Booking Through Thursday: Night Owl?

Booking ThroughThursday
Question:
What’s the latest you’ve ever stayed up reading a book? Is staying up late reading a usual thing for you?

The latest I ever stayed up reading? 4 am. But I was a lot younger and not working full time then. Once in a while I'll find myself reading until 1 am now, but I try to make that on a weekend.

One story on this topic: About two months after we were married, my husband headed to bed at, say 10 pm, and asked me if I was coming too. I told him that I'd just be a minute..."I'm just at the good part." Next thing I knew it was 2 am. He's never let me forget that.

hmmm...should or can I ask...Did he give up on waiting? lol

I remember those days, or should I say, nights when I could also read until the wee hours. But you said the key word "younger".

@CMash: Yep, he gave up. He asked me the next morning how late I was up. I didn't want to tell him...but I don't like to lie.....

I am retired so if I choose to stay up and read into the wee small hours of the morning I can, but I try to go to bed at 11 o'clock each night, then if I can't fall asleep I get up and read for an hour or two.

Thanks for your visit today.

Being an adult and working late does get in the way of fun, doesn't it?

I used to be able to stay up late and read, but not anymore. I tend to fall asleep when I'm reading or not remember what I'm reading.
