Simple Pleasure of the Day: I couldn't put it down!

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" post
There's an unofficial book club taking off with my friends after one recommended a book with such praise she gave us the eBook version free and was saying "I couldn't put it down, I read it in a night, you've gotta read it" to convince us of its awesomeness.  So far it's FANTASTIC, to the point where it is sooooooo hard to take a break from reading in order to write this post.  I'm sure my entire night is at state with this book, and that's why my SPOTD is not being able to put a book down for hours and hours because it is THAT good.

A reading marathon such as this may cause the following:

- Sleep deprovation.  Staying up til 4am to finish a book means the following day you will feel intellectually hung over by the story you read and how it affected your shortened dreams as a result.

- Community involvement.  The book is so good you just have to talk to somebody who has read it so you can giggle/scream/rant/cry/laugh/etc over it!

- More reading marathon nights.  No matter how much you wish you can sleep, let the addiction of reading trump shuteye every once in a while.  It just means you're reading a lot of good books, or you're too stubborn to spread a book out for longer than a day.
