One of my biggest booktalks was done when I was reading in the library.   The 
network was down - I had a group of students reading in the library, so I thought I 
would finish an  Alex Rider book -- the one about the clones.  Usually a book 
starts typing up loose ends by the last chapter, but I read
the very last sentence and couldn't tell if the good or bad guy survived.  My 
instinctive response was to yell "NO!", and I threw the book across the room!!  
Heads popped up, and then hands raised -- can I have that book next?  Can I?

However, I usually do not have time to get engrossed in a book like that -- will do 
some "spot" reading -- scanning.  I take my books home to read and generally fall 
asleep with one on my face!  Interesting thread!
