Interacting with Books

I have to wake up early tomorrow, but I just need to post about this or else I'd forget.

While reading, you find yourselves sometimes so interested in the book you're reading that you hardly notice what's happening around you, or what people are saying and such. I interact with what I read, I laugh out loud, giggle and show my emotions while reading. That's not what I wanna say though...

I was just reading Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories, and I came upon this line just now:
"Thank you," said Holmes, shutting his eyes; "pray go on." Page 707

I also tried to imitate what Holmes did, I shut my eyes and imagined myself saying "pray go on." This happens quite often with me while reading. Shrugging my shoulders, covering my mouth with my hand in shock, raising an eyebrow, nodding, shaking my head, etc. It's a curious thing when you catch yourself in the act. Trying to do what one of the characters did, or how they reacted. I just love it! I think it's quite fun to do so...

I'll continue reading, hope everyone's doing great!!

Aww awesome, Noory, that means you're living in the moment, mimicking what the characters do and all. I used to that too, I SO need to catch up on my readings!

Btw I saw you tagged me, thank you! :D I'll reply to it once I'm actually reading a book (The Second Sex doesn't count as I seldom read it!) So.. in about 3 months? Haha!
