I had occasion to discuss this with a colleague recently, and her answer surprised me, causing me to ask some friends and family, so I thought I'd broaden my sample pool. How about it, RP?

I focus on the words, but I do visualize some of the time, especially if it is something that I am familiar with or like.

I hear the words in my head, and I form pictures if the narrative is visually detailed.

Yes,I agree, its the narrative that helps complete the picture and place the live action in the written words.

Love those "Dirk Pitt" series! You almost have to form a picture in your mind to truly appreciate Clive Cussler's work.

I also love those Dirk Pitt series from Clive Cussler, I also read anything I can get from Dale Brown, a former Air Force Captain that flew in B52s. The action is quick paced and I can picture the people, the equipment, the weapons, the action, He has that all down pat. A lot of the things i read are in that sort of mode a paint a great action picture with the total narrative not just any individual word. It is a skill.
