Just a Few More Pages.....

How true is this?  If I have a good book, I get sucked into a readers time warp.  I'll read until I'm certain twenty minutes have passed, only to see the clock and realize I've been reading for well over an hour.  I don't know where the time goes, but that's the power of a really good book, isn't it.

This almost always happens to me right before I go to bed.  It will be 10:30 and I'll think, ''Oh it's early still.  I'll just read for a few minutes and call it a night."    Then I'll look up at midnight and wonder why I'm still awake.  I love sleep.  Why have I delayed sleeping?  But it's that age old question, "What's going to happen to my character next?"  That's what I love about clever writing.  I love not knowing exactly what's going to happen next, but dying to find out.

I'm currently reading "One Day" as I mentioned in yesterdays post.  I'm always on the hunt for a great book that makes me want to stay up late and find out what happens next.   I love recommendations!  Gimme all you got!


  1. currently plowing through "World War Z," check it out....soooooooooo good:


    incidentally Brad Pitt is making a movie out of the book but the filmmaking is going poorly:


  2. btw totally agree about the "just a few pages" phenomenon...it's plagued me my whole life

  3. I'm reading vampire academy, it's incredible so far

  4. This happens to me all the time... though I admit I read to escape :)I don't even try to psyche myself into believing it will only be a few pages anymore... if It's good I could easily read a whole book in one sitting.

    The last books I read were the Fifty Shades series and I read the latest installment of Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series and Charlaine Harris' latest in the Sookie Stackhouse series... I've been at a loss for something good to read ever since!

  5. A Song of Ice and Fire (A Game of Thrones, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, A Dance with Dragons). Promise it'll be the fastest 3,000+ pages you've ever read, and you'll be dying for the next book (which, incidentally, was suposed to be out by now).

  6. Wow! she's beautiful no matter what you do ...try it with her with robert it's looks cool i'm sure...

    Anastasia Steele has finally responded to rumors that he's a favorite to play this role
