When we remember the exact place where we read a specific page on a book

(This post has a question for you about books… Just keep reading…)

Well, I’m finishing reading Wilt, which is a wonderful novel (but be prepared to be somewhat offended).

I usually don’t laugh out loud when reading…

(Oh god this must be the first time in ages someone writes “laugh out loud” in full…)

We’ll, I really don’t know why. I have this mental block or emotional block or whatever.

However, Wilt makes me laugh a lot. This makes me remember the last time I laughed so hard by reading a book.

It was around 12 years ago, when I was in my hometown, with my parents, in a cafĂ©. I remember both scenes exactly: my parents’ faces when they say their normally stone-faced reading son laughing out like a madman and the scene I was reading. I remember the exact page.

In fact, I have the book here. This was the page:

The book was Changing Places, by David Lodge. It seems I laugh only when reading campus novels…

Now, I ask: do you also remember exact spots you were when reading a specific page?
