Nell | 432 comments Some of the books on the One Day Best Summer Reads list are over 400 pages long! According to the comments, the list was part of a movie promotion when the book, One Day, was made into a movie. The books are listed because they are good summer reads, not because you can read them in a day.

Thanks for clarifying that. I used it because it was the largest list of romance novels, not because you could read them in one day.
