i'm not a very fast reader but i think she could do it my friend did it. she got the book at midnight she didn't read it until later on that night. and she told me who died when we were at church the next day. don't worry i told her to tell me.^_^

well, i suppose it is possible, but how can she enjoy it as much, i find when you read something that quickly you always miss a good bit or don't get something (or maybe that's just me?!! lol).

do you realize you would have to read seriously fast? 7x60=420!! there are 870 pages in that book! you would have to read faster than two pages a minoute without stopping to drink your complamentory soda! no sorry I would have to go against your friend on this one! let me know if she does it though! that would be unbeleivably cool!

It took me unusally long to read that book. I read Goblet of Fire in three days, and it took me like, a week to read that one, but that's cause I was busy.

LOL I've read it a couple times already. I'm not bragging or anything cause it's the truth, but I'm an incredibly fast reader. I'm not talking about speed reading but I've always been above normal in reading and writing. I find writing incredibly dull but all of my teachers are pushing me to do it. Meh...but if I could do only one thing for the rest of my life I would read!

7 hours? I can usually get through an 800 page book within a week. I don't know how many hours that is.
I can do maybe 200-300 pages in 7 hours.
I think.

I am a fast reader I always thought and it took me 4 days to read the 5th book thats reading for about 5 to 6 hours a day. Its a long book. i just don't see how you could enjoy it in such a short time. I mastered speed reading in High School for things I didn't want to read, which meant I skiped anything remotely slow in the book and only absored enough to write the report not something I would recommend for a good book.

Im really glad that my fellow Palinites agreed with me on this one,as my wife pointed out to me how on earth could our friend Alys really enjoy the book while reading so fast,if she can do it that would really be a great achievement.Maybe she is a Wizard..David...
