I enjoyed seeing Ellen and Pastor Jim again as well, which just reminded me how great this show is with it's continuity (mostly), and I look forward to reading the rest of the prequels.
I'm a lover of fiction in all shapes and forms, but my first love is reading. Give me a good book and I can get completely sucked into that world. I'm a very emotional reader, and I often get attached to characters. It's not unusual to come across me laughing or crying while reading.
