Sure, boyfriends (or girlfriends) are great, but there are some things that you can’t get away with when you’re attached to someone else. But with a book, your possibilities are endless.

Cuddling up on the couch with a significant other is delightful, but what if there was an alternative to that? What if you’re single, and you still want something to do with yourself? Answer: pick up a good book, pour yourself a glass of your favorite bubbly, and settle in for the night. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed! A book can be just as awesome as a boyfriend (or girlfriend), and here’s 12 reasons why.

 

1. You Can Ditch Them Halfway Through

Is your book not doing it for you? Don’t worry, you’re allowed to stop reading it. In fact, you can get rid of it, and no one will judge you for it.
