This is absolutely me.
I could be completely engrossed in a book and still stop when it "feels" as if we're nearing the end just to make sure about how much time I have left.
Then the anxiety builds up, especially if I feel like we need way more time to tie up loose ends and the amount of pages left doesn't seem nearly enough.
Or, the sadness starts to set in. If I love the book, I find myself slowing down...trying to prolong the inevitable and get into the right frame of mind to say goodbye.
And that "mental preparation" has so many layers and I have so many questions. Will there be a cliffhanger? Is there a next book? Should I go ahead and get that next book? What other books by this author should I get?
It's always tough as we near the finish line but having a blog has made it a little easier. Now, I get to put my thoughts and feelings down and enjoy a good book just a little bit longer.
Does this sound like you?
