A reader’s world is a completely different world from that of the others. There are people who chew up 5-6 books a day. They are what we call, a bookworm. If you are one such person, then the below-mentioned points are sure to be relatable.
1. Bookworms usually sit with a pen while reading
You read a sentence, it touches you deeply so you go ahead and mark it. It’s that simple. There is a purpose behind it too. You like a statement or paragraph so much that you like to come back to it and read it again, even after finishing a book.
2. Can’t wait for it to be launched!
Just like people wait for a new episode of a series to come out, bookworms wait for the launch of new book.
3. Bookworms will always have a book with them wherever they go
Whether they are out for a job interview or are just going out to hangout with friends, the book has to accompany them wherever they go. Please don’t think they are showing off. Some do but not all.
4. Ugh! I have to get rid of a few t-shirts to make a place for my books
Bookworms have more books than clothes to wear. It’s not an exaggeration. All you will see in their house/room is books.
5. They will know exactly where to buy books in cheaps
Imagine buying 5-6 books to read in a day. It’s a costly affair. Which is why, since they read so many books, they have already hunted every bookstall that sells books in cheap. Don’t be surprised even if they tell you the exact prices of books.
6. Bookworms keep things in their books
No matter how clichéd this sounds, they definitely have a habit of keeping things in between the pages of the books. It can be anything right from rose petals (obviously), to money, to even small chits.
7. They treat their books as their own babies
If you are borrowing a book from a bookworm, be very careful of not dropping anything on it or not damaging it in any way. If you do, you will be in for havoc! Bookworms are very careful with their books.
8. A person who gifts them books is their all-time favorite
If you love a bookworm, then you know the best way to make him/her happy. If you want to be loved by a bookworm, gift them books.
9. My books are my best friends
Bookworms don’t feel the need to talk to anybody when they have a book in hand. You can leave them alone for hours without talking to them and then won’t even be affected by it.
10. They eat drink sleep and breathe books!
