26 Books in 2017 Book 17: Book You Can Read in a Day

Quality versus Quantity (2)

Book 17 in the 26-Books-in-52-Weeks Challenge has to be a book that can be read in a day. So a category in complete contrast to book 16 which had to be over 500 pages long.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a whole novel in a 24 hour period. This is probably due to the fact that I mainly read in bed at night, so no matter how gripping the story might be, the need to sleep wins out in the end.

There are some books for grown-ups that I have actually read in a day and they’re a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine and these are the LADYBIRD BOOKS FOR GROWN-UPS. 

My particular favourite is The Husband. It’s hilarious.
