You know you love a book when you:
- read it so many times that you know each sentence as though you wrote it.
- 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.
- feel sad that the character on the cover does not have the face you imagined.
- start acting like one of the characters in the book.
- dream about the characters, events or the setting in it.
- wonder what happened to the characters after The End.
- wait for a sequel to the book or wish that it had a prequel.
- look forward to the film version with excitement.
- hate the film version because you feel it did injustice to the book.
- recommend it (and other books by the author) to all and sundry.
- stand in queues to meet the author.
- buy other books of the same author.
- Google the author’s name and read up everything about him/her.
