10 Signs You’re A Book Lover….or Addict, I Don’t Judge!

Top Ten Tuesday (15).jpg

This is pretty straight forward and I wanted to do up a quick, short, fun post for you all! So I just tossed together some of the things I know I ALWAYS do as a Book Lover and I know I’m not the only one!

10.) You Love Sniffing Books

New book smell, old book smell, they ALL smell good! I personally prefer new book smell though and like to fan the pages and get a good whiff when I’m walking around a bookstore……

9.) You Take Your Books Off the Shelf Just to Hold Them

I can’t be the only one that does this, right? I like to randomly go hold my books and stare at them, especially if they’re newer books! Something about holding new books in my hands is comforting.

8.) You Pack Too Many Books to Take With You on Vacation

Let’s see I probably will only need one or two books, realistically…..but what if I finish both of them?! And I have nothing to read when traveling?! The horror! I’ll just pack a couple more……

7.) You’re Never Without a Book

I always have a least one book in my purse at all times! You never know when you need to sit and read while waiting for an appointment, or have some sudden downtime, or your car breaks down and you just chill and read while waiting for help to arrive. You never know!

6.) You Can’t Wait Patiently For Your BookMail

This one MIGHT actually just be me because I’m the most impatient person in existence. When I order books I literally check their tracking pages more than once daily until they arrive, hoping that by some miracle they will arrive in a day. Yeah, right that won’t happen but I hope anyways!

5.) You Examine Everyone Else’s Bookshelves When You’re Over

I’m terrible at this! If I see you have a bookshelf I will immediately go over and examine what books you read and then proceed to tell you my opinion on any book I recognize. I don’t care if I go over there every day, I’ll do it!

4.) When It Comes Time For Your Birthday & Christmas You Have Books on the List

Oh, you want to know what I’d like for my birthday or Christmas? Books. It’s as simple as that.

3.) You Can Easily Spend Hours at the Bookstore (And Have a Blast!)

I can’t tell you how many times friends, family, or my boyfriend get irritated with the amount of time I can spend walking around in a bookstore. I don’t even have to buy anything! Mostly I end up having to go alone because it’s “too long” for anyone to accompany me!

2.) You Stay Up Late into the Night Reading

I think my record was either 3 or 4 AM from what I can remember, of course I haven’t done that in a while but I still stay up way later than I should reading! When I was a kid I used to pretend to be asleep and then pull out a flashlight so I could stay up reading……

1.) You’re an Emotional Wreck While Reading/Books DESTROY You!

If you don’t get totally invested in the lives of fictional characters, are you even a book lover? When there are horrible plot twists and you don’t cry, scream, or throw your book across the room in rage *gently because we don’t want to ACTUALLY hurt the book*, are you even a book lover? You guys know you’ve all done at least one of those things a couple of times!

Hopefully that was at least semi-fun for you to read through!

Which of these “signs” are some of your bookish habits?

Let me know in the comments!

    I never really bought books on vacation. I got Deathly Hallows in my mail box on release day and read it all day and all night. I stopped for food and bathroom breaks.

      I probably shouldn’t bring books on vacation because usually I don’t have time for them, haha! I think it’s safe to say we all binged the Deathly Hallows except you definitely binged harder haha! πŸ™‚

    So true! Picking out books to carry for vacation is more tough than deciding on which clothes to pack.

      It definitely is! I also think I spend more time on deciding books than clothes as well, haha! πŸ™‚

    all of these are so accurate. I definitely can’t be patient when waiting for book mail, even when I have checked the tracking pages and know it hasn’t arrived yet I go home and curse the postman for not delivering it!

      So true Hannah, I do the same thing! I laughed so hard at the curse the postman part, by the way! Probably because it’s so relatable, I sit and religiously check tracking pages and like you said check the mailbox regardless! πŸ™‚

    New book smell is the best. I just stayed up until 4 AM finishing a book yesterday so…yeah XD

    My favorite thing to do is turn a page in a book, I’ve just always loved the sound and feel of turning a book page, it’s so comforting to me!

      It sure is! I love being able to stay up all night reading, that’s how you know you’re reading a great book!
      I also can’t believe I forgot to mention feeling and turning pages, that’s another good one and also really relatable as well!


    • thesassygeek May 24, 2017 / 2:17 pm

      Haha, glad you agree! Us book lovers have lots of bookish habits in common! πŸ™‚

      That’s probably the one I was a little worried was just me, so glad it’s not! I always feel like it’s such an odd thing to do, just picking up books and holding them but it’s not! πŸ™‚

    These are all so accurate though! One of my favorite things about a Kindle is exactly what you said about vacation: I can bring as many books as I want and it doesn’t get super heavy or take up too much room. But all of this is so me it’s great.

      Thanks, glad you can relate!
      That’s one of the best pros to owning a Kindle, getting to take tons of books everywhere which is just very convenient. πŸ™‚

    Totally agree 😊
    No one ever wants to go to the bookstore with me because they get bored, but I can spend a whole day in there. I also totally check out people’s shelves when I go to visit and I’m the worst when it comes to online tracking πŸ™ˆ

      Same here, nobody goes with me to the bookstore either because they get bored and I could easily stay there all day too! I’m also terribly snoopy when it comes to other people’s bookshelves I actually think if someone said don’t go in that room and I knew there were books I might just go snoop anyways haha! πŸ™‚
