Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is: Ten Book Related Problems I Have (could be serious or fun!) Since there is always an option 'C', I've gone with both!
Potential bankruptcy if my addiction to book buying gets any worse.
Things are getting bad, folks!
* Sobs uncontrollably *
It's even worse if the books are all within the same series! Just look at my Unearthly trilogy books... it's creating a LADDER!!
* Feels my perfectionist blood beginning to boil again *
The lack of an eighth day of the week, exclusively for reading.
Dog ears, stains from food or drink, and HIGHLIGHTING or WRITING in a book! Blurgh!
This is partly why I avoid library books like the plague. There is nothing worse than finding unidentifiable 'stuff' sticking the pages together. *Vomits*
With the highlighting and writing on books... I was forced to do this in school, and it crushed my soul every time I had to write on a book in English class. *Shudders*
People that refuse to leave me alone when I’m reading!
I have a book in my hands, how hard is it to...
So… you want to borrow one of my books.
No, you will not TOUCH my books, and you will CERTAINLY NOT borrow one.
They. Are. MINE!
This is clearly the only time over-protectiveness is acceptable...
Obsessively reorganizing my books…
... so the order only makes sense to me! What’s the fun in organization if you can’t confuse people?! Plus, if nobody can FIND a book, they won’t want to borrow it from me! Win / Win.
Getting extremely anxious when the books you ordered weeks ago haven’t shown up in the post.
I’m currently suffering from this one. The Books Depository better not fail me now! It’s over two weeks since I’ve ordered and seven books haven’t shown up… I’m beginning to panic!!
Lack of sleep
I’m slowly turning into a zombie. I can’t function before noon ‘cause I’ve been up reading until 4 am the night before… And I don’t regret it for a minute!
