Top Ten Book Related Problems

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's theme is Top Ten Book Related Problems! This should be fun!

1. I can't stop buying books! I think we all have this problem. I have stacks of books to read at home, but I see a book store...or a book sale...or books on sale online...and I can't stop myself. I need MORE!

2. My bookshelves are packed. My husband even built me a new bookshelf....and it's already packed.  I need an entire room of bookshelves really, but we have a small until then...overstuffed bookshelves are my life :) Or I need to sort through and sell some of my books that I'm not going to reread...but....I can't part with

3. My TBR list is endless. I actually have real anxiety about the fact that there are so many books I want to read but I know I won't be able to read them all.

4. Book hangovers. I love that books that give me book hangovers, but it makes figuring out what to read next impossible!
  5. Work/etc taking up all my reading time. 8 hours of reading time a day, gone! Having to cook, clean, laundry, etc? Reading time gone!

6. I go to the library for one book, and come out with five (or more). Oh that one looks good! Oh! So does that one! Pretty soon I have an armful of books.

7. People bugging me when I'm reading (unless its for a good reason). This especially bugs me on my lunch break. Yes, I'm sitting in my car reading on purpose. Don't talk to me. I'm introverting.

8. Always having to carry a big purse because I ALWAYS have to have my kindle and a book with me. A physical book in case my kindle battery dies, of course :)

9. Preferring to read than hang out with (most) people.  With the exception of some good friends/family, I'd really just rather hang out at home and read.

10.When people say "I've seen the movie, I don't need to read the book." Really?!? 99.99% of the time, the book is better!

What are your bookish problems?


  1. Yes! Always carry a big purse! And I too prefer books to people most of the time. I'm just way more comfortable at home. The endless TBR stresses me out, too!!

    1. Another problem I didn't list: hardback books!! They make my purse too heavy!! Thank goodness for Kindle!

  2. Awesome list! I can't stop buying books either. There's just so many that I want to rad so I just buy them all! The bad thing is it makes my TBR pile worse. Thanks for sharing.

  3. The only good thing about work is that it means more money for buying books haha. Plus I get 1 uninterrupted hour of reading each day.

    1. Excatly!! Haha. Gotta have money to buy books! And I absolutely LOVE reading on my lunch break! Favorite hour of the day!

  4. Wow, great list. I agree with all of these so much!
