Every time I start listening to Harry Potter (because it is much more comfortable for me to listen to it then read it) I get almost lost in it. I start by listening a little the first evening. Then I continue by listening at lunch and every break I get. By the third day I listen to it all the time, while absently going around the house and trying to function as usual. Needless to say it makes Paul angry but I guess he got used to it by now. It takes a long time to listen to all the Harry Potter books and I can’t even remember how many times I’ve been through this ‘procedure’. It invariably leaves me with a feeling of emptiness when I get to the end of the story once again… And still one can only wish for more books able to exert such a feeling.
Right now I am at the 6th book, Swedish version. Feeling immersed.
