Wondering

So I forgot to post last night because I got distracted by something else. I was reading a novel, and no it wasn't for class, it was for fun. I sat in my bed reading until 1:30am, at which point I had to force myself to go to bed. I read I seem to lose the sense for time, and often forget things that I am supposed to do, like a blog posting. Reading is almost like a daydream. I am here physically, but mentally I am in another world. How do I do that? Is it just serious focus, or does something else happen in my brain that allows me to block out the outside world, and all the thoughts that go through my mind all day. In reference to this weeks topic, I am wondering what role does the unconscious play in when your mind goes wandering, when your in a daydream, or reading?
