You know you're a book junkie if...

May 10, 2011

Admit it, you’ve got a problem.  We all do.  That’s why we’re here, isn’t it?  To feed the addiction?  Get a fix?  I know, my friends, and I understand.  I, too, am a book junkie.  I embrace it fully and announce it proudly, as we all should. I realize that some of you may be hesitant to accept the moniker of “junkie”.  Some of you may prefer the milder, gentler term of “reader”.  So, I’ve devised a little test for you called “You Might Be a Book Junkie If…" You Might Be a Book Junkie If…
  1. You’ve ever left the house with your book, but not your wallet.
  2. You’d rather read than watch TV – even “Dancing with the Stars”.
  3. You have read for more than four hours straight and didn’t feel guilty about it.
  4. You look forward to long waits at the DMV and doctor’s office because it gives you uninterrupted reading time.
  5. You’ve ever told yourself “just one more chapter before I start dinner” and ending up having to go out to dinner because it got too late to cook.
  6. You remember the details of how your favorite hero and heroine met, but not you and your husband/boyfriend.
  7. You find the last page of a book both satisfying and melancholy.
  8. It is a sad day when you get to the end of series and realize that now you will have to wait (gasp!) for the next book to be published.
  9. You actually KNOW the publication date of the next book by a favored author.
  10. You have shot someone the Evil Eye or snapped at your children because they had the nerve to interrupt you during the climax of your book.
If any of the above appears strikingly familiar to you, take heart, for you are among friends.  Here at fictiondb is where you will find acceptance.  No judgment, just understanding.  If you are a book junkie, feel free to leave a post.  Let us know how and when you knew that you were more than just a “reader” but were a full-fledged, book-toting “junkie”.
