Some books are best read with plenty of time to breathe, while others seem to demand that we set aside our other paltry obligations (for things like "sleep" or "basic politeness") and focus all our attention until the very last page.

Tell us in the comments what book needs to be read all at once and who wrote it. Be sure to also tell us just what it is that makes it so hard to put down once you've started.
