    I don't know how long

    I wrote this sentence:
    " I was devouring this beauty for what I don't know how long."

    Is my sentence correct?

    If not please make necessary correction.

    Do you mean that you don't know/can't remember how long you were doing it for?

    If so, you can say "I was devouring this beauty for I don't know how long". Personally, I would probably pause in the sentence, almost as if I were trying to remember how long:

    "I was looking at it for ... hmmmm, I don't know how long!"

    Yes, it is right. I don't know how long I was looking at it.

    Please answer my previous thread.
