The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.
How long have you stayed up to read a book?
(submitted by Julie @ JadeSky)
I stop reading by 10:00 pm every night before I go up to get ready for bed. We have to get up at 6am on weekdays, so we turn lights out at 11pm. Instead of reading between getting ready for bed and lights out, I watch Gilmore Girls on Netflix because I’ve seen each show a million and one times, so there’s no risk that I won’t want to turn it off at 11pm.
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, and then I read until my eyes can’t take it any more. That may be just 30 minutes or it may be until 5am, when I have to close the book so I can get a bit more shuteye before the alarm goes off, or it may be somewhere in between.
But I know I can’t trust myself to shut the book at a reasonable time every night, so not reading before bed is safer for me.
