Confessions of a Bookaholic or How to Understand Them


After seeing these on another blog, I just had to share them with ya'll. Basically all these "confessions" are exactly how I am... I couldn't believe how well they hit the nail on the head! :) Not that I'm really confessing anything, cause I'm not sorry I'm a bookworm in the very least! :)



This is usually the case... which is great!

Exactly. That's what books are for anyway. :)


And because I don't want those stories to end, I think up continuing stories!

Yeah... of course, otherwise that's sacrilege!
Well, yes, but since I'm a visual person, then I want to think it up as a movie. :)
 
Yep - and then I get asked by family member(s), "what's so funny?" 
Well... this is one of those that is not completely true for me. Only sort of.

Nothin' better!

Ain't that the truth... plus I have a huge list of other fun things to do.


Yes, but not in my bed.

I've not done it that late, but I have done it.


Depends on the book...

Not every detail necessarily, for me.
 
I just don't have the money to replace it! Minor details...

Usually. Unless the books are ones like Fordythe's Sermons (think Mr. Collins from P&P) or some commentary by some reformer.


Now that I think about it, yep...

It's about time! :)

I won't die literally... just figuratively.

Not at four in the morning.

No, not really. It's just makes it a little inconvenient.
My relatives don't do that, but if I did get one I'd probably use it.
Didn't I already comment on something similar to this? Like the one above?!
Sounds a little hazardous to your health... but I can do it, if I want to.
 
Why leave it at home, may I ask?!

That is just... argh!
Amen!
Erm, yeah. Okay, next confession.
 
I'm drooling...
You better believe it! 
 
Nothing irritates me more than when they ruin a good book with a lousy movie "based" on the book. That's just laziness on their part.
Get to know them like the back of your hand would sum that up perfectly.
To some degree.

No, I go "What'd you do that for? I coulda seen that coming a mile off!"

If I hear them - and if I do, I'll realize I'm being talked to (but may not hear their question) and say "What did you say?"
Not that much.

So - can anyone else relate?

644 is one I have done. I did it just the other day. I was up until 2:30 and then had to get up at 6. Oh well, it was a great book.
