My fellow book readers can hopefully relate to some “book reader problems” I have on occasion. When I vent to my boyfriend he just nods and listens (he’s a great listener), but doesn’t understand because he doesn’t read books.
So, I wanted to share my top five book reader problems.
1. Not Enough Room In My Purse
I like to carry around one or sometimes several different books to read. This causes a problem when they all don’t fit in my purse.
2. Not Enough Room On My Book Shelf
I have no more book shelf space and haven’t been able to buy anymore books. My dream is to one day have a library like Belle in Beauty & The Beast. That was an entire room and will definitely solve the problem (maybe).
3. Hard Cover v.s. Soft Cover
I’m the type that loves getting books as gifts. Now, I’m a hard core soft cover book lover (say that ten times fast). Don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful when I receive a hard cover book, but soft covers are much easier to carry around.
4. Having to Stop Reading When Iv’e Reached the Best Part of the Book
The worst thing about getting to the best part of a book, and I mean the part that has me crying or biting my lip in suspense, is when the train is at my stop. That means I have to put my book away and get off.
5. Diminished Listening Skills
I don’t know about you, but when I’m so caught up in a book, people around me tend to be…non-existent. Essentially, when I’m reading a really good book, I don’t listen to others very well. I’m in my own little world.
Let me know what your book reader problems are.
I would love to read some of your stories.
