To be honest I'm kinda allergic to reading books, so in that case no I'm not going to cry from reading a book unless if I'm reading it without my reading glasses which makes me tear up from straining my eyes for the most part

I don't read many books, but I think I've cried at a few. I can't remember any of their names, though. Even if you include manga, I still don't have a lot I can give you. I can name about a bajillion anime that I've cried at, though.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

I rarely cry about books or TV shows or things of the sort.

Never cried, but maybe a few sniffles at some books which have been touching in a sad way.

I haven't read a book in ages. But I did want to cry when I went into the bookstore today and saw the young adult section dominated by 'supernatural' romances. >_>;
I am the very model of a scientist salarian,
I've studied species turian, asari, and batarian.

I've never cried, but some authors have made me feel that aggressive feeling or the suspense the character is feeling. This doesn't happen too often, though.

Not since I was between the ages of 7-9. It was by Oscar Wilde and called "The nightingale and the rose". It just really touched me.

Depends on how they end.

If they end with cliffhangers, and no sequel/prequel after it was published, then I'll probably cry. Because I'll never know what happened and would have to think up an ending myself XD

Can't say I've ever cried after reading a book. Never read a really sad book before though, but even so I don't think I would.
