I like this quote from @DFJones :)

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

I like it too and feel the same! :)

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 enough

But thankfully some last long after the last page is turned, and the book is back on its shelf.

Those are the best!
