Tearjerkers @ Books on the Nightstand

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ve been writing up guest posts for a couple of my favorite blogs.  Over at Books on the Nightstand, I’ve got a post this week about the power of books to bring us to tears.  An excerpt;

Books, even more than movies and music, seem to have the ability to drive us to tears.  I’m not sure what it is about the medium, exactly.  Maybe it’s the fact that we become so engrossed in what we are reading, with images in our heads far more vivid than a movie.  Maybe it’s the speed at which we go through books, and scenes that go on for pages when they would have only lasted seconds in the real world.  Whatever it is, it seems there are very few people that haven’t cried at one or two books in their lifetime.
