effected by reading
are any of you effected by reading literature... example:

my english teacher laughs, crys, and screams when she reads a book... literaly, she cried in front of my class.

some people get "touched" or "englightened" by certain poetry.

I just dont get people like that, i cant connect to any literature and get "touched" by it unless it is a book that makes you think.

I would say that I at times am touched by literature. I cried when I read Les Mesarables. And Lonesome Dove. But I have read lots of books and that was the only times I showed emotion. it all comes down to self control.

you have to be able to put yourself inside the book. its easier to empathize with real people than just words. all you have to do though, is find a story that is in tune with your thought process.

it doesnt happen often, but ive gotten pretty emotional over a few books - Perks of Being a Walflower, Flowers for Algernon, and The Cardinal of the Kremlin all got to me in different ways.

Yes books and literature have an astounding effect on people especially when they can relate to what they are reading. Usually emotion comes to me when I can relate a past experience to what's happening to the author or protagonist.

I'm affected by books, but usually from real-life survival stories (which is what I mainly read).To be affected by a book, it must have some substantial meaning for the reader. As wyote said well, you have to put yourself into the book, and appreciate its meaning. Without meaning, most people lose interest, and hence don't express emotion.

Lonesome Dove, that was a good book. I have really felt a few books, oddly enought Ender's Game is one.

I have a friend who really gets into books, but he likes to smoke a little first, he says reading that way is like nothing he was normally able to do.

Smokeing a little before you read is a good way to enjoy a book. It helps with the imagination. Just don't smoke to much then you can't read.
