Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Signs You're A Book Lover




This week's Top Ten Tuesday  (hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl) is tips to tell whether you're a dyed in the wool book-lover. This was more fun than I thought it would be. I'm not actually reading anything at the moment and I'm feeling the sort of pain only a bookworm can feel. Are you showing any of the signs?



10 Signs You're a Book Lover:


When you don't have a book on the go, you feel like you've lost an arm.

You know loads of random facts you've picked up from books, and sometimes people ask you "Why do you know that?


Honestly, don't you two read?" on We Heart It


You know what a good book should smell like.

You often have in-depth conversations about people who do not exist. 

When you go to someone's house for the first time, you have a nose at their bookshelves and make judgements accordingly. No books at all? Not even a celebrity biography? That's a red flag.

The library staff know your name without having to scan your card. 

You've missed your stop because you were reading.

You went to/ sent your kid to World Book Day as a favourite character, and the teacher had no idea who you/they were supposed to be.

You've been at work/out with friends and spent the whole time thinking about your book at home - because you're coming to the exciting bit. 

You're filling your time in lock-down...quite easily?

  1. Non readers, non crafters, and extraverts must be the people struggling most with lock-down, I guess. But then library users are struggling too, I had 23 books out when it closed, but I know a lot of people, don't you know, hoard/binge borrow books.

    1. I know, I don't know how people are coping if all their hobbies are outdoorsy/social. Does your library do e-books? I know it's not the same, but its something - queues'll be massive though, that's the only thing.

    2. They do and audiobooks (but I usually use Audible), but I'd have to be really desperate, and I'd probably buy more books first, and I'm not at that point.

  2. I'm struggling somewhat with lockdown, my hobbies may be mostly indoors but I do love spending time with my friends and I'm missing that. #2 is so true, my parents are always surprised when I know some random fact and it's nearly always something I've learned through books!

  5. I used that GIF of Hermione today, too. It's one of my favorites! I'm the same way when I meet someone who doesn't read - what is WRONG with you? LOL. I just don't get it. How can you not read? Ever? So weird.

    Happy TTT!

  6. The random facts I learned from book is 100% me. I remember talking about soccer tournament stuff with a guy at work, and he was so impressed I learned all I knew from a romance novel.
