I like this quote from @DFJones :)

This is how I feel when I read. What about you?

What a great quote! I feel the same way, although sometimes when I'm reading a particularly sad or scary book I'm glad that I can return to my own boring life when I'm done! :lol:
Especially something like The Hunger Games... I would not have survived the Hunger Games, lol.

That is why I started reading, to have a little escape from reality. I love this quote.

Yeah, except some trips don't last nearly long enoughImage
But thankfully some last long after the last page is turned, and the book is back on its shelf.

Those are the best!Image

It reminds me of the Blind Melon song "No Rain" - "And all I can do is read a book to stay awake/And it rips my life away but it's a great escape." The ending of this book (Ruby's Choice) shouldn't have surprised me, but it kind of did.
