Last night, I finished the sequel of the book that I read, and I got carried away of the story. I was thinking about it for a long time last night before I went to bed. I got sad about the ending of the story. I wasn't like this before. I always read novel and I always don't think about it after I finished the book, unlike this one, I got to think about it. lol Are you like this also?

Hi! For this very reason i keep them aside and finish up the ones that are OK one more down! I have a list of select few authors and whenever their new offering comes out i buy it and keep it on my bedside table! Of course i try out others! In fact i start this marathon session where i try to go through them as quickly as possible and then i latch on to my favorite one! With this one i take my time! Relishing every sentence, every word! Visualizing the play in some cases! Its absolute fun when thats happening like the whole story is being played out just for your viewing!

Sounds like a very compelling novel. What is the title of the book?

That's okay. Sounds like a very interesting novel. I just might get that book myself.

The other night I got carried away, but it was not that I was reading an interesting book, but listening to the Dalai Lama on television! He was so interesting and I liked the fact that he seemed to have a sense of humor too! I learned that he only eats twice a day (breakfast and lunch) and by the time dinner comes around, then he has to go back to bed to think about things and meditate! I found him very inspiring indeed!

Ah this has happened to me more than once, where the ending just rather stuck with me, whether in a good way or a sad way or a happy way or whatever. To me, that is the mark of a well written book a lot of the time to have something stick with us. There are a lot of books that I sit down, finish them and just say, "well that was good" and just move on with my life. However, the really best books, the top of the heap, are the books that I will continue to rather read and get some kind of lasting impression. The type of books that really do make the characters come alive, it is almost like you are right there right in the books and it makes an impact. It really does make a lasting impression and that is a good thing, a very good thing.

I was like that also when I read the book of Pat Murphy, Wild Angel. At the beginning of the story I cried and I really feel sad for the character in it. Until I done reading it, it always goes on my mind and thinking if they made it into a movie it will be a top grosser lol. Til now, it was my fave novel and I never let my cousins borrowed it like it's my personal property. I took care of that book because I really love it. When I read it even so many times I always cried like I am putting myself as a character of that book.lol[b][/b][i][/i][u][/u]

It definately depends on the book....I have had a few that tugged at my heartstrings for a while after I finished reading them...recently I read one that I wish had continued on and not stopped where the book actually ended!

Before when I read books or novels, I always have the tendency to think about the book even after I have finished reading it. I sometimes even try to think of what possible endings would be good for that story. I don't know why, but it's just my thing after reading something.
