You know you're a bookaholic when...you can't leave a bookstore without buying something, even when you have a "to-be-read" pile a mile high.

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

When you discover you just bought a book you already have.

When you have spent your paycheck and then realize you forgot to buy groceries!

and

When you talk to people using quotes from your favorite books.

You select your handbags based on whether they are big enough to fit a book .

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

when it even rubs off on your kids: "What should we do today kids?" :Is the library open?" "No, not today." "How about the used book store, then?" "No, not today." "Well, how about the mall book store?" "The mall on a Sunday? It'll be swamped." "Let's just stay home, then. can finish my book."

In planning your house remodel, it's a tough call on whether to make the last room a nursery or a library.

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you get stung by a bee while lying beside the pool, run screaming toward the house, but stop to grab your book...which is lying on your lounge. (True story) ; )

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

Re-reading an old favorite, you find traces of all the meals you spent reading on the page. Bonus bookaholic points if you can identify the stains: "Oh, yeah--that was the hot sauce from Taco Bell"

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

most of your friends wont lend you books anymore because they never get them back

And

when most of your books are crumpled and musty because you read them in the bath despite the steam (another reason not to lend me books)

by Bridget on Tuesday November 29, @03:40AM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

or you don't want to lend your books to anyone because you might not get them back! you like to treasure your books in case you decide to re-read them again later.

Re: You know you're a bookaholic...

...when you google "books read by famous people" so you can get new suggestions of books to read. LOL I do that a lot.. :P

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

You go out for insoles and come back with 6 books and no insoles...

You scribble out six book recommendations on a scrap of paper for the checkout assistant who remarks on one of your purchases....

by Sam on Thursday October 15, @10:11PM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you can recommend a whole list of books for any person you know. And I mean anyone. Even those who don't necessarily read books.

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you go to a bookstore and realise you've read all the books in your favourite genre section :)

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you start reading a book and once you finally decide to stop reading, you notice that 3 hours have gone :)

by looove to read :) on Sunday May 02, @03:52PM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

@Organizedhome that is totally true i mean you could feed a hundred people with the traces of food in all my favourite books :)

: You know you're a bookaholic when...

When stay up all night looking online for new books to read and you don't stop at ten books.

by Andrea on Tuesday August 03, @12:01AM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

You have three wish lists on Amazon.com
1. Books that you really want to read
2. medium priority books
3. Out of print or hard to find books

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

You bring your book at a noisy concert and even a car race.

by Rayandra on Saturday August 28, @09:44PM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

...when you wake up with a book hangover after only getting one hour of sleep; because you had to finish the end of a book.

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you have a small book-shelf in your bathroom !!

by Nathan on Tuesday October 12, @09:01AM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

You miss your stop on the tube or bus (again) because you were so absorbed and feel secretly please when you have to get off and wait for another one in the other direction, meaning that you can have 15 more minutes reading.

or when you call in sick to work because you just have to stay at home and read your new book that you're so so excited about.

by Kate on Friday October 29, @05:30AM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

as a child, you drove your mom crazy by bringing a book or two everywhere with you, even the grocery store. at one point, a dictionary went along too. and your goals of your summers were to read over 100 books.

by ElizabethBennet on Wednesday January 05, @08:24PM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

Borders going out of business is both exciting and tragic; tragic because the closest book store is no longer there and exciting because you can buy tons of clearance priced books

by ME:) on Tuesday August 16, @04:41PM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

you sit there reading almost all day

by Jaz on Thursday September 01, @06:47AM

Re: You know you're a bookaholic when...

As a kid you must lock yourself into a bathroom to read since your mom is going to make you do extra chores if she sees you reading.
