I've been reading the same book now for nearly 5 weeks. It's "The Gum Thief" by Douglas Coupland. I've enjoyed it a lot so far and I look forward to reading it. So, what's the problem? Why can't I dive in and finish this 275 page book?

Remember in "When Harry Met Sally.." when Harry explains that he always flips to the last page in a book so he'll know what happens just in case he croaks before he reaches the end? I'm the exact opposite. I take forever because I don't want it to end. No, I don't think I'll drop dead as soon as I finish a book. I just don't want the enjoyable experience of reading something I actually like to end so fast. That would explain the books in this case that have bookmarks still at the 75% or 80% point. It's shameful actually.
