Yeah, I hear you there. The only exception to this being with certain authors who leave every chapter as a cliff-hanger. Tim Dorsey is a good example of this. I rarely finish a chapter with him where I don't immediately want to find out what's going on and go ahead and turn the page. Thankfully, he likes to jump around between characters a fair bit, so one chapter will end as a cliff-hanger and the next will pick up someone else in the storyline and I can feel ok about placing a bookmark and turning off the light.

I would agree and have reread my favorites 10s of times.

The only exception was a book on the 900+ day siege of Stalingrad, it was literally the daily dispatches. It was so dry I would fall asleep after 3-5 pages..


The gulag archipelago was a close 2nd

Just finished three audiobooks on the space program in the past month, dam good. I have six more lined up in Audible.
