You just spoke my thoughts almost precisely. I love how I disappear into a book and that world just surrounds me. If someone talks to me I kinda blink a few times to pull myself out of it. And no matter how wonderful your own life is, it's just so amazing to live in other people sometimes. I go back to old books I've read and it's like catching up with old friends.

And I often stop the book before the end. I imagine the three of them all move to a remote island and open a gay bar. Is that wrong? ;) But then I also often don't watch the last bit of Moulin Rouge. God I'm such a woman. Heh.

A few weeks ago, I actually used the phrase "I miss Jim. I need to read that book again." I am still getting picked on for that one. Glad to see you understand it at least.

I did that once. I put the book down in the middle of the garden party scene. Jim had just said that he hoped Doyler would kiss him... and I just decided to let it end there. I think this was last October, so I had probably read the book at least 6 times already. I just wastn't in the mood for the heartbreaking parts. So, I don't think it's wrong at all, dear. :)

Love and Bows,
Jo
