Welcome to what will hopefully be a fairly long series of posts, where I attempt to explain the behavior and thoughts of a bookworm. If you’re a fellow bookworm, leave a comment at the end and tell me your thoughts on the topic. As something I will say, all bookworms have many similarities but we’ve also got our differences. There’s always the odd exception to the rule.
Hellooooo! So I was brainstorming for a bit on a new segment for my blog and came up with this. Bookworms Explained, and as the title suggests, these posts are me explaining us bookworms. I’d just like to say that as always these are obviously my own thoughts and opinions, as NOT every bookworm will take a book with them everywhere. But you’ll realise pretty quickly, one way or another, we have a book with us somehow.
Now if you’re a non-reader and you’ve stumbled across here, or maybe your partner, friend, relative is a bookworm and told you to read this. Either way, I’d just like to point out that trying to make us leave the house without a book, is a miracle that doesn’t occur very often.
I think the main reason we take a book with us everywhere is it’s a comfort thing. We may not always have time to read but we like knowing, that if we did have time to read, we have a book with us. As well as it being a comfort thing, it’s also so we have a hope of actually reading. Like maybe if we bring a book with us everywhere, we’ll actually read and not procrastinate and do everything else BUT read.
Another thing to remember, if we don’t have an actual book on us, you’ll probably find out that we’re either listening to an audio book or we have a kindle with us. Now if we’re still in a form of education it’s more likely we’ll have a kindle with us, particularly those of us who are at college/uni. Why? Well because carrying over 9 books around with you can be quite tiring, and also they’d not all fit in our bag. We like having a wide selection of books to choose from, as you’ll find out. The majority of us tend to be indecisive readers, particularly when buying new books or picking new books to read from our shelves/kindle. So having a kindle is pretty handy, tons of books all in once place, easy to carry and plenty of choice. For me, I take one physical book with me to college. And sometimes I’ll add in another book it depends really. I’m a fast reader with physical books and I don’t read a whole lot of eBooks or Audio but those that do have an easier time in a way, because the book doesn’t take up as much physical space in your bag.
Lastly if we ever want to avoid social situations its always reassuring to us knowing we have reading material on us. We’re usually pretty antisocial it’s not you don’t worry…it’s the book. We’ll pick a book over people 99% of the time and if you’re lucky enough to be in the 1% treasure it and realise that person must love you a lot to choose you over the book.
That’s it for now, watch this space next Friday for another edition of Bookworms Explained. Thank you so much for reading, and please leave me a comment and tell me your thoughts on this topic. Are you the exception to this and don’t take a book everywhere with you? Let me know your thoughts please and once again, thank you for reading.
