10 Signs of Book Addiction

I borrowed this from The Story Siren:

10 signs of Book Addiction

I have a problem.... do you? If you find yourself nodding your head to any of these statements, you might suffer from Book Addiction. Don't worry you are not alone.

You might be a book addict if:
  1. You buy your purses based on how many books you can fit inside. [ALWAYS. The smallest purse I own can fit a small paperback. The largest purse I own can fit five hardbacks.]
  2. The Fed Ex and UPS carriers, know you by name. [Well, no. They tend to drop and run.]
  3. Your family refuses to buy you books because they don't want to support your habit. [My family rarely buys me books. This last birthday was an exception.]
  4. You own multiple versions of the same book. [Yes. Mostly books I love like The Lord of The Rings, Henry James, Shakespeare, etc.]
  5. You dream about books. (Getting them... meeting the authors that write them.) [Yes. I've had dreams about being BFFs with authors.]
  6. You always have at least one book on you at all times. Even if it's just a quick trip to the dollar store. [Like I said, my purses are important. If I don't bring a book, it's like not bringing my cellphone: I fidget and worry.]
  7. You usually help shoppers at the bookstore, because you are more knowledgeable than the staff. [LOL no, sorry. But I do know my local Borders like the back of my hand.]
  8. You've been known to skip family functions or outings with friends because you can't stop reading. [Would I actually admit to that?]
  9. There are books in every room of your house. [Hm well no but I share my house with several other people who steal books.]
  10. If you are within five miles of a bookstore, you find yourself drawn to it like a homing device from the mothership. [YES YES YES YES TAKE ME MASTERS.]
Score: 6/10.

I feel that reposting this would acknowledge that in some way this behaviour is not normal. AND I DON"T KNOW WHAT YOU"RE TALKING ABOUT DOESN"T EVERYONE GET BOOKS DROPPED OFF AT THEIR WORK BY HELPFUL UPS MEN WHO KNOW WHERE THEY LIVE AND WORK?
