#1 WHEN YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE SOCIALIZING
There comes a time in every reader’s life that they find themselves declining social invitations because they would prefer a night alone at home to read a new exciting book that has been taking forever to be released!
“Hey Sally, Do you want to come out tonight?”
“No, I cant. My cat is sick, I am sick, we are all sick…. *Cough* *Cough*”
#2 WHEN A FRIEND RETURNS A BOOK DAMAGED OR DOESN’T AT ALL.
This is an age old problem! When our friends do not respect the property we lend out to them. In the case of a reader, the book is returned with pages folded or mangled. It is returned in less than perfect condition. This is almost just as bad as not returning the book at all! Every reader has been here a time or two if they have the habit of lending out their books. Let us all have a moment of sympathy for our ruined books.
#3 WHEN YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH A FICTIONAL CHARACTER
Books play on the passion, emotion, and feelings of readers; therefore, it is inevitable to fall in love with a fictional character. This can happen quite often! Who has not been guilty of falling in love with characters in the books they most enjoyed? There is some heart wrenching perfection in literature. I am definitely guilty!
#4 WHEN THEY HAVE SEEN THE MOVIE BUT NOT READ THE BOOK
The most frustrating part of this scenario is the movie watcher usually acts like they know everything about the plot and characters. This comes across as arrogant when they have not even bothered to read the literature. Please read the book before acting like you posses more knowledge of it than the person who has read the movie’s book. They know more in most cases! Books dive deeper than movies are able to accomplish. This is just fact.
#5 CAN’T DECIDE WHICH BOOK TO BUY IN THE BOOK STORE
When a reader is shopping through a book store and just cannot decide which books they want. This can turn into hours! It is so difficult deciding which books to pick. The readers starts out in their favorite genre’s section and just are stumped. Admit it. You have been there before!
