Are you a book wyrm? Then you’ll probably identify with some of these feelings!
- The special feeling when you get lost in a book that you can’t quite explain.
- The comfort of always having your favorite story to escape into when times get rough.
- Knowing that one of the hardest things in life is putting down a good book in order to fulfill adult responsibilities.
- The feeling of dread when you start a new book because you know that in just a few hundred pages it’ll end.
- The deeply held truth that book wyrms are some of the greatest adventurers on
- Never being quite able to understand why some people choose to only enjoy one life–theirs–and not the thousands you’ve lived through reading.
- That there’s a book to cure every bad mood. Special stories are kept tucked away for a rainy day.
- That some things are worth sacrificing for a good book. Like sleep. Who needs rest?
- The feelings that your addiction for books isn’t one that needs to be solve.
- The feeling of joy you get when you see a really, really big book.
- That feeling that your well-intentioned list of chores will probably never get fully completed because a book always steals you away.
- That the library is the safest place on Earth and the ideal place to hide out during a zombie apocalypse. If I got books, what more do I need?
- That other book wyrms are just about the greatest people around. And if they love the same book as you? Immediate friends for life.
- That there’s always room in your heart to adopt a new book.
- The feeling of embarrassment when you see that look you get from strangers when you accidentally react to a book in public.
- The pain of having variations of this conversation throughout the day: “Do dishes. No, read.” “Do homework. No, read.” “Go to sleep. No, read.”
- Distrusting yourself because you’re your own worst spoiler.
- The frustration of always having to fill in your friends who haven’t read the book on intricate plot details after watching the movie.
- The stressful feelings from trying to pack the right books that you’ll be reading on a vacation, but also having to keep room for less important items, like clothes.
- That the characters in your books have never let you down or not been there when you needed them.
- Except for those unforgivable times when they let their author kill them off and you cried for days.
- The feeling of unfairness when you got grounded from books, not people, as a child.
- The struggle of wanting all your friends to read the same books as you, but not wanting to hand over your most prized possessions.
Keep on readying, book wyrms!
