Book Nerd Problems (Top Ten Tuesday Edition)
If you ask me, anyone who is a self proclaimed Book Nerd/Book Addict/Book Obsessed - however you coin it, it's all the same - is going to have some bookish problems related to this affliction. I have more than I care to admit - flaws in my reading habits or silly quibbles if you will. Today's Top Ten Tuesday gives us the perfect opportunity to fess up. Here are six of my book related "problems." Let's do this.
I've always been interested in photography but never seriously pursued it. Give me an Instagram account and a shelf full of books and it's a recipe for plenty of book photography.
We all do this, right? We pick up a shiny piece of gorgeous book art at the bookstore and think, "I must have this!" without knowing what the book is really about?
Have you ever seen Eloise at Christmastime? (If not, it's darling.) You know there's that scene of Eloise in her crazy-messy bedroom where Nanny is tucking her in? In this scene she has a "do not disturb" sign. Sometimes that is me. I'll be so focused on a book that I confess I ignore any questions that are posed to me. I feel like I need Eloise's sign in such instances.
Organization is the bane of my bookish life. Or one of them. I constantly go back and forth on how best to pack the most books on my shelf. It's a given I'm going to double line the shelves (despite it being harder to get to that second set of books, it's a necessity), beyond that I'm constantly moving things and shoving things here and there to make do until I seriously reorganize again.
It never fails that I'll be reading more than one book at a time. The unfortunate end of this bad habit is I think I'm a more efficient reader when only reading one book. Clearly, I do not want to learn that particular lesson.
Unless it's a set I sign up to review, I am horrible at finishing series.
Your turn, friends. Do you have any of these book related problems? If not, what are some of your vices regarding the book world?
