Binging Is Good for Learning
Students who binge-learn do better than those who don't.  In addition to the reasons listed, when you consume mass quantities of data in a short time, your retention is better while reading the later chapters so you're more likely to draw connections than if you read it later and had forgotten some of the earlier stuff.

Also, this isn't new.  It's just easier now.  If I want to chug a subject I can just get online and read until my vision blurs.  I don't have to deal with a librarian saying there's a 3-book limit per subject or a 12-book limit per week.  I've always had a tendency to inhale whole topics.  How else am I supposed to load a database?
