Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Book (or Reading) Related Problems I Have

Ten Book (or Reading) Related Problems I Have

1. Sometimes I bite my nails when I read.

2. I underline a lot and write all over my pages.

A mess

3. I buy used books faster than I can read them.

4. It irks me when my 18-year old leaves his phone, watch, wallet,
and eye glasses on my bookcase.  They are not part of my books.

5. I love my bookcase that my husband built for me, but it is just a bookcase,
and I must not treat it like it is another family member.

Just a bookcase

6. Some people have pets.  I have books.

7. I get excited about going to the library.

8. I would rather read than exercise.  

9.  I bring books with me everywhere,
including family gatherings and birthday parties.

10. Most of the time, I'd rather be reading.

I get so excited about going to the library, too. Maybe a little bit too excited because there are so many books but not enough time to borrow and read all of them. And it really peeves me that my school library tempts me with all of these wonderful books but only allows me to borrow two at a time. Hmph.

Nice list of book related problems!! Lol, I rather read than exercise too. I love the bookcase your hubby built for you. Here's a link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-related.html

I definitely get #8! I've tried to combine reading and exercise a few times, but it never seemed to work out for me.

Your bookcase is beautiful! I totally understand you wanting to keep it looking nice and neat. :)

That bookshelf is amazing! Want one too.

Well, hopefully you can go to the library whenever you want (as soon as you finish your two books). When I was in elementary school, we were only allowed to go to the school library on Fridays. (But I used the public library, too, to get books, so it didn't matter.)

Thanks. Thanks!

I'm like: exercise for 30 minutes or read for 30 minutes. Reading usually wins.

That book case! I love it! I have boring, el cheapo ones from Walmart and Target. Your husband does great work!

Ruth said...

Thanks. He had the nerve to tell me that he doesn't like literature, but he made up for it by building me a bookcase.

I have serious bookcase envy right now :)

Ruth said...

Well, thanks, I think? It does serve its purpose. : )

Ha, "I would rather read than exercise." Amen to that! :) And what a beautiful book shelf!

Doesn't every passionate reader have this problem?

Ruth said...

Thanks, Arenda!

Yes, I think this is true.
