Top Ten Tuesday ~ Book Related Problems

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by 

This weeks topic: Book Related Problems

10 ~ I Am A Swag Addict!
I'll admit it, I love the swag!  I also love to share the swag and pass on the love.  I need to do another giveaway soon to do just that.  

9 ~ I won't read a book if I saw the movie first.
This is true 99% of the time.  I hate knowing what is going to happen in a book (unless I am doing a re-read on my own) and it ruins all the fun of a good book.  I have to read the book before the movie or I will never do it.

8 ~ Books have BIG WORDS!
I was doing my list and my 9yo popped up and said "Books have big words I don't know.  That's my problem!"  I have to admit, I occasionally still have that problem as well. 

7 ~ Anything over 500 pages is just too long.
This one belongs to Beighley.  He doesn't like the long books and won't read anything over 500 pages anymore.

6 ~ I judge a lot of books by their cover.
I do this, and it probably isn't the best idea because there are so many books out there that are probably great but if I hate the cover, I rarely give them a chance.  

5 ~ I don't read fast enough.
This is a problem I know I have touched on before.  I am a slow reader.  Mostly it is due to the fact that I used to hate reading (this is true) until about 9 years ago.  Now I love it, but it's hard for me to keep up, at least that's how I feel.

4 ~ Waiting for the next book in a series.
I HATE waiting for the next book in a series.  I have actually put off reading books just because I know they are a series and I don't want to wait.

3 ~ Too many books, not enough time.
This is one that goes along somewhat with #5, but seriously, does anyone out there feel like they have enough time to read?

2 ~ Not enough shelf space.
I think this is a common problem among book lovers.  Not enough space for all the books.  I just cleaned my shelves and sold some to the used book store and gave some away to friends and I am almost back up to capacity thanks to my #1 problem...

1 ~ Book Buying!
You know you all do it too.  I have a serious problem buying all the pretty books.  They want to come live with me.  They like my house.  We have cookies here. 

There's my top ten for the week.  What are your bookish problems?


  1. I have an opposite problem from your #7; I have a hard time really sinking my teeth into something that's too short. I love nothing better than a deliciously long door-stopper I can climb into and just live in for a few weeks. I'm not a fan of the trend towards short books, and wish there were more traditionally-published books well over 500 pages.

  2. Nice list of book related problems!! I don't usually like reading books after seeing the movie. Maybe that's why I haven't read any of the Harry Potter novels??? Here's a link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-related.html
