Here are 12 more indicators of book addiction:
- You have a book bucket list. It never really gets shorter, only longer.
- There are books in every room of your home instead of televisions.
- There is no such thing as a partially used or unused Barnes and Noble gift card in your possession. In fact, when gifted it is most likely spent within a week.
- You’ve tweeted a #shelfie. You object to shelfie being underlined in red by the computer as a misspelling .
- If you read a book based on someone’s recommendation and love the book that person becomes an instant BFF.
- You facepalm when someone announces they liked Twilight. Don’t blame yourself. It’s practically an involuntary reflex.
- Scouting out bookstores on vacation is a must.
- Hunger poses an irritating interruption during a reading binge. You’ve most likely grabbed food and brought it back to your reading space. You shouldn’t be judged for bits of crumbs on your shirt and surrounding area.
- When people come to you for book suggestions you can match a book to their interest and personality.
- Your version of a gossip magazine is a biography.
- You feel compelled to tell everyone about the book you are reading and only notice about 20 minutes in that you’re giving a lecture and not engaged in a conversation.
- This is your purse. Well, it’s mine.
