I'm a pretty emotional reader.
So when I'm reading say... Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and burst into tears on the bus
I often get treated to... this

Does this ever happen to you? I seem to pick THE WORST books/moments to read about on public transport (which I only take a couple of times a week at most) because it always seems to happen to me. Maybe it's my destiny to entertain people with my embarrassing sob fests? ;) It's just so awkward though when the very sweet person next to you looks both confused and terrified and I have to try to assure them through thoughts of 'NO, he can't be dead!' that I'm fine really, it's just the book. That only ever seems to work with other readers....
But hey, let's not forget the insane laughter!

So, this is me and David Tenant makes the best for the best gifs ever.
Normally (and most notably) it's my family that has to deal with my crazy laughter during long car rides when I'm reading a novel. I think this is most annoying for them because they don't know what I'm laughing at and on the rare day that I share the joke, they do not find it funny. At all. So they have to suffer through my (totally obnoxious) laughter all the time. I feel for them.
I talk. And talk. And talk...
Okay, so not even looking at the way that I shut everyone out when I read, I have this tendency to RANT. My family and some friends tell me all the time that sometimes when I start on a huge monologue, breathing seems to become unnecessary and I just don't shut up or allow for pauses until I'm done. Most of the time this happens when I'm annoyed about something (as in ranting about... I don't know, water privatization) but when I get started on books? GOOD LUCK.
I AM THE THING THAT WOULDN'T SHUT UP.
And there we are! Do you have any stories of things you do while reading and travelling? I would loooove to hear them!
