When I Finish A Good Book…

When I finish a reading a good book, I don’t want to…

…Talk about it, talk about anything, say anything.

…Move on to the next activity.

…Answer questions about the book.

…Start reading something else.

…Go write a review or blog post.


When I finish reading a good book, I want to…

…Sit in a quiet room, without interruptions, and think.

…Feel the emotions, bitter or sweet, and let them be.

…Listen to theย closing line echo in my mind.

…Thank the author, even though they’ll never hear me, for impacting my life through their story.


Because a good book doesn’t end on the last page.

      1. Oh well, then take this suggestion from me. If you ever happen to read his books, start off with either ‘Looking for Alaska’ or ‘Paper Towns’. Don’t start with ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ because it’s a little overrated. Happy reading ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I can think of several books that are like this but mainly On the Back of the North Wind. That book is …amazing. Move on to the next activity ( unless it’s coffee. Coffee’s an activity right? )
