i love to read. i will read anything. i have found that sosme books i get so caught up in i will sit and read for hours and forget the time and oops its time for dinner and nothing is cooked. lol when i was reading harry potter i got lost in it. the client was another i got lost in. there are so many. do you find that when you are reading you see like a movie playing in your head? does someone have to yell at you to get your attention back?

I frequently get lost in books, sometimes staying up all night because I can't put a book down. A good book is better than a good movie I think. It's more satisfying and the escape is better.

I only get caught up in a book when I get to the final chapters. I find I just can't put it down and then I find I'm up half the night because I really want to find out how it ends... and well, just so many pages to go, might as well not stop now. I wish I could find time to sit and read for three hours!

Yeah I do this a lot. I've on occasion finished a book in one sitting and realized I have nothing to read now. As for getting my attention no people don't usually have to yell at me. I'm blessed with being able to pay attention to more than one thing at once. At least as far as reading one thing and listening to something else. ;)
