I'm about halfway through The Road and absolutely do not want to know what happens and at the same time cannot wait to keep reading. I've made it through about 200 pages in the last 24 hours, which is pretty amazing because I'm reading without neglecting Harry or work. I did, however, make it through the entire day without doing a scrap of housework, but that isn't necessarily out of the ordinary anyway.
This made me think of the handful of books that have had this effect on me in the past: Night by Elie Wiesel, the diary of Anne Frank, The Time Traveler's Wife, and The Historian. I'm also going to add Outlander to this list knowing very well that I may be mocked for doing so. Oh! And Bel Canto.
So, Dedicated Reader (Readers? Nah!), what are the books from which you could not tear yourself?
