I wish I could take credit for being this clever, but, since I’m not….

If you’re a self-proclaimed bookworm –
(or a bibliophile in denial),
you can probably relate to these 17 problems.
#1: When someone asks you what your favorite book is and expects you to pick just one.
#2: When someone interrupts your reading.
**** Because, really, a book is basically a Do Not Disturb sign.
#3: When the movie version of a book gets everything wrong.
#4: And completely ruins your mental images of characters.
#5: When someone you like tells you they don’t like to read.
#6: When you forget to eat or sleep because a book is so good.
#7: When your favorite character dies.
**** And you pretend they’re still alive but it’s just not the same.
#8: When a book you love gets a harsh review.
#9: When an author stops writing mid-series.
#10: When someone spoils the ending of a book.
**** Or worse, the ending of an entire series.
#11: When you walk into a bookstore.
#12: When you lend someone a book and get it back in terrible condition.
#13: Or never get it back at all.
#14: When you finish a book and have to wait a year for the sequel.
#15: When a book makes you cry hysterically in public and everyone thinks you’re crazy.
#16: When no one gets your obscure literary reference.
#17: When someone says you read too much.
**** Because you know there’s no such thing as too many books.
