This is where I share some totally pointless things!
This is a totally pointless post I thought of the other day. I think it was because I saw some sort of picture of a shirt that says bookworm. So I thought: what makes us bookworms, really?
You’re surely a bookworm if:
1.) You get hesitant to lend books because someone might fold the pages or leave marks or dirt. And if they do:
2.) You follow your favorite authors on all social media to get new updates on their books.
3.) You look for a website related to a book and start downloading wallpapers and whatever you can find.
4.) You’ve at least WANTED to buy book-related jewelry and merchandise. (Ex: the Clockwork Angel necklace, a Camp Half-Blood t-shirt, etc.)
5.) You fangirl like a seal when an author favorites/retweets/replies to your tweet.
6.) You imagine yourself dating your book boyfriends (or girlfriends). (I can see you all nodding your heads right now.)
7.) You hoard books on sales.
8.) You spend all your birthday money on books.
9.) You read something sad and suddenly start bawling in public.
10.) You scream at a book when you get frustrated at a character. Something like, “Go die. Die. Diiiie.” (Tip: Avoid doing this in public. Really. I’ve tried.)
11.) You’re still waiting for your Hogwarts letter to arrive even if you’re totally overage. (Hopefully mine will arrive before I’m 50. Rules might’ve changed by then!)
12.) You see someone at a bookstore (or anywhere) reading a book you love and you just want to be a total creep and ask them what part they’re in or if they’re liking it.
13.) You ask for books or Amazon giftcards for Christmas.
14.) You want your parents/siblings to read your books, just so you could talk to someone about them.
15.) You feel the need to write or read fanfiction when a book has an open ending.
16.) You watch the book-to-movie adaptations and either scoff at everything or say, “THAT WASN’T IN THE BOOK!” or “I remember that…” every five minutes.
17.) You’ve tried using Harry Potter spells and were sad when they didn’t work.
18.) You want to visit all the places you’ve read about in books. (Ex. Greece–PJO series, Mexico–Perfect Chemistry, Paris–Anna and the French Kiss, America–Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour, etc.)
19.) You’re waiting for your parents to tell you their either Gods, wizards, mermaids, or something totally weird.
20.) You’re awesome.
What makes YOU a bookworm? Did all my reasons apply to you? *wink wink*
