You know you love a book when you:

  • feel all the same emotions even when you read it the ‘n’th time.
  • stop after each line, re-read it and think about it for hours hence.
  • want to stop and make notes in your scrapbook frequently.
  • keep quoting lines from the book.
  • discuss it non-stop with your friends and family.
  • tell the story to your children and grandchildren.
  • forgo your favorite TV program to read it.
  • keep on reading at dinner time despite being hungry.
  • keep reading it long after your usual bedtime.
  • rush and buy your own copy as soon as you return your library copy.
