Have you ever read a book nonstop from the moment you woke up to the moment you went to bed? If so, what book was it?

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!

Friendly reminder that YA books are for teenagers.

Now before you jump on me, this is not an adults can't read YA post. This is a adults who read YA need to remember who YA is for post.

I've been floating around the arc (advanced reader copy) circuit for a while. Read some good stuff, read some bad, read some meh. This past weekend I had the privilege of reading one of the best books I've had the privilege of reading in a long time. YA fantasy that was beautifully written and equal parts dark, funny and suspenseful. The teenaged characters acted authentically like teenagers, which unfortunately is incredibly rare in YA.

Edit: For those who are interested, the book is Remnants of Atonement by G.P McKenna. It doesn't release until October, so likely only available through netgalley, but if you have an account and enjoy ya fantasy, I highly recommend requesting it.

Today I logged on to leave my feedback and thought I would nosey around in the reviews, only for my heart to sink. Everybody seemed to agree the plot was good and the wri

A woman is walking through the park when she sees a very attractive man sitting on a park bench. He's reading a book and eating some fruit out of a Tupperware container. Slowly the woman gathers the courage to go ask the man out.

So, she walks over and takes a seat next to him on the bench, turns to him and says, "Sorry to bother you. I know this may be a little forward but I would love to grab coffee with you some time." Flattered, the man responds, "Sure... but what makes you so certain you and I would get along so well?"

"Well," the woman says, "A couple things, actually. I noticed you were wearing an Iron Maiden t-shirt. Iron Maiden are my favourite band of all time. When they went on their reunion tour in 1999 my parents took me to see them in Cleveland. I was 12 years old, it was the first concert I ever went to. I absolutely love Iron Maiden. "

The man can't believe it. "I saw them play Cleveland in '99! First concert I ever went to on my own. My best friend Jimmy Spitz and I told our parents we were sleeping at each others' houses, snuck out, took a bus into the city and saw them play at the Plain Dealer Pavillion!" Naturally, they're both shocked.

Like honestly I had to buy steaphen Kings gunslinger with the movie cover because no one carried the original art work one and this happens everytime a book movie comes out and they put that big stamp that says "now a major motion picture" please god why.

Is it just me or are you guys the same about it

Edit: everyone I am so happy to see a lot of passion in the comments on this post, from personal experience on buying books, knowing why this done and how it can be helpful for people to be readers, to readers enjoying books as a whole.

Hello I am James Veitch.

I read 50 books this year

Hey guys. I just wanted to tell you that I read 50 books this year. It's pretty big deal for me as i started reading books this year. I am from Nepal, a third world country. I read all fifty books by pirating, yes by pirating. I really had no choice. A book in Nepal cost around Rs500-1000($4-$8, Also there has been an increase in import duty on books). So averaging a book at $6, its like $300. And as a middle class family member $300 is huge amount. Its like Rs.35000, which is my high school fees lol (I'm 17 and i'm graduating high school this year). So yeah I'm kinda proud of reading these huge number of books (a little thanks to quarantine too.) and a little guilty of pirating.

Tl;dr: I read 50 books by pirating.

Anyway my favourites so far are: The kite runner, It ends with us, Wonder, The Hate U Give, All the bright Places, Simon vs The homo sapiens Agenda, On the come up.

Hey book resellers...USE STICKERS WE CAN REMOVE

My wife and I don't buy new books often. There's so many things to read stretching back like...forever. so we shop almost exclusively through Better World Books and sometimes through Abe Books.

But EVERY SINGLE TIME they show up with stickers on the spine that come off and leave behind a lovely sticky residue.

How badly could it affect your bottom line to use plastic stickers that come off clean?

I found 6 of the Chronicles of Narnia books at a bookstore once and got the missing one from Abe Books a few years ago and it came with a sticker on the spine, making the set not really a set. I contacted their customer service just to say, "Hey, not sure if anyone has said this but the janky stickers kind of harm the product." They gave me a refund but I didn't want a refund, I just wanted the title of Prince Caspian to be visible when it's on the damn shelf!

How it isn't standard, I don't think I'll ever understand. But maybe I'm just crazy.

A recommendation for legitimately most terrifying book I've ever read.

I've never been a huge fan of books and only read them when they're being bombarded with amazing reviews and such. Iain Reid's debut novel, I'm Thinking of Ending Things, isn't one of those books, but I rather decided to read it after it was announced that Charlie Kaufman would adapt it as his next film. I'm Thinking of Ending Things is about a couple going down to visit the girlfriend's parents and barnhouse, with some very strange things occuring on the way. Some of the dialogue is geniunely mindbending, and I found myself questioning everything happening up until the very end. I was enthralled and read it all in one night, and I couldn't stop thinking about it. It's actually the most terrifying and bone chilling book I've ever read, mostly due to how well it hides it's true nature in between each word. I highly recommend it to horror fans fond of weird, cerebral stories (The Lighthouse for example) and creepy, unnerving stories (Hereditary for example).

Will GoodReads please, for the love of God, put the year the book was originally published somewhere and not just the edition you are viewing?

Seriously what the fuck is this about? I mean the longer a book has been the harder it is to find out when it was originally published without leaving the site/app and going to Wikipedia.

I have no problem with knowing the year the specific edition I was reading was published and in many cases that could provide helpful context. But they display the date the edition was published in a prominent place and in a way that leads you to believe it is the original publication date.

I feel like there could be a pretty simple fix to this and save a lot of headaches, at least on my end. Idk am I crazy in letting this bother me as much as it does?

