A Book Hangover is the inability to start a new book because you're still living in the last book's world.
I saw this definition of a book hangover on Facebook the other day and just smiled with agreement.
It's so true. Many times I finish one book and have three others on my shelf ready to read. However, I am still thinking about the book I just finished and just can't get interested in starting a new book. I am still wondering what happened to the characters and whether or not they married, died, or whatever.
I wonder if the author wrote any more books just like this one, or hopefully the author writes a sequel to continue the character's lives just a little longer. Reading a great book is like spending good quality time with a friend and hating to say goodbye.
Having a book hangover happens to me a least once a week these days. I really enjoy reading the inspirational fiction that MCPL has in regular print, large print, audiobooks, and eBooks. So stay home this weekend, curl up with a good book, and get a book hangover. It's probably cheaper than the other kind and you won't need an aspirin.
