Summary: Do you love books? If so, you’ll probably relate to one or more of these common problems that book lovers face.

Are you someone who can’t get enough of books? Do you wish there was an extra hour built into each day so you could dig into that memoir or novel that you just can’t seem to put down? Previously called nerds or book worms, loving books certainly improves in the “coolness” factor from childhood into adulthood, especially now that many people are focusing on the importance of slowing down and taking time to relax.



If you consider yourself a book lover or a self-proclaimed book worm, then you’ll probably be able to relate to these common problems that only true book lovers can understand:


  1. The urge to buy more books even though you have plenty of unread books at home.
  1. Feeling emotionally attached to or sad for non-existent people.
  1. Rolling your eyes at people who saw the movie but didn’t bother to read the book first, or ever. They just don’t get it.
  1. Wanting to read every book by all your favorite authors but knowing it’s not possible unless you quit your job and read full time.
  1. Finishing a book and then having to wait a year or more for the next one in the series to come out.
  1. Finally getting that next book in the series and completely forgetting what the first book(s) were about.
  1. The book hangover. That feeling when a great book finishes but the story and characters are all you think about and you can’t move on.
  1. Running out of shelf space.
  1. When you say you’ll read just a few more pages before going to bed and suddenly it is two hours later…
  1. Lying in bed all warm under the covers, but your hand is freezing because you have to hold your book out in front of you.
  1. Being forced to stop reading a great book because of other obnoxious obligations … like work.
  1. When your book falls on your face because you’re lying on your back holding it above you.
  1. Trying to decide which books make it into your bag on a trip and which you have to leave behind.
  1. When you’re reading too many books at once and can’t decide which one to pick up when.
  1. Getting interrupted when you’re in the last few pages of a book.

If you’re looking for something new to read but aren’t sure where to start, try something like Goodreads to check out the community (and see what your friends are reading), as well as to save a list of all the books you have read or want to read!
