I can read an inch-thick book in one go. I don't time it but it doesn't take me too long. The Lost Symbol was a bit different though. With being so huge, I read it over two days.

I couldn't put that particular book down T. It raced along for the main part, and I found it really interesting as well as being a good bit of fiction.
