Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.
― Stephen King
A successful novel should interrupt the reader’s life, make him or her miss appointments, skip meals, forget to walk the dog.
– Stephen King
I like this quote, because a good book really should cause you to forget any tasks and focus fully on the book that has grabbed your attention. I’ve read late into the night as I tell myself one more chapter which quickly turns into finishing the book at two in the morning. What book held your attention so greatly that you forgot any tasks or appointments?
