One way I know I am reading a good book is when I get so lost in its pages that I forget where I am and laugh at the funny bits aloud. Yes, I know it can make people think you’re crazy but that’s how good some writers really are – they can make you feel like you are in the scene, better than any movie I’ve ever seen.
That’s what happened to me today as I was having a quiet moment over coffee with my LP today. I was so caught up in the breakfast scene in Judith Mcnaught‘s Almost Heaven that he looked up from his game and asked me about the scene. I don’t think he’ll read my historical romances but he did like that I was laughing.
I’m done with that book and off to the next in the series.
