Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's Top Ten topic is, "Ten Bookish Problems I Have". HAHA! Just ten? Well, ok then...
I spend all of my money on books!
The ONLY things I buy for myself are books. Which is why I dress like a hobo and eat cheap food.
I don't get much sleep!
I'll stay up all night reading or blogging about books. Late at night is my only free time, so I usually only get a few hours of sleep.
That's what coffee is for.
There are books EVERYWHERE!
The books are on shelves, piled on tables, stacked on the floor, in every cabinet and on every surface of every room. Lots and lots of books. I want to read them, but...
There's not enough time to read all the books I buy!
I'd rather read than socialize!
If given the choice to leave my house and do stuff or stay home and finish my book (or start a new one), I'm going to pick my book. I've even cancelled plans because I didn't want to stop reading.
My purse is HEAVY!
My purse is gigantic and heavy because I usually carry two books in it, the one I'm reading and one just in case I finish that one. It's a habit.
I get overly excited and emotional over books!
Not everyone appreciates a "book shimmy" or cares when bad things happen to good characters. I've cheered, cried, laughed or screamed in public and I'd do it again.
I try to read too many books at the same time!
I sometimes end up reading three or four books at a time. I have so many and I can't always decide what I want to read, so I read all of them! Or as many as I can. Sometimes I end up having to set some aside because I overwhelm myself.
I'm a bookaholic!
I love books. I need them in my life and I've been working in bookstores for many years. If I'm not buying them or reading them I still just like being around them. Books make me happy.
Sometimes people don't get me and my nerdy book references!
But you know what? That's ok, because some people do. And as for those who don't...it's their loss, because...
What are your bookish problems?
