Is your book 'unputdownable'?
Apparently, there are earlier examples, though in a slightly different sense, i.e., someone who can resist being 'put down' or 'taken down a peg or two'. However, the modern sense is of a book that's so good you can't stop reading it .
So what books have you read lately that are absolutely 'unputdownable'?
