How long does it usually take you to stop from reading. Sometimes my body and my eyes are just giving up, but my mind tells me to continue reading. Does it take you hours to stop from reading?

It depends on the book that I'm reading. If the book is very interesting, I'll never stop reading until I finished it. Happy posting!

I love reading books and yes it would take me hours to stop reading. For a 200-pager book,specially if i find it very interesting, i can finish reading it in 3-4 days. I usually start to read after dinner while taking my kid to sleep. And i stop by midnight when i get really sleepy. For me, reading a book is like an obsession that i got literally consumed.

Once I start reading, I am also just like you can't stop it. If I start a book then I think it doesn't take me more than 3-4 days to finish it. I don't get up, I don't eat my food in time, I don't watch tv, almost do nothing until and unless I have finished that book. I even sleep late because of the book lol. So, whenever I am down with a new book, my bf tries alot to hide it whenever I am off it.

It will depend on how interesting I find the book I'm reading. If I'm not really into the book, if I don't find it interesting, then, it won't take me a lot of time to stop reading. However, if I find the book very interesting, then, it will take me a while before I may stop reading. That's really the only thing that will affect the amount of time I read.

It seems like I can't go on reading for hours like I used to. I also usually had no problem going for hours but now, usually a half hour is plenty enough. There have been a few books that I have read in one sitting, including "Carrie" by Stephen King. And If I didn't read "Jaws" inone sitting, It was two. "Carrie" wasn't really that long of a book but jaws was. I can't imagine reading any book in one sitting now.

I am usually tired of reading when my eyes start giving up and I start feeling sleepy.. But normally it doesn't happen so soon.. I can read continously for many hours at a stretch.. But there's always a limit to which I can read continously..

If it's something interesting or I get obbssed over something I could wind up staying up all night, like Mylot I usually don't stop reading until my vision gets blurry or I start to get a headache. Sometimes I even still countine with what ever I'm doing regardless

It depends on how into the book I am. If it is something that I don't really care about it doesnt take me long to quit reading. if it something that I am not that interested in it doesnt really take me along time to stop reading. If I am tired I will stop reading alot sooner than if I am not tired. It just depends.
