What’s the latest you’ve ever stayed up reading a book? Is staying up late reading a usual thing for you?
I try not to stay up late reading—I’m one of those people who needs her eight hours of sleep, otherwise I become irritable and generally unpleasant. Since I usually carve out some time to read before bed, I rarely do, but it has happened—I couldn’t put down Jacqueline Carey’s The Sundering until I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore.
But the latest I’ve ever stayed up reading a book would go to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I received my book at midnight, went home, settled into the guest bedroom (far from everyone else), and read for eight hours straight. I went to bed around eight-thirty in the morning, and I don’t recall how long it took me to recover from it.
