    Several books actually. Well crying is something I don't do, but a few drops rolled out my eyes. The most recent one was after reading Olive Schreiner's 'The Buddhist Priest's Wife'. It's not an entire book, it is but a short story. It was part of a collection.

      Thank you@ Deep Mataphysical for your kind response.
      I am sure that the short story must have been seriously powerful to make few drops roll down from your eyes.
      Thanks for your honest response and it seems you can control your mind very well.

    Many many times with many many books.  I'll cry from the beginning to the end of "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.  Unbelievably beautiful and poignant book.  I'm getting teary just thinking about it.

      Thank you for your response. Nice to know about that others also feel the same as i do.
      Carry on with the feeling to completely get lost yourself in reading some more wonderful books.
      Best wishes to you.

    Oh yes, definitely - lots of times. Captain Corelli's Mandolin, the last three chapters always - I can barely see the pages through the blur of tears.

    It's good to have a good cry.

    I cried during the book "Jesus is for real". It's the story of a boy who died for a few minutes on a surgery table when he was young. He went to heaven and I was touched that he saw his sister who died before she was born. It gives me hope that some day I will see my own sister and grandmother, Brianna and Barbara.

    I cried after reading Phantom by Susan Kay. It was not because it was sad, though it was at times... I cried because I was overwhelmed by the story, the amazing writing style, and the beauty of the entire experience. Beautiful!

    Many times, even if I already read it more than thrice. I cant remember all the titles of books but I bet every sad and unhappy ending, and tragic ones would let my tears fall.
