Do you have someone who might be a book lover in your life? Or are you a book lover yourself who is seeking to become friends with other book lovers? Well, once you’ve finished one more chapter of your own book, look out for some of the signs listed below and you’ll find a group of book lovers in no time!
1. They Have A Bookish Tattoo
If someone is a book lover, chances are they will have some sort of book or literary themed tattoos. They might have a quote from their favorite book or just a stack of books permanently drawn somewhere on their body!
2. They Wear Bookish Clothing or Jewelry
From clothes, scarves, and bags, to jewelry and more, book lovers can pretty much find some sort of fashion item related to their favorite books. With websites like Etsy and Litographs, the possibilities of bookish fashion are endless!
3. They Have A Reading App On Their Phone
Thanks to smartphones and e-books, book lovers can download a reading app like Kindle or OverDrive and take their favorite books on the go. Goodreads is another great app they’ll probably have on their phone so they can find even more books to add to their To Be Read list.
4. They Will Always Find Room To Add More Books To Their Collection
Even if it means having to rearrange their furniture, buy a bigger house, or have stacks of books laying around, book lovers will always make room for their growing collection of books.
5. They Get Upset When They Haven’t Had Enough Time To Read
Every so often, a book lover might become busy with other things like school, work, or families, which can cut into their designated reading time, leaving them feeling a little grumpy.
6. When They’re Out Shopping, They Always Manage To Find The Book Section
Even if a store only has a small book section, a true book lover will still make their way to browse through all the books. If you’re out shopping with someone who is a book lover, don’t be too surprised if they disappear after a while.
7. They Get Excited When They Receive A Book For A Gift
The good thing about having a book lover in your circle of friends is you can never go wrong with giving them a book as a gift. The only problem is trying to find a book they haven’t already read! (*Hint: check out their Goodreads ‘To Read’ list).
8. They Feel Connected With Someone When They See Them Reading Their Favorite Book
There’s nothing better than seeing a complete stranger reading your favorite book and instantly feeling like you connect with them in some way. The next time you’re on a subway or stuck at an airport, be on the lookout for anyone reading, you never know…they just might become your best friend!
9. They Always Want To Go To A Bookstore Or Library
Some people like to go to the mall, while book lovers love going to a nearby bookstore or a library. There’s just something so peaceful about being surrounded by tons of books and other book lovers. If you’re really in search for a new book lover best friend, head over to a bookstore asap!
10. They’re Reading A Book….Or Two….Or Three
Book lovers come in all shapes and sizes. Some of us like to only read one book at a time and not pick up a new one until we finish the current one. However, there are quite a few of us who like to read multiple books at a time, usually leaving a different book in each room we like to spend time in or reading an ebook for when we’re on the go.
