ever since when i was kid, i the longest period of time that i continuously read is just about 2 hours. after exceeding 2 hours, i get to lose focus on the material that i am reading. how about you? how long can you continuously read?

I can read for long periods of time. The only thing that would usually force me to stop is when my eyes start to tear. The usual reading marathon I have indulged in usually lasts from say 7 pm until like 3-4 am. Sometimes I would read a book with minor interruptions for a day, like the last Harry Potter. But definitely, if I have a choice, I can just read all day.

Its all a matter of mood .........if i really am in a mood of reading then i can sit for abt 4-5 hours continuously ............but if i'm not interestyed tehn sitting for even half an hour is like a nightmare for me ....... :)

I used to read everyday for hours my favorite kinds of books to read were romance books. I find it hard once I have started the book to put it down unless there is something I know I need to do that is important. I really should get bac into reaading like I once did for there were alot of good books that I read and kinda miss it. It also helps us to escape our every day reality world which I like alot.

It depends. If I am studying i will read several hours, about 6 hours a day. If i read interesting novels, I will read whenever I have time, but I really don't want to break and continue to finish it. I am a quiet man and I can concentrate in my reading for long hours.

Well, I can continously reading for 3 hours now. I found my eyes too tired if I read more than 3 hours. When I was 20, I can continously reading for 5 hour without feel dizzy (I need it to study).
