19 Times Tumblr Understood Just How Stressful A Booklover’s Life Is

As my friends know, if you can’t find me in our designated meeting spot, there is a 99.9% certainty that I can be found – lost but happy – in the nearby bookstore. This is a source of many problems. Tumblr gets why.

 

  • Bookstore visits are magical adventures.

  • Books literally take you on an emotional rollercoaster.

  • Sometimes, admittedly, that rollercoaster is too much…

  • …which leaves us emotionally exhausted wrecks.

  • To read a book is to live another life: our own must necessarily suffer.

  • Because we choose to be with books more often than people.
