I love the feeling when I'm gripped by a story and keep telling myself "I really should stop now." Reluctantly I come to the end of a chapter, and slip a bookmark between the pages. With the characters and story suspended in my head, I return to reality.
When I open the book again and go back to the world that was left on pause, as each page is turned, once again I'm hooked. I may have to bookmark a few more times before reaching the last page. And another good story comes to an end .
Reading fiction, truly is a way of escaping to another world.
