Fall Into a Good Book (And Miss Your Stop)

Black Dagger Brotherhood fans are well aware that Tohrment’s book, Lover Reborn, comes out March 27, 2012. Just last week, J.R. Ward turned the manuscript in to her editor, and has this to say on her Facebook page:

Tohr report: Okay, so he made my amazing editor miss her subway stop by FOUR stops (she ended up in a diff. part of NYC altogether) and caused her to cry- more than once.

What’s the oddest thing that’s happened/wrongest place you’ve ended up in because you’ve been so engrossed in a book?

I'll weigh in, but it's extra-nerdy: I was reading Charles Dickens's Great Expectations, and missed my subway stop by two stops.

I also listened to a record once, back when people had walkmen and cassette tapes, and the record made me cry on the subway, which was embarrassing (it was Mark Lanegan's The Winding Sheet).

I was reading "Daughter of the Forest" by Juliet Mariller a few years ago. I was in the middle and there was a lot going on in Sorcha's adventure and I was awaiting a shuttle from the airport to my hotel in Detroit. I didn't even see the shuttle stop about three feet from where I was sitting. The next shuttle arrived an hour later and I found that I had missed the one I was supposed to be on! When I read the sequel "Son of Shadows" and Sorcha died I cried and sobbed so much that when my husband arrived home later that evening he thought someone in the family had died. All I could get out between sobs was "she died!" He couldn't believe I was so hysterical over a book character.

i do audiobooks while driving - and not that long ago was very engaged in a scene in the book i was listening to (new YA offering) and missed my turn while traveling across state...
and ended up driving an extra 2 hours till i could get looped around to get back to where i was headed in the first place!
and the second worst part - i'm over 50 and admitting to being heavily engaged in YA offerings...
