How long is too long?

Via Normblog, this from Jean Hannah Edelstein on the Guardian's Books Blog.

I'd say that the inverse is true, and that while a bad book will appear too long, a good one is always too short. All too often I have an increasing desire to read slower, to stop the thickness of the unread portion of the book from shrinking quite so rapidly, to sustain the pleasure that bit longer.
