Default Stopping point?

Assuming you don't have to stop reading for an emergency, at what point do you prefer to put your book down?

I like to stop at the end of a chapter or if there's a break point on the page.

Voted other (before I fall asleep) but usually end of chapter. If it's one of those I can't put down, end of book.

I have to stop at the end of a chapter. I'll be running out the door carrying my book finishing up a chapter just because I can't stop any other place.

I just stop whenever then pick up from where I left off. Often I wont even mark the page, I just tend to remember it.

If it is a very good book, I wont stop until it is finished- I have read through many a night lol

I usually read at night after my son goes to bed and I try to stop at the end of a chapter or a break in the page but sometimes I just stop when I can't keep my eyes open anymore, lol

I usually stop at the end of a paragraph, sometimes if the end of a chapter is close I'll try to make it to the end of the chapter.

Wherever. I read the most while at work, so I actually do have to stop for emergencies.

I try to stop at the end of a chapter. I mostly read before bed and read one chapter per night. It gives me something to look forward to and makes a good book last longer.
