Whether or not we want to face up to the truth or not, we all have our own random plethora of guilty habits. For the devoted book lover, however, when it comes to our sacred reads, some of these habits can get a little extreme and out of hand. Be honest, are you guilty of any of these?

 

1. Rereading A Favorite Book At Least 10 Times

Hey, this number may soon reach the skies! There’s no limit on how much you can read your favorite stories. Sometimes, rereading certain novels makes the reading experience all the more lovable and memorable.

4. Internet Stalking Your Favorite Author For Hours And Hours And Hours…

I’m pretty sure they’ll just view it as being a very appreciative fan. A fan who just so happens to own three copies of every single thing they’ve ever written, reread them all multiple times, and can’t seem to stop reading their blog for updates about new releases…

6. Creating The Musical Score For Each Book You Read

9. Pretending To Have Read Every Classic And Loved It

It’s a very sad day in the life of a bookworm when we have to come to the conclusion that a book is…well painfully boring. It happens! Just put that one down (whether or not it’s a classic) and pick up one you think you’ll enjoy.

14. Reading=Free (well, almost) Traveling

Each time we open up a book we know we have the possibility of being transported anywhere around the globe, into a completely unknown dimension, or maybe we’ll just be floating in time. Either way, reading is a much less expensive way to make use of those frequent flyer miles.
