The highest praise for a book?

This comes when, after you finish a book, you are still so wrapped up in it that you can't bring yourself to pick up another one and leave behind the mental and emotional world from the previous book.  Natasha claims that reading A Happy Marriage has paralyzed her.  Here's hoping that I get my reading wife back; in the meantime I still have my wife.

My girl friend has an interesting practice. if she really likes a book, she immediatly re-reads it upon finishing. I have started doing it a couple of times recently, it is quite neat.

Or where the only greater joy than reading that book is to realize that the author wrote several more, and that you’ve only started on the joy.
