I have a sister who is good at reading books. I am not a good reader yet. She will sit on the books without even eating or sleeping and read even the complete book in a day or two. Hope there will be many with such or even better records. Can you share your experiences? Which topics inspire you the most for non-stop reading for hours?

Thats pretty intense. A few books I have killed in one day, but this is not normal for me. It happens when I have long days of traveling on planes. Reading is how I entertain myself. On one overseas flight I read a 450 page book over a span of about 30 hours.

I have very often managed to finish one book in one day. Would never attempt starting another book after finishing one so could not have a better record.

Anything that makes you laugh will really keep your lids open and eyeballs reading through the lines. Harry Potter is addictive. But am sure you read it already. One reason why your sister can probably stay up and finish a book is because she's in a quiet environment. NO matter how interesting the book is, if you're not set to read, i doubt if you'll be able to keep your attention on the book.
