Reading, while incredibly awesome and we will love it no matter what, is not without struggles. As the Olympics have wrapped up and we learned all about the obstacles our athletes have had to overcome, here is a sample of some issues that face an under-rated species of human – the book-lovers.
Being tired all day because you spent your night up reading until the wee hours of the morning.
When the plot twist that forever changes your life happens…
…and you have to clear your schedule for the day.
When you want to read but some force of absolute evil is stopping you.
Similarly, when someone keeps trying to converse with you and it is not okay.
Having to wait for sequels.
When you’re forced to buy a second copy of a book because you’re wearing out your first one.
Getting legitimately angry with a fictional character.
On the other hand, when characters are so awesome you wish they existed in real life.
When you want to know what happens to the characters after the book ends but there’s no follow-up.
Reading a hilarious book in public and attempting to keep your cool.
A slippery sleeve on a hardcover book that just won’t cooperate.
When your bookmark escapes.
Looking anti-social because you want to bond with the characters in your book instead.
Knowing there will always be more books to fuel your obsession.
