You remember, back in May, we had a post about The Longest Novel Ever? Here’s another one to add to the list: George R.R. Martin’s A Dance With Dragons, the fifth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, clocking in at 1040 pages. It comes out today, which means that theoretically someone could’ve gotten it at midnight and started reading at 12:01am, which means they should be done with it—hm, at a fast pace of 60 pages an hour, that would still mean it’d be 17+ hours from start to finish.
Plus that’s a fast reader, with no bathroom breaks, no food, no time to look up that random person whose name and importance you’d totally forgotten.
Are you currently devouring A Dance With Dragons? What’s the last book you stayed up all night for?
