Welcome to Bookish Blatherings, a Bad Bird Reads feature where I ramble about bookish or bloggerish things and hopefully you will join in on the discussion.
I felt like sharing some of my reader/booklover/bookworm problems today. Enjoy!
♦ When you go from reading a book on your Kindle to a paperback and try to turn the page of the paperback with the slide of your finger. Do’h!
♦ When you are reading in public and a hot sex scene come up. So many blushes!
♦ When you are 98% into a book and there is no wrap-up in sight. Freaking cliffhangers!!!
♦ When you laugh out loud while reading in public…in a relatively quiet place….with people in it…and they look at you like you’re crazy…then you don’t know if you should explain why you are laughing or just hide behind your book.
♦ Trying to find the best position for your book while trying to cover as much of your body in a blanket. Then your hand is fucking freezing. Snuggies, people, Snuggies.
♦ When the wrong actor (in your opinion) is chosen for the book-to-movie.
♦ When something awesome happens in the book you are reading and the only person near you is a non-reader and you can’t help but tell them all about it because you have to talk to someone, and their eyes glaze over with boredom. Soul crushing!
♦ When a character’s name is ridiculously hard to pronounce so you make up your own name for them, then one day you have to talk to someone about that character and you are fucked. You can either look like an idiot and say the name wrong or admit that you don’t know how the hell to say their name and never even tried to know and look like a bigger idiot.
♦ When the movie adaption takes out you favorite scene.
♦ When you finish the best book ever and rush to look up when the second book is coming out and see a date for a year from now. It’s like a small death.
What are some of your reader problems? Can you relate to any of mine?
