The other day after work, I was reading a book. After a while, I realized I needed to eat something. So I went to the kitchen to make myself some bacon and eggs but I really didn't want to stop reading, not even for fifteen minutes. So I put my Kindle on the counter and read while I cooked. I knew it was a stupid thing to do -- I was grating cheese and turning bacon and not looking at what I was doing and I could have spilled food on the Kindle or hurt myself. But I just had to keep reading, so I did.

It felt so good, not just to read, but to be so compelled to read. And I thought, as I was scrambling the eggs: This is the feeling of my happy childhood.


ETA: I think the book I was reading was Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Like everyone else said already, what was the book? XDD

Anyhow, I completely understand how you feel, before internet I really loved reading, I even recorded my impressions about what I read in a special notebook. And I drew illustrations there too. Lol, I was a complete nerd XDD But I miss those days sometimes...

I think it was Unwind by Neal Shusterman.

Do you still have the notebook? That was an awesome habit.

I've never stopped reading but I've read a lot more since I got my Kindle -- so much more convenient!

Never heard of it, but if it's so interesting, I have to investigate XD

I left it back home when I moved, but I suppose it's somewhere at my mother's place still. It was kind of fun, I remember I had like 5 page essays about some particularly though-provoking books XD

That's really great! I don't remember when I last read a proper book :( Maybe I should get me an e-book reader too...
