Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by Deb about mostly books and reading. This weeks question is
How much do you visualize when you read? Do you imagine faces for the characters? Can you see the locations in your mind’s eye? Or do you just plunge ahead with the story, letting the imagery fall to the wayside?
I am a very visual reader, but I don’t seem to imagine faces for characters just body shapes. I sort of have this stock standard way for visualising things though, even if they are contrary to the authors descriptions. Such as the main characters bedroom, or their kitchen, are always the same. Great literary descriptions always draw me in and keep me reading, especially if they are done in such a way that it seems like a movie is playing. I think without the imagery your missing out on a key component that helps you to truly enjoy the book.
