Top Ten Book Related Problems I Have

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's Top Ten Tuesday asks bloggers to list their top ten related book related problems we have. The following book nerd problems are in no particular order.

1. Book Buying is a major problem for me. I need to stop buying books and read the books I have first. I don't like putting myself on a book buying ban so I will put myself on a book buying limit.

2. Indecisiveness when choosing what book to read next or what book to buy next is another problem. I want to read and buy so many books that I can't just narrow it down to just one. I am also a mood reader which doesn't help if I make a TBR list for the month. Usually I just scrap the the TBR list because I never follow it.

3. Sleep deprivation from reading into the wee hours of the night is a common occurrence. Sometimes I just can't put the book down and will read until I have to force myself to get some shut-eye. The book must be good if I can't put if down, right?

4. Finishing chapters is a must for me most of the time. It is hard for me to stop reading mid-chapter.

5. Dog-earing pages is a big no no! Just no, please!

6. Folding back a cover of a book is definitely a huge no no! I cringe everytime I see someone bend back the cover of a paperback.

7. Finding a comfortable place to read is somewhat difficult. I cannot sit in one position for a long period of time before my legs cramp out or my back starts hurting.

8. Horrible film adaptations of books make me sad especially if I love the books. The casting is so important for making a great movie.

9. Cracked spines in paperbacks bother me but it's so hard not to crack a spine if the book is 450+ pages like some of the Harry Potter books. I prefer hardbacks if books have a lot of pages. Less damage to books makes me happy.

10. Missing a bus stop or train stop because I can't stop reading my book. Reading one more page won't hurt, right?

  1. I used to dog-ear books when I was a lot younger, but haven't done that in years. I can't even bring myself to write in a book, other than sometimes writing my name and date in the front.

    1. I use to write in books when I was younger too. I can't bear to write in my books now.

  2. I can't dog-ear pages. I used to many years ago, but definitely not now! I also can't stop reading in the middle of the chapter. I have to read all the way until the end. Great list! My TTT

  3. So many truths in your post here! I'm a compulsive book-buyer and I'm indecisive when it comes to what to read next. Dog-earing and cover folding is a big no no for me. Horrible movie adaptations are quite bothersome.

    And yeah, I've missed a Metro stop because I was so into what I was reading. Oops. :)

    My TTT!

    1. I missed quite a few T stops because I was sucked into the world I was reading about. So worth it though :D.

  4. I don't write in books, but I've noticed some people lightly put their initials inside the back covers of library books. Hopefully with the invention of goodreads this problem will abate.

  5. Book buying and indecisiveness are a few problems I had

  6. I'm a book buying addict too!! It's one of my biggest book related problems!! Here's a link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-related.html

  7. Great list! I really hate finishing in the middle of a chapter too so I always have to put down the book at the end of the chapter instead. I also lose a lot of sleep because of reading, but it's totally worth it! I think my biggest book problem would have to be when covers to a series changes. Thanks for sharing, I'm a new follower. I love your blog! :)

  8. Oh wow, that comic about staying up so late that it's early reading is super cute and super accurate!!
    Great post, Nicole!

    1. Isn't the comic strip cute? Hilarious that it is so accurate :D.
