The Struggles of Being a Book Worm

Hey everybody! So for those of you who have been around since I started this blog, you probably remember the post that I did about the struggles of eating out. (I think it was like my second post πŸ˜‚ you should check it out) Anyway. For today’s post I have decided to do a part two of “The Struggles of…”, but this time about being a bookworm. Because let’s face it. Being a bookworm is really hard!


Struggle # 1: when someone interrupts you while you are reading.

Ugh. I cringe just thinking about this. Now I’m sure we have all been there, where you are just enjoying your book, not wanting to strike a conversation with anybody. And then… BAM! Some random person comes up to talk to you. Maybe they will ask what book you are reading (that’s the worst especially if they aren’t readers themselves) or they will just start talking about something random. I recently went through one of these situations, and it left me internally gagging. Storytime! So a few days ago I was at an event, and I was reading my book. (I’m so social) And as I was reading, this girl walked up to me and out of the blue says “Hannah. I broke my pop socket!” To which I responded “oh no! That stinks.” I made sure to quickly turn back to my book so that she saw that I was busy reading. But ohhhh no. She’s didn’t take the hint! She continued on talking about her broken pop socket for I kid you not, FIVE MINUTES. The entire time I was giving her a clenched smile, and when she finally left, I was about to explode.

Struggle # 2: having a conversation about a book with a non-reader

This is probably one of the most awkward things any book worm will ever go through. Similar to the first struggle, these conversations usually begin when someone asks what book you are reading. Now if this were any other person that I knew was a bookworm, I would have been happy to explain what the book is about. But if this is a person that I know is definitely not a reader, I tend to hesitate a little more. Because here’s the thing. Even though they asked what the book was about, the moment you start explaining it, they get these weirded out faces like “what the actual heck is this girl talking about.” And then you have to say a million times “it’s not cheesy I promise, you just have to read it.”

Struggle # 3: wanting to buy books but not having enough money

Guys. I have a confession. I don’t have gobs of money to spend on books. And I really wish I did. It’s so hard to go to a book store because I want to buy everything, but I have like two dollars. I just look at every single book and whisper “I’ll come back for you…”

Hahahaha! I was laughing so hard while writing this post πŸ˜‚. Thanks so much for reading! Comment down below if you can relate to any of these. Also let me know if you want me to continue doing “The struggles of…” posts. I really like writing them and I hope you guys enjoy them. Anyway that’s all!

Byeeeee! Xoxoxoxo

  2. This is all so true! It totally sucks when you’re engrossed in a brand new book (or visiting with an old favorite) and someone barges in your space, interrupting time that is sacred.
