It was a warm autumn day, so I took my book and my wheelchair and went out to the courtyard to sit in the sun and read. I was so wrapped up in the incredible storyline, that I didn't hear my friends and neighbors chatting. Eventually two of them came over and touched my arm to get my attention. I startled and looked up at them through red, tearful eyes. They were asking what they could do to help me, but I just continued to sniffle, told them I was fine and then wheeled myself back into my apartment. I closed my door and busted out laughing! I had just left all those people outside worrying about me...not knowing that I was sobbing over characters in a book! And no, I wasn't going to admit it!
Not my usual genre, but I loved this book!
