For me, I think I've done this a good amount of times. I've done it for the Stormlight Archive books when I was near the end and I felt like I could marathon the rest of it. I also did it for the last Wheel of Time book during the infamously long chapter (if you've read the book you'll know what I'm talking about).
Has a book ever captured your attention so well you literally couldn't put it down all day?
Edit: So, the reason I made this post was because I just spent the entire day reading Brandon Sanderson’s The Hero of Ages, which is the third book in his Mistborn era 1 series. I started at around 7 am and finished the book literally 20 minutes ago, only stopping to write this post. I thought I was crazy for reading non stop for so long but seeing all these responses just makes me smile knowing that I’m not alone in my insane reading habits.
You guys are awesome!
My roommate and I (both 20f) don’t know each other that well. We have mutual friends who both knew we needed roommates at the beginning of the year, so set us up. We’re not in the apartment at the same time very often, so I wouldn’t say we’re friends, but we don’t dislike each other.
At the beginning of last week, my roommate told me she was going to go back to her hometown (about 2 hours away) because her dad was sick and she wanted to be with her family. I said okay, see you when you’re back, the usual. That night, I invited my boyfriend over and we ended up getting a bit drunk, which resulted in him puking red wine all over my bed. It was like 3am at this point, and I was tipsy, so I dragged him over to my roommates bed and we both fell asleep.
The next morning my boyfriend went home, but I was hungover and didn’t want to wash my sheets yet, so I just stayed in my roommates bed. I ended up sleeping and staying in my roommates bed for the rest of the week.

So my(25m) sister(19f) is staying with me during quarantine because I live in her college city and our mom is across the country. I live in a two bedroom apartment, but the second bedroom I had been using as a game room/office.
Our mom sent her some money for a bed when she moved in, but my sister spent it on a new computer. Since then she’s been sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor. For about a month now she’s been whining that it’s uncomfortable and I’d just been ignoring her. Apparently she texted my girlfriend about it because when I talked to her she said it’s “inhumane” that I’m making her sleep on the floor and I should buy a cheap bed for her.
I don’t see why I should have to since she can move back with my mom, or sell her computer and buy a bed. She was given money, it’s not like she didn’t have a chance.
I’m surprised she couldn’t feel me shaking as I looked upon the face that I’d been seeing outside my window for weeks.
He awoke before the Pearly Gates where saint Peter said,"You died in your sleep Ralph."
Ralph was stunned. "I'm dead?No I can't be! I've got too much to live for. Send me back!
"St Peter said," I'm sorry, but there's only one way you can go back, and that is as a chicken."
Ralph was devastated, but begs St Peter to send him to a farm near his home. The next thing he knew, he was covered with feathers, clucking, and pecking the ground.
A rooster strolled past."So you're the new hen, huh? How's your first day here?"
"Not bad,"replied Ralph the Hen,but I have this strange feeling inside, like I'm going to explode."
"You're ovulating, explained the rooster.Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before."
"Well just relax and let it happen," says the rooster" It's no big deal."
Ralph did, and a few uncomfortable seconds later, out popped an egg! Ralph was overcome with emotion as he experienced motherhood. He soon laid another egg – his Joy was overwhelming.

