What happens to books when we aren’t reading them? Do the characters lives go on without us? Does the hero slip away into the nearest tavern to soak away his responsibility in a foaming mug? Does the damsel in distress decide to make the best of her situation until the cover opens once more? Does the princess remain locked in the tower, or asleep, and does the little mermaid cast herself against the rocks in desperation? Maybe everyone falls back into place like Buzz and Woody when the reader returns. Or maybe, just maybe, the story shifts into a completely different direction from the last time anyone opened it.
