If I like a book and am gripped from the onset, thats it, everything goes out of the window, DH dinner, DS tea, everything and I am still reading as I walk up the stairs literally......

For me it's the 2nd page, if I am gripped by then I will pretty much read the book.

I was reading this silly Richard & Judy reccommendation called 'ps. I love you' on the train today, just started it and it made my eyes water; so I will have to read it in's not a gripping book but I will still read it.

I used to find Jeffrey Archer books gripping, but utter rubbish. The story moved along quickly and I wanted to turn the page, but after I had finished the book I felt used / conned / almost unclean!
