Confessions of a Book Addict

Scroll to Info & Navigation

You may be a book addict if...

1:
You spend a lot of money on books. Even at thrift stores and used book stores. You can never get enough.

2:
You have bookcases, shelves, or stacks of books EVERYWHERE.

3:
Most of those shelves are warped from the weight of all of your books.

4:
You can never pass a bookstore or a store with a selection of books without having just. one. glimpse. inside. ("Just one, I swear!")

5:
People give you books or giftcards to bookstores as gifts for special events.

6:
You ALWAYS have a book with you. Even if it is a huge hardcover edition.

7:
You can never stop talking about books. Ever.

8:
You occasionally say, "Oh, that movie looks interesting! Better read the book first, since it's probably even better!" Or some variation of that.

9:
You proudly show off the fact that you read an incredibly difficult book that not a lot of people have read. Be proud!

10:
Your parents have told you to do something social... maybe go outside, see the sun, smell fresh air.

11:
You have mastered the "don't-talk-to-me-or-else-you're-dead-to-me" look for people who have boundary issues when you're reading.

12:
Sarcasm is occasionally your friend when people say obnoxious things about you reading so much.

13:
You salivate over pictures of books. It's okay, we all do it.

14:
You can't browse the deals section of a cheap book website because you know you can't really afford it, but you'll shop anyway.

15:
One of your goals in life is to have a personal library in your home when you have your own house.

16:
The smell of new books, or old books, is something you look forward to.

17:
You always take a step back after putting your book haul away and stare at your growing book collection.

18:
You basically live at the library, bookstore, or secondhand bookstore closest to your home.

19:
You want to marry a book lover, too.

20:
You occasionally break into emotional hysterics when reading a really intense book in public.

21:
You ask yourself: physical books or ebooks?

22:
You need to place a book buying ban on yourself.
