  1. So yesterday evening I read quite a bit in the book I'm currently reading (Trudi Canavan - The Black Magician Trilogy 3: The High Lord), and I didn't want to stop reading. Unfortunately at some point it was time for bed and I was pretty sleepy. I was also at a good point in the story to stop. So I went to bed but kept thinking about the book and what's going to happen next. I think most of us have been there, when you're reading a good book and you want to keep on reading it until it's finished to find out what happens (or what has happened in some cases). This doesn't happen to me with every book, some are more gripping than others, and even when it doesn't happen as much it doesn't mean I'm not enjoying the book (for example, I find that usually with information books I don't feel as big a pull to read on as I do with a good fiction book). Personally, this happens to me with some books, but because I get quite sleepy in the evening it doesn't happen often that I go to bed very late because of a book. But I have put off other things / tasks before (such as cooking for example) because I wanted to finish my book. If a book is epic or gripping or just really good, it tends to linger in my mind for a while and I think about it (process it). Well, I just wanted to share the experience and ask how it works for you.