Edit- thanks for my first award! Also, as has been pointed out, this seems to primarily be a problem with their app and not the site version.

Thirty years ago, I made a game called Prince of Persia. Later, I worked with Ubisoft (as game designer) and Walt Disney Pictures (as screenwriter) to relaunch the franchise with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time––the game in 2003, the movie in 2010.

Now we're celebrating the original game's 30th anniversary with a new illustrated and annotated hardcover book of my 1980s game-dev journals: The Making of Prince of Persia, just published by Stripe Press. Ask me anything!

Well, ALMOST anything. I can’t answer questions about unannounced projects, even (especially) Prince of Persia. Alas.

AMA - I am Paul "Redeye" Chaloner, esports host, caster, agency owner and now book author - ASK ME ANYTHING!

Hello fellow dota folks (or those who have come from further a field)! I am, like many of you, stuck inside in self isolation trying to stay safe and help keep others safe from this wretched virus.

We should be in Birmingham right now, getting ready for the first day inside a packed arena, celebrating dota along with some epic matches from the best teams in the world. Tomorrow is also the day my esports book is released by Bloomsbury (yes, the Harry Potter people!) titled This is Esports (and how to spell it).

To help celebrate the launch of the book and to help me from going completely nuts stuck inside on my own, I decided to do an AMA, since I havent done one for many, many years.

I'll open it up now and pop back in an hour or so and start picking up on questions and I'll do that for the next 7 hours or so.

So, ASK ME ANYTHING :)

Books about highly intelligent character, where the character's brilliance is shown in the book rather than the readers being told how smart the character is?

I just finished a book where the main character is supposed to be a genius but there wasn't one scene in the entire book that convinces one of that notion, rather on several occasions, the character is being extolled as the most brilliant guy in town.

The closest one came to seeing the character's intelligence was on a few occasions where said character was told to multiply complex numbers, which if one is being generous makes the character a Mathematical Savant.

So, I'll appreciate books where the characters intelligence and exploits truly stands out.

How to deal with being called out because you can't recall everything youve read in a book.

So I've read a very read a book which tends to towards philosophy about 3 years ago. Someone asked me what it's about and I couldn't recall all and ofc not the thoughts and findings I had during reading, which is completely normal in my opinion. Some things stay some thing pop up when you need them. Turns out he read the book and called me a poser for saying I've read it. I feel treated wrong and I don't know what to do in this situation. This person clearly has some ego problems but I dunno how to deal with it. Isn't it just normal to forget about books, I don't think recalling word for word of a book is the only indicator that you've read it.

D&D beyond books should not cost as much as physical books: Change my mind.

Some of the older folks may remember way back when we were being sold on digitally downloaded media, books, games, etc. We were being given the line that since there is no physical book having to be made, it will cost less. Well D&D beyond's books are just as much as say on amazon, if not slightly cheaper on amazon (not counting delivery, though you might have zero shipping/handling cost depending). I find that to be BS. Boy I sure would like to build some Xanathar's stuff on the character builder, but boy howdy does spending 30 dollars for something I can't even hold feel awful, I'm essentially just paying for text that they can make infinitely. I'll give you 15-20 bucks tops.

I GLADLY took part of the whole weird sale back a few months ago when you could use cheap stuff to make the more expensive (Volo's) stuff cheaper, I still spent about 20 something dollars, and that's how much I felt it to be worth for digital media that you read. And it's still the only money I have s

CMV: I believe that basic financial skills such as book keeping and introductory accounting should be taught in high school.

My belief is that basic financial skills should be a requirement in high school. As I went through high school, then college, I realized that many people, including me, did not have a proper understanding of how to balance our personal budgets. Going through my accounting major, I believe that many of the basic skills that I learned in my first intro accounting class would benefit many young adults who are just entering the real world, and that these classes would be just as beneficial if not more so than classes such as history or social studies. My reasoning for this is that everyone who lives in society has to balance a budget, from the lowest level workers all the way up to the c-suite executives. These skills could also help students to look at their post school prospective student with a keener eye, such as balancing their chosen major and the school they want to go to relative to the cost and future benefit those majors would bring in their careers. And if they don’t choose

This pandemic is honestly surreal, and we probably won't fully realize it until it's in the history books.

I think about this all the time.

I mean we've all seen all this stuff in movies and video games; a virus outbreak, killing thousands, causing unemployment and the rest of it. I go to my local stores to get groceries and everyone is standing 6 feet apart, wearing masks, and disposable gloves. Just like in a movie, every headlines news contains the latest statistics and updates on the virus and how to combat it. Most people have been in their homes for months on end, yet we were kind of instantly accustomed to it. And there's the usual jackasses from the movies as well, denying existence of the virus and roaming about as nothing is afoot.

I don't know, I feel like this is something extremely huge yet most of us probably haven't even thought of it twice. Thank you if you've stuck till the end of my rambling.

What's one classic or an otherwise extremely popular book you've read that you didn't like?

For me, personally, it was American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I've read a few other of his books and I loved all of them. There was just something about this book, it took me over 2 months to finish, which is the most I've ever taken to finish a book.

Comment your all time favorite book and I’ll make a list and read them one by one.

Edit: The amount of suggestions I’ve gotten here is absolutely insane. I posted this same post on another sub and got a crazy amount there too so I’m quite overwhelmed!

A lot of people are asking for me to post the list when I have it done which I will definitely do if I can figure out how. It might take me a while because I have so many responses.

I purposely didn’t request a specific genre because I wanted a range of topics and you didn’t disappoint.

Thanks to everyone who commented!
