5 Things only TRUE bookworms will understand

Cover image for 5 things only true booksworms will understand

The life of a bookworm is filled with things other people just don't understand. You can try to explain it to them, but only other bookworms will be able to truly understand and share in your pain and frustration. Here's a list of 5 bookish problems only other bookworms will get.

  1. Being surrounded by piles of unread books and still not having anything to read.

  2. Running out of bookshelf space. No, not running out of space ON a bookshelf. Running out of space to put any more bookshelves.

  3. Realising a book/series has been on your TBR for far too long when you see they are being reissued with new covers.

  4. The agony of publishers changing the book size, spine art or cover style of a series midway in the series. Your beautiful collection will never match now, you'll just have to learn to live with it.

  5. Feeling judged by the progress bar of your Goodreads reading goal. A percentage bar has never been so judgmental.

Have you experienced any of these? Do you have any other bookish struggles to add to the list?

    I'm struggling with number 2 and 5 the most right now.

    I seriously don't have room for another bookshelves and I have so many books and... Where to put them?! People look at me like: just throw some other books out, and I'm like: Are u KIDDING ME?!

    Loll.. Great post!
