Ah, the pain of a book hangover. You’ve had it one too many times but it still feels terrible every time.
A bookstore is your heaven on earth — the peace and excitement that this place brings is something only book lovers will understand.
The feel of the paper, the crinkle of a fresh page, the addictive smell of books new and old — these are things that a bookworm wouldn’t trade for anything.
No matter how many times you vow to stick to a reading schedule, you just can’t help but get engrossed in a book.
So many books, and so little time. This is one of the biggest struggles every real bookworm has to face. Even if you read all day long, it’s still not enough.
You can’t give a definitive answer about what is your favorite book because there are just too many good books to choose from.
It’s either you’re still reeling from a book hangover or you couldn’t choose from a pile of books waiting to be read.
Snuggle in a corner, lie on your couch with your legs hanging in the air, or sit on your exercise ball. Name it, you’ve tried it.
You take your books seriously, and you expect others to give them the honor they deserve.
You’ve had your heart broken way too many times by people who borrow your book and never give it back.
Not knowing how things will turn out and where the story is going next can make it too difficult to even start another book.
When people get in between you and your book, that’s when you draw the line.
You know the emotional roller coaster that comes with the thrill of reading a book.
You love the excitement that a fresh perspective on an old favorite brings.
To any bookworm, a bookshelf is an essential piece of furniture, whether big or small.
