TEN SIGNS YOU'RE A BOOK LOVER

March is almost over and I cannot believe it! Arizona is officially on lockdown for this crazy pandemic. It took our governor long enough to finally issue one. I have been in quarantine myself for a month now. Thank god for books is all I have to say!

Anyways, today's Top Ten Tuesday is Ten Signs You’re a Book Lover (basically, people know you’re a book lover because… i.e., you’re always carrying a book or two, your library card broke from overuse, etc.)


If you want to look at other Top Ten Tuesday prompts you can go here.



Here are my ten signs that I am a book lover:

1. I always carry a book with me. It doesn't matter where I am going I always have a book in my bag or on my phone. 

2. I sneak time to read. Whether I am in line, stuck at a doctor's office, I am always sneaking or finding time to read. I get way more reading done this way.

3. I cannot fall asleep without reading. At the end of the day, I need to read a book in order to fall asleep. Insomnia is the worst and I suffer from it horribly. The only thing that can put me to bed is a book. I look forward to bedtime and reading my book all day. There is nothing like unwinding with a good book.


4. I try to encourage my friends and family to read. I am always pushing my loved ones to read and recommending books. I want them to enjoy reading as much as I do because I think they are missing out.

5. I am constantly running out of room on my personal bookshelves that I even had to get another shelf to accommodate all of my many books. If I rate a book 3 or below I have to get rid of it to free up more room on my shelves.

6. I get so unbelievably excited over book mail and getting new books. I love their smell. I mean book pages are the best smell right?! 


7. Everyone comes to me for book recommendations. I can come up with a book for anyone that they may like in mostly any genre.

8. When my family or friends come to me asking if I want to go to a specific movie most of the time I will end up saying I loved the book or I read the book or even I don't want to see it yet until I read the book. Often, when I leave the theater I will end up saying the book was so much better.

9. I obsess over book covers. I will even buy books just because of their beautiful covers even if I do not know what the book is about.

10. When I leave my house for an extended amount of time or go on vacation I take too many books with me. Book overpacking is a real thing. I have a hard time choosing which books to bring. I never know how much time I am going to have to read. A big fear of mine is running out of things to read.



How do you know that you are a book lover? Do we have anything in common? Aren't books the greatest? I do not know what I would do without books and reading.

  1. Oh gosh, I so relate to these! Sneaking time to read is my secret when someone asks how i read so much lol. I just squeeze it in among all the other things. Book mail is the most exciting thing! I'm also definitely guilty of buying books based on their cover, even though we're not supposed to. Oops? Oh well. Great list!

    Here's my TTT post.

    1. Who says we aren't supposed to though? With most things in life it is that way. I can't help but be drawn to a beautiful cover.

  2. This is adorable! I definitely relate with most of them because I am a huge bookworm even until now. I always encourage my family and friends to read my fave books, but it always ends up with them telling me that they can't stand reading a page or two, which is tragic! Reading is like a breath of fresh air, and I'm so happy that you love it as well :)

    1. Yes, I feel like most book people do that. It is a common trait. I think it is great too.

  4. Oh, yes. I can relate to every single one of these. I don't call my blog Feed My Fiction Addiction for nothing!

  5. I can relate to many things on your list. ESPECIALLY #1! Even if I don't think I'll get a chance to read, I need to bring a book with me. You never know :)

    1. Oh yes. I wish more people were like this. I am always encouraging people to read. I do not get people that don't.

  6. Encouraging friends and family to read is a big sign of book lovers. I am so thankful that I have a daughter who loves to read and she reads everything she can get her hands on. When we go out, she always asks to go to the book store. :)

    1. That is amazing. If I ever have children I hope that trait rubs off on them. I will always encourage people to read.

  7. I like #2! Most of my sneaky reading involves having a book on the passenger seat so I can read at stoplights in the town where red lights sometimes last over a minute. Having a book at hand to read while waiting in lines sounds wise. More fun than just fiddling around on a phone for sure.

    1. I always do that in line lol. However, I feel like reading while driving can be dangerous.
