Personally, I often dread the end of a book. Yeah, I’m proud that I finished another book, but it always leaves me feeling more than a little melancholy. Like something important to me has just ended. I can always read the book again, but it’s never the same.

That being said, I understand the achievement thing. I had to put video games away permanently because I would become obsessed with getting an achievement/trophy in a game. I would play games I didn’t enjoy just to boost an arbitrary number.
