Whenever I get properly engaged in a book, I sometimes forget that I am reading. Sometimes, it feels like sleeping, and dreaming a vivid dream that will disappear when I wake up. In a way, this is true. Picking up a book is like closing your eyes, reading the words is the dream that you will only awaken from when you close the book. It really is like dreaming with your eyes open. Reading is sometimes the only way you can feel fully engaged with your dreams, and you can choose the story within your dream, by reading about it first, and selecting the one that sounds the most appealing. I like being able to do this, but sometimes I like it when there are unexpected twists and turns, it just makes the dream that little bit more interesting!
What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree that reading has a similar sensation to dreaming? Do you think that it depends on the type of book you are reading? Let me know what you think in the comments!