Throwaway because my boyfriend uses Reddit.
I (29m) prefer going to bed wearing pajama top and pants. I always have as it's just more comfortable for me and I get cold. However, my boyfriend (30m) hates it. He only wears boxers to bed, but we sleep in the same bed.
He's asked me multiple times to just wear boxers like him and he says it's "frigid and childish". Last night he refused to let me get into bed until I had taken off my pajamas and I spent the whole night cold. He says that, seeing as I am currently staying at his apartment, I should follow his rules, which includes no pajamas in bed.
AITA for preferring to wear pajamas?
Earlier this year my brother and his boyfriend split up and his boyfriend kept the apartment so my brother was left homeless.
My mum let him move back here under the condition that me and him alternate between the sofa and the bed. After 1 night on the sofa he said he was too stressed out by my stepdad getting up early that he didn't want to sleep on it and when it was my night for the bed he'd say "I'm upset can I have the bed tonight please? I want a decent night sleep" so I said yeah the first few times. That was 4 months ago and i've been on the sofa every night because he flat out refuses to.
Lately my joints have been aching more and its hurts to move. I have earls danlos syndrome so my joints tend to ache more when I can't move much and on the sofa it's hard to get into a position where something doesn't slip out. I tried to talk to my parents about it but I got shouted at and my mum screamed what does I expect her to do?.
Yesterday he called my room his room and screamed at... keep reading on reddit ➡
I asked her why she was doing this
"I'm your mother"
I said, "If I was doing this i would get grounded."
"Do I not have privacy?"
What she said next phisically pains me
"Well, I'm sitting here next to you waiting for you to wake up with nothing to do, so I was bored."
"Why were you waiting?"
"you have schoolwork and I want you to get started on it"
"Then tell me to get started on it and don't look through my stuff!"
I don't know how long she was there, or what she looked through, but damn, really?
Edit: Yes I have a password. I'm not THAT stupid. Somehow she figured it out and here we are.
Edit 2: To all the people saying "Well, you don't pay for it, so screw you."
That's akin to saying, "Do you pay for the house? No. So take the door off the bathroom."
Edit 3: There's a bunch of people saying that I should be happy I have a phone. I am. 100%. The problem I have is that we're all entitled to privacy (even my fucking mother) no matter if it's online, offline... keep reading on reddit ➡
My husband and I are currently expecting our first child and this will also be the first grandbaby for all the grandparents. Needless to say, everybody is very excited!!
Unfortunately we're dealing with a lot of extra pushback due to the pandemic situation (my JustNoMother keeps pressuring us to let her hold our newborn the minute he's born even though she's not quarantining, etc.) Husband and I have been pretty clear that we will be strict.
My MIL and FIL live a 6-7 hour drive away, however, and it's not even legal for them to come visit us for the forseeable future. Still, on our last Zoom call, my MIL insisted that husband and I buy a queen sized or larger guest bed to take up one of our bedrooms so that they can come stay with us regularly (starting as early as July!) because "Now that FIL is retired and I'm working from home, we have much more flexibility and will want to visit often and are sick of staying in hotels."
My view is that there is just no way we are investing in t... keep reading on reddit ➡
My boyfriend and I live together in a one bedroom apartment. Today my boyfriend told me that his dad will be coming up to the city next weekend and he will stay with us. I don’t really see why he would need to stay with us since his brother who he gets along with well lives in the city too and has a house with two guest bedrooms. But whatever, he can stay here for the weekend if it makes my boyfriend happy. However, today when my boyfriend and his dad video called his dad said he is excited to finally sleep in a box spring bed. As soon as he said it I was like umm what? We have a boxspring bed and it was obvious that he thought he would be sleeping in our bed which would leave us to sleep in the living room. I do absolutely not want this for multiple reasons.
· It is our bed, he invited himself and I’m not being kicked out of my own bed.
· He is a heavy smoker and I feel like he literally sweats out smoke and I do not want this in my bed.
· I have various allergies... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm already wearing. My goddamn pyjamas.
We both just cracked up and over the phone I hear him laugh, "Oh, man, you're special.'
Asking for a friend...
EDIT: I feel compelled to add that I'm not depressed, I guess I could've been more specific about that upfront; thank you all for your concern. I daydream a LOT and have executive functioning issues. Thank you everyone who responded, I have so many tricks to uh, give to.. my friend.. who also has those issues...
A few months ago my sister told us she was pregnant. It hasn’t been great since we’ve found out. I have to do all the harder chores since the pregnancy is considered a higher risk since it’s twins. I’m also basically not allowed to have any of my favorite foods anymore because my sister says the smells make her nauseous.
Now she’s saying that her bed is too hard and she’s having trouble sleeping and her body aches when she wakes up. So mom and her think I should trade beds with her since mine is softer and also because it’s smaller and she will need more room when the babies are born.
Besides me not liking firmer beds my room is a converted attic room so I already don’t have a lot of space. If I had her bigger bed I would lose a lot of the remaining space I have.
Also my bed frame has drawers underneath that I use to store my things. My sisters bed frame doesn’t have drawers and sits directly on the ground meaning I wouldn’t be able to even store my stuff under there. So I would... keep reading on reddit ➡
(21M) Okay so, computers are my biggest hobby. I love computers and I love video games. My wife however (20F) hates anything to do with my hobby because “It takes time away from US”.
Ever since I was a kid computers and video games have been my escape. I moved around a lot as a kid so to this day I don’t have but 1 “old friend”. So that stuff holds certain emotional attachment to me. And so it really hurts when she just blatantly disregards that part of my life.
So, I started sneaking out of bed right after we go to sleep so I can either take my computer apart to clean it, or play some games with my army buddies. I did this for a couple days before she noticed.
She ended up coming into my office and asking me to go back to bed with her, and I said fine and went to back to bed. While we were in bed though she told me how I was being unfair because she wants me in bed with her and that when she wakes up and I’m not there it upsets her. And I understand that, but at the same time, I... keep reading on reddit ➡
Yes you read that title correctly and no I’m not dating a 5 year old. So about a week ago my 20 year old girlfriend wet our bed and I haven’t been able to sleep with her since. After the incident she cried and was very embarrassed and I told her that it doesn’t matter because it doesn’t change my opinion on her. That night I told her that I was sleeping on the couch and she was hurt but understanding. But now she’s claiming that it’s been a week and that I should sleep with her but I’m still feel not comfortable with sleeping with her. She says me not sleeping with her is making her insecure even though I’ve reassured her that I still love her.
I was just wondering aita also is it healthy for her to wet the bed(this is the first time in our 9 month relationship that this has happened)
Edit: I’ve realised I was in the wrong but my girlfriend says she doesn’t want to share the bed with me now, which I understand, what can I do now to make the situation better.

I'm writing this late at night so excuse me for any errors.
For context: I'm 14M and lately, my mom has been making my sister sleep in my bed. I value my privacy, and I've literally been babysitting her for MONTHS now. I think that's more than enough time spent together. My room is the only private space I get in the house (even the bathrooms aren't safe) and I really don't want my sister to invade it. Every time I ask why it's either she's tired, or she's sick. I call bs on both because she shows no signs of being sick, and she's quite lively, and she randomly gets up at all hours of the night to get food/drink.
She sent my sister to my room tonight and I simply sent her out. I feel like my mom is gonna berate me tomorrow morning, so I need to know before anything happens. AITA?
INFO: No, my sis doesn't have her own room, she normally sleeps in mom's room, and there isn't enough space for another bed (not that we have one anyway)
So I have this resident ghost that has been living with me for around 10+ years. He's pretty funny actually. One time I saw him getting out of my bed and walk into my bathroom. He wore a white long sleeved shirt with ruffles in the middle. He had longish blond hair and looked like he might have been from the 1700s. I couldnt see his face since his back was turned to me. I hear music playing in my room sometimes as well. Sometimes when I sleep on my couch I can hear him stomping down the hallway. Its just minor annoyances. I know its not sleep paralysis or hypnagogic hallucinations. Its happened to me so many times that it doesn't really scare me.
Today I was sleeping in and I felt him sit on my bed. He does that sometimes just to be annoying. I tried to keep sleeping but he kept babbling some nonsensical words that sounded like my brothers voice. I finally had to say out loud "Dude. Get off my bed." I know this sounds crazy, but I find it quite funny.
