15 things only book lovers will understand


1. The agony of finishing a great book

Ah, the pain of a book hangover. You’ve had it one too many times but it still feels terrible every time.

2. The bookstore is that one place you wish you never had to leave

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. 

4. Dealing with all those sleepless nights

No matter how many times you vow to stick to a reading schedule, you just can’t help but get engrossed in a book.

5. Not having enough time (and books) to read

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. 

6. Never having a favorite book

You can’t give a definitive answer about what is your favorite book because there are just too many good books to choose from.

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.

10. Having second thoughts about letting other people borrow your book

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. 

12. Getting pissed when someone interrupts you while you’re reading
