And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Emotional Books.

I've cried to The Secret Garden, The Alchemist,  Oscar Wilde's short stories-the nightingale and the rose and the fisherman who sold his soul.  I always end up crying when a character goes through something really stressful:  a death, shows how deep their love is,  or makes a sacrifice of some sort. Oh yes! and i must say i cried my eyes out after i read Anne Frank.  :smileysad: :smileyhappy:

Re: Emotional Books.

Hee hee. Yes! I cried during Chinese Cimderella (when she gets slapped in front of her friends) and so many others, I can't count. I especially hate it when you're with a bunch of people, and you break out in front of them...

Re: Emotional Books.

My friends have grown accustom to my bouts of emotional behavior when reading! I might just start laughing uncontrollably or crying inconsolably or I might become confused and start asking random questions and then get upset that they cannot give me answering a bit ridiculous really but i cannot help myself! :smileyhappy:

Re: Emotional Books.

Yes!!!! I don't really like reading while others are around because when I react to something in my book like laughing or crying I hold back because they make me feel stupid. There have been so many times that I was reading in class and something happens that makes be want to laugh/ cry and I sit in my desk trying so hard to control myself.... then i notice the guy next to my staring at me like I'm on drugs. lol :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Emotional Books.

I am always emotional when it comes to books but usually I can control myself. Like at the diary of ann frank I was in the middle of class so i managed to silently shed a few tears.

Re: Emotional Books.

When Eclipse came out, I skipped an entire day of homework so I could read it. At one point, I got so disgusted because I knew I needed to do homework but I couldnt put the book down. I literally got mad at the book for being so good and I threw it halfway across the room in my anger. That was my emotional turning point for the Twilight series. I'm not a person who likes suspense, which is why I dont mind spoilers. Its killing me now because I dont have money for Breaking Dawn, and my fiance owns the book. So we're reading it together but its going slow because we dont live together and it all depends on what nights we get together to read. So being very difficult yes. But I have a tendency to laugh a lot more than cry in the books.

Re: Emotional Books.

Twilight, I didn't cry during. New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn, yes. Also with: The Sweet Far Thing, A Walk to Remember, Angel of Mercy (and Angel of Hope), and at the end of some of Jodi Picoult's books.

 

They are all awesome, though. So I read them again, and cry again. And the cycle repeats  :smileyhappy:
