I literally blush and sheepishly smile when a character does something embarrassing. I feel their embarrassment. So that forces me to also close the book and blush. And blush. Till my red cheeks turn back to normal!
Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a books around for those inevitable dead spots in life ---Stephen King
I completely agree with this, but when Im reading a book series and I get to the next one I absolutely refuse to read the back cover to make sure I dont read any spoilers no matter how small they might be. Get any book for 99 cents.
