I have been known to stop reading two chapters before the book ends. I’ll just put the book down and not pick it up for days.
I do that because I have loved being a part of that world, I love the characters, the setting, the story. And I don’t want it to end. Once I’ve read the last page, it is over. I can never again go back and be in that world in the same way and so I don’t want to leave. Reading the last chapter, reaching the last page makes me feel like I have said goodbye to a dear friend and I’ll do almost anything to prolong the ending.
What quirky reading habits do you have when reading a great book?
