I observed you in your concentration  
Fingers following spines lips murmuring titles
Before making your selection (or two... or three…)
And then  with paper treasures in hand
You folded like living origami
Curling down and in on yourself
Into your favoured chair  for hours
Hot tea slowly growing colder  
With the world beyond the front and back covers
No longer existing.

oh yes. I know that feeling very well. Its so sad when you finish reading a really good book because even if you read it again it will never be like the first time you read it.

i find the same delight in reading an old favourite as i do in reading something new, i can always loose myself in a book, i think books and art are two big loves in my life

Its so easy to become totally engrossed in a good book. My mum always said the house could have burnt down around me and I'd never have noticed.

:giggle: my mom says a similar thing about me, her current quip is along the lines of 'Gem you won't have a shelf of books in your house you will end up with a shelf of kindles you read so much!' :giggle:

I do this all the time. I can't really afford as many books anymore. I have a kindle but I still buy my favourite titles :) I miss the smell of pages.

:giggle: i find junk shops are a wonderful place - thats how i get away with buying as many books as i do :giggle: - the only books i really buy 'new' are ones from certain authors that are my favourites but thats like only once a year :giggle:
