Confessions Of A Bookaholic

For some of us, books are our lives and people will always see us reading something. As a fellow bookaholic and as one who has many bookaholic friends, here are some things that we share.

1. You mark your calendar when the book you really want to read comes out.

Calendars aren't just for when papers and projects are due when you're a bookaholic. That date may even be circled so many times because it's that exciting; there's nothing to be ashamed of.

2. Goodreads is one of your most visited websites and you may go on it for fun.

For us Goodreads is the Forever 21 of books, but instead of hundreds of cute clothes there's millions of books. You may be there for hours and your want-to-read box may be lengthy but who's to judge, books are life.

3. The perfect day out is to sit in a bookstore for hours and read.

Who needs to explore the city or go shopping when there's a bookstore near with hundreds of books at your fingertips and you can explore the dystopian world or the life of the 19th century. The day is even better if there's a cafe and you get the best of two world, coffee and books. You may even be able to build your own fort with all the books you picked out.

4. You fangirl when your favorite author writes a new book.


Everyone has a favorite author and the day they announce they are publishing a new book you squeak inside, or out, and do a little happy dance.

No matter what kind of books you like, you're not strange for getting excited over the opportunity to read. Maya Angelou once said, "I always felt, if I can get to a library, I'll be OK." How true, Ms. Angelou!
