Finishing A Book In One Sitting

So, I’m sure there are a lot of people out there who have (at least once) read a book in one sitting. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to me, reading a book in one sitting is pretty intense and really overwhelming. I usually feel overly guilty when I finish reading the book (especially if it’s a good one) because it feels like I didn’t give the book justice in these few hours I spent reading it. And I know for a fact that the book My Heart And Other Black Holes deserved more than 7 hours. But I finished it in one sitting with a guilty conscience. I guess finishing a book in one sitting does have its pros. Like dedicating your whole day  for that awesome book and the world these characters live in. And getting to know these people without the least bit of a distraction. To be honest, I still have mixed feelings about this idea, and I constantly need reassurance that I’m not committing a crime by finishing a book this fast. It somehow feels illegal. So what are your thoughts?

    I think it’s a great thing to do! I often will book a day off work, set out early, and have a cafe and book day – read a bit in each cafe before moving on. It feels very self- indulgent but we all deserve that sometimes. It’s a great way to immerse yourself in a shorter book that can be finished in a day. Ps great gif
