20 Things Book Lovers Are Awesome At

I think you’ll agree when I say most of us book lovers have a few traits in common. Always having a book on the go? Check. Talking about books 99% of the time? Check. Not sleeping because a amazing book has entered our lives? Check. We’re a unique bunch and there are some things we do that non book lovers simply do not understand.

20 things

1) Not understanding the phrase, “But you already have books to read”
2) Spending all our money on books and having to life off of pot noodles
3) Ignoring everyone and everything around you when a really good bit is happening
4) Spotting someone in the park reading and turning into a ninja to try and see which book it is
5) Getting too emotionally attached to fictional characters
6) Using our shelving space to the maximum and fitting approximately 67 more books on it than it should realistically hold
7) Glossing over the fact we already have a TBR pile as long as the Great Wall of China when buying new books
8) Forcing books upon people, “THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING. IT MADE ME CRY FOR 6 HOURS, I COULDN’T BREATHE, IT WAS SO EMOTIONALLY EXHAUSTING. You should read it.”
9) Going on for 45 minutes longer than we should have when someone asks, “Is that book good?”
10) Turning into a psychoanalysts when someone asks if they can borrow one of your books. Well, we’re not just going to hand them out willy nilly are we? We need to know everything before we can determine whether you’ll bring it back. A simple, “Yes, I will bring it back” just doesn’t suffice
11) Dragging out the last book in a well loved series for 15 years because we can’t bare the thought of it ending
12) Contemplating how life is going to go on as normal when it eventually does end
13) Getting into the heads of characters so much our love ones think we’ve been possessed, “But mum… My thoughts are stars I just cannot fathom into constellations”
14) Forgetting to do important stuff, like eat, sleep, shower and feed the dog when we’re engrossed in a book
15) Forgetting our keys, forgetting our phone, forgetting our passport, forgetting our underwear but never ever forgetting a book
16) Being an advocate for libraries FREE BOOKS PEOPLE!
17)
The ‘look of doom’ when someone interrupts your quality reading time
18) Multitasking. 97 books on the go? Challenge accepted. So many books, so little time
19) Staring and books for prolonged periods of time and marvelling over how incredible it is that a bunch of pages with scribbles on them can mean so much to people and hold such beautiful stories
20) Despite all the people that say reading is weird, us book lovers are awesome at making reading cool again

Dedicated to all my incredible book loving friends and followers. Here’s to you for making reading a hobby to be proud of. Do you do any of these? Or have any suggestions of your own?
