Bookish Things And Thoughts #2


Hello again my lovely BookNerds! I thought that today I would continue with my Bookish Things and Thoughts series that I started (Part one here). Here are some more bookish things that I often do, and some of you might too!

The Accidental DNF

I love to read, as we all do here, and I will often read books in one sitting because I NEED to know what happens and I have no self control. But, If it happens that I cannot read the book in one sitting and need to read it a couple of chapters at a time I have, on occassion, put the book back on my shelf AND COMPLETELY FORGOT THAT I WAS READING IT. Then by the time I have remembered I was halfway through I have forgotten the plot and now need to restart the book.


Bookshelf Reordering

Whether it is because I have hauled or unhauled (Let’s be honest I hoard my books so this is not the reason) a load of books, or my mood has changed, I will forever spend my lif ordering and reordering my bookshelves. By genre, author or main theme, I will move it around until I can fit as many books as is physically possible on my shelves before they collapse, and until it looks very very pretty! Does this mean my books end up crammed together and taking one off the shelf my result in an avalanche and injury? Yes. But do I care? Nooope. I will take the risk if it means more books will fit.


The Book Pile

However, there are times where my books do not all fit, or I have been bought some for my birthday or other event and this often results in THE BOOK PILE. On the floor or on my desk, a pile of books will sit staring at me menacingly and slowly growing larger until I have no choice but to rearrange MY ENTIRE BOOKSHELF AGAIN in order to fit the new books.


Wishlists

I have so many wishlists on so many sites from Waterstones to WHSmiths full of books that I want but will take FOREVER to actually read. My wishlists are huge because buying all the books is far too expensive but they are there as gift ideas for my family/friends. But I have soo many huge wishlists that I have to ensure everyone checks with everyone on what they have bought me! The wishlists are never ending…


My Answer Will Always Be Books

SOO With the holidays coming up, which for me means CHRISTMAS! and my birthday (December baby power!) I always get the question ‘What do you want?’ To this I always espond with ‘nothing’. I prefer to give gifts rather than receive, but my friends and family also love giving gifts so this response often leads to me being questioned again and again. So I cave and say ‘Ok just a book then’ which is great everyone say ok and moves on. UNTIL THEY REALISE THAT IS ALL I ASKED FOR and for some reason this is a problem because my family don’t want to ‘just get me books’ so they always ask ‘what else?’ MY ANSWER WILL STILL BE BOOKS, and will ALWAYS be BOOKS because I will never have enough. Never.


So that was a few more Bookish things that happen in my life! I love all things booksih and all the habits, thoughts and occassions it may bring – I will try to continue on with this if you all enjoyed it!
How many of these do you do? Or do you have any other Bookish habits? Let me know! Happy Reading BookNerds! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’œπŸ“š

  2. You literally made me laugh out loud with the part about forgetting to pick a book back up if you don’t finish it in one sitting and that’s no small feat at 6am. πŸ˜‚ And bookish gifts are the best ❀️❀️❀️

  3. OMG such an brilliant and relatable post!πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ I DNF’d most of the books accidentally last year because I’m never able to finish a book in one sitting nowadays. πŸ˜‚ And whenever I buy new books I put them on the bedside table and on the floor and not on the shelf and the stack keeps growing lmao 🀣🀣

    This post is sooo good! 🀩

    • AWWHH thank you!!! πŸ’œπŸ’œAhh IKR Accidental DNF’s are so easy to do, particularly when you can’t just sit and read!πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ hehe EXACTLY the same, It is easier to put them everywhwere but the bookshelf because otherwise you have to actually reorganise or find room so the pile grows! I swear it takes on a life of its own!πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

      Thank you sooo much!! You are so SWEET!!! I am super happy you enjoyed it!πŸ’œπŸ’œ
