oh yes!  
Oh yes! Fourth corollary, which Mom reminds me to ask:

Do you like poetry? If so, what kind of poetry? Do you read it for pleasure? If you're an imaging reader, does poetry work for you? Tell me, tell me! (I'm really enjoying this discussion. Heehee.)

I'm not a gung-ho poetry person, and I've been thinking about this whole imaging thing since we talked about it this weekend.

I think I mentioned that it depended on the writing style, but /usually/ I do the camera play-by-play. Lyrical, beautiful writers I don't image, I savor the words. So-so, average writers, or stories that are very action-driven, I go by images. I tend to read the latter kinds of books very quickly, and I suspect I actually skim, reading just enough to complete the images in my head without being too concerned with /how/ the author is writing about it.
