Grant | 25 comments I was telling someone about the book I am
Reading and how it is affecting me and what was happening in the book, and they said "that book is getting too into you". Well i thought that's what reading is about.... to get, and be involved and be like experiencing the story..... I wonder I Thu happens to anyone else as You are telling someone about books you are reading.......ahhhhh I just love to read...

Reaghan | 52 comments Yes, that always happens to me!


message 3: by Sofia (new)

Sofia Yep that always happens to me too. That's exactly what the point of reading is. One day a person came up to me and asked what the point of reading was... *facepalm Honestly I feel really sorry for people who don't enjoy reading because they're missing out on so much.

Patricia Hargraves | 94 comments Yes, pretty much everyone in my family since the time I was a little kid has been so "condescendingly understanding" of my little book reading hobby.

DENISA HOWE | 115 comments I am bad to let the characters live on a little while longer in my mind...

Jill (socalreaderjill) | 2 comments Sometimes I will be talking to someone about this awesome "movie" I saw a while back but keep blanking on the name....and then it hits me, it was a really awesome book I once read, not a movie at all. The person looks at me like: oh.... Their loss for not wanting to experience reading like it should be experienced! haha

Bread (etchmaymay) | 30 comments Yes! When I read I get into the story, time flies by and it's like I've been transported into the world in which the characters are. You feel their pain and you feel their happiness! I never understood how someone could hate reading when I've always loved it!

Jacklyn (jackie-lynn) | 6 comments when I read its always played out in my mind... If that mmkes sense.. I also get attached to characters, especially in a series of books.. It takes me a while to get back to the real world once I stop...

Oh this is what happens with me. What happens in a book that I read, kinda lives and affects me, Its kinda nice that it is like this, I seem to experience a book so much more. And so often something happens in life with someone and I find myself telling people oh this book I am reading says.......

That captures it perfectly Michael, it's like reading gives such a clue into things..... I say don't these people know what is happening..... I get all these ideas and emotions and I try to share or convey them..... And they just aren't there...... sheesh....

Erin Whenever anyone says to me, "Oh, I don't read," I instantly think, "There's something wrong with you!"

I wish I could convince non-readers what they are missing in their life. But they must be missing the imagination part of their brain - poor them.

Michael (lovechild) | 280 comments And some of these non readers are friends and family. To this day I go home to visit the folks for the Holiday and my dad comments, "why are you always reading" I glance over the book and grimace at him(always doing it with love though cus I love the guy.) and then go back to reading. =P


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

I get so involved in my book sometimes I forget that it's not real and then it always bums me out because I love immersing myself in the characters and their lives. I usually spend a few days away from a book in mourning when my favorite character dies and I get sad when I finish a book especially if it was a favorite. Sometimes I read one of my favorite series and when I finish the last book I start the series over again just so that the story wont end.


message 20: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer | 32 comments Yep! Lol. Guilty of doing the same thing. I really wish some of the characters existed sometimes.


message 21: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (missie322) I was telling my sister the other day how I was opening weeping while reading Me Before You. She just gave me a weird face and said, "why would you want to read something that makes you cry?" WHAT?!?!
