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 the 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.
