I have an strange idiosyncracy - almost a neurosis perhaps. Sometimes it bothers me, but I can't seem to do anything about it. I was wondering if anybody else suffers from this complex. Whenever I turn the page of a book, I find I have to check the page numbers to make sure I'm actually seeing the very next page, and that two pages haven't stuck together. This started years ago, when in fact 2 pages DID stick together and what I was reading made no sense, since it continued from the previous page, which I did not see. Of course, I checked that immediately and rectified the situation by separating the stuck pages and going back one. Ever since then, I check. If I forget to check, I might get a quarter of the way down the page and then I remember I haven't checked (even if what I'm reading makes perfect sense, which of course, it ususally does) and then I have to interrupt myself and turn back a page, re-read the last sentence and check the page number, just to make sure I haven't skipped one. Maybe I should talk this over with a therapist? I'm not quite this persnickety in most other matters. OK, maybe I am. In many other areas, though (frequency of oil changes, stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, etc), I'm quite careless and cavalier. One other note - I just realized that in the book I just finished - The Dark Tower II: The Drawing of the Three, I never checked the page numbers even once! That says something for how engrossing that book was. Maybe there is hope for me.
