18 Things Every Book Lover Can Relate To

#1. Having too many books and not enough shelves.

You’ve become a master at making shelves out of empty spaces.

#2. Having too many books and not enough time.

You feel bad for all the books you bought that are just gathering dust.

#3. Not judging a book by its cover, therefore wanting to buy every single book you see in a store.

You know you already have many unread books, but you can’t stop helping yourself to picking up just a few more.

#4. Not making plans for the weekend for the sole purpose of finishing a book.

Because there’s nothing like a quiet night in with a book to curl up with.

#5. Getting asked what your favourite book is.

Even Sophie had easier options.

#6. Knowing that reading a book in public is basically a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign.

And anyone who tries to talk to you is just rude.

#7. Immediately being disinterested in someone who says they don’t read.

“Don’t you love yourself?”

#8. Or immediately being interested in someone who says they love to read.

Mmmm. Talk imaginative to me.

#9. Hating anyone who spoils endings for you.

How. Dare. You.

#10. Always having a book in your bag, in case of emergencies.

Because you never know, y’know?

#11. Pressing  a book against your chest after finishing it because the entire story was just too perfect.

Sigh. It was good while it lasted.

#12. When a book you absolutely love gets a bad review.

“It’s okay, I still love you.”

#13. Being in love with fictional characters.


#14. Not knowing what to do with your life when an author takes too long to publish their next book while mid-series.

This is cruel, unusual punishment.

#15. Making sure your books are all in good condition.

It’s just being responsible is all.

#16. People assuming you’re anti-social because you’re always reading.

“Can I live?”

#17. Not noticing how much time has passed because you’ve been reading.

That’s how you know when a book is really good.

#18. When someone asks you how you’ve been, it can only go one way.

Yep. That pretty much sums it up.
