least. Not sure if this is a commentary on how busy life can be these days though.
