As a Book lover, bookish person, book worm and so on, when gift-giving occasions come around and I’m asked about what I would like – naturally my only answer is books. So Imagine the heart-break when non-bookish family members reply with “books aren’t real gifts” 😭. Non-bookish people seem to think books are not proper presents and I have never been so offended in my life!?! Where did this foolish thinking come from? The real bookish struggle is getting people to realise that they are a superior gift!
As in all book lovers lives, there comes a time when we realise, to our utmost horror, that we are running out of space on our bookshelves😲. A true nightmare for us all! And, of course, we find a solution … be it buying more book shelves or creatively creating book piles. However, non-bookish people have the audacity to recommend that I get rid of some of my books to make space?! I think not, I will continue to hoard my books until the day I become a restless spirit who returned with the unfinished business of completing my tbr.
Never Ending TBR!
Speaking of hoarding, I perpetually move between to very distinct moods. The first being the fear that there is not enough time in the world for me to get through my tbr! My TBR is practically never-ending with all these fantastic new releases popping up all the time! (…and I definitely do not ignore this tbr in favour of re-reads or new books that I freshly added to it…)
Not Enough on the TBR?!
The second mood I have is that I do not have enough books on the tbr! What if I run out?! This is, of course, completely and utterly irrational because my tbr is indeed monstrous, and viciously eyeing me for ignoring it in favour of new books. However, I still randomly get into this mood and go on a spree of adding more books to me tbr, again making me fall back into mood number 1. It is a cruel cycle of my own making.
Tell me, do you relate to any of these? Or do you have any other bookish moods and feelings? Let me know!
