Does reading a book effect you outside

a book? I haven't read any lately but in the past I have been so emotional about a book that it's made me sad or worried in my regular world. I wish I could remember the books that made me feel that way. And, I'd rather have one that made me happy! LOL


Has this ever happened to you?

Oh yes....that happens all the time....A lot depends on what is happening in my life as I am reading a particutlar story...Right now have some things going on and so just cannot deal with a 'heavy' book....Don't need deep or sad or emotional right now...so have been choosing cozy mysteries with a big dose of romance....just light and fluffy.....Hugs, Ruth

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I remember reading a book years ago that made me so depressed. And, then... I picked it up and read it AGAIN! This is the book I wish I could remember so I didn't read it again. LOL


I hope things get better for you, Ruth!


Hugs,

That's so cool that you can rouse yourself from a dream. I very rarely remember my dreams but if I do, I can't rouse myself from it. (I have tried to fall back asleep and continued the dream if it was good though! LOL) In high school, I had a friend who could make himself fly or do cool things in his dream if he realized he was dreaming.
