I was definitely the kid that got in trouble reading past my bedtime. Not that I got "in trouble" but I often read after my bedtime for sure. Remembering reading with a flashlight in our trailer house.
That moment when you finish a book, look around, and realize that everyone is just carrying on with their lives . as though you didn't just experience emotional trauma at the hands of a paperback. Thank you, for finally summing up my life so me !
