Reader Struggles

As readers, we all have these struggles that I am sure most of us can relate to. Here is a list of 10 struggles I have that come along with being an avid reader. You can probably relate to some of these as well!

1. Choosing your next current read.
Either you have tons of books you really want to read or you have tons of books and you still feel like you have nothing to read.


2. Finishing a book that you absolutely loved and finding out that no one else you know has read it.


3. Staying up really late to finish a book and being dead the next day.


4. When people can clearly see that you are trying to read but won't stop trying to start up a conversation.


5. Checking out way too many books from the library and knowing most will have to be returned unread. 


6. Finding a comfortable reading position that will last you at least 2 minutes.


7. When you receive a gift card for books and take forever deciding which book(s) to buy.


8. Running out of room on your bookshelves but knowing that you won't stop buying books.



9. Seeing someone reading in public and going to extreme lengths to try and see what they are reading. 


10. You have to bring a book with you (or multiple books) everywhere you go just in case you have time to read.


I had a lot of fun making this post so I hope you guys enjoyed this one!

Do you relate to any of these readers struggles? What struggles do you have as a reader? Any I forgot to mention?

  7. OMG! I agree with all of these! Especially going to extreme lengths to see what someone's reading. Every time I'm on the subway there's that ONE PERSON reading that one book AND I MUST KNOW WHAT THEY ARE READING! But I am not a person who can just walk up and ask Hey,what'cha reading? No, I am a shadowhunter, assassin, demigod witch! So, I (discreetly) do all sorts of things to find out what they are reading. It sometimes works. Sometimes, it's easier to just wait until they get up cuz it's their stop and have to close the book. It's easiest to peek at the cover then. :D
    Awesome post!

    1. Haha! I loved this comment. I also never go up to anyone and ask. I just move around creepily to try and get a peek! ;) Thanks so much, Fari!

  8. Jacquelyn, this list is so accurate, it's scary. (I mean that in a very good way!) I am already out of bookshelf space but haha, I will probably never stop getting books. Also, the library thing: something I used to to...a lot.

  9. Haha, yes, some of these things are so accurate!

    So many books that it's hard to pick your new read.
    People interrupting you.
    Always bringing at least 1 book with you.
