You've undoubtedly noticed how some authors go to so much trouble to build up great tension a few pages before the end of their stories - but a reader who is holding the book physically in his hands can feel that the story is about to end. Hence, he has some extra information which acts as an advance warning, in a way.

—from GΓΆdel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, a book by Douglas R. Hofstadter
