Hi friends,

For today’s discussion I wanted something funny and I was thinking about how “non readers” must see us, readers in all our glory!

Yes we have odd quirks to people who don’t read anything else than the newspaper and maybe we should come with a “Warning” if some intend to date or marry us! It’s a kind of “take it or leave it” I think!

So what should non readers know about us?

They should know that:


1) There is no such things as too many books! Just be prepared to build us more shelves. And add another room to the house!


2) Characters are real and book boyfriends are the bests. Don’t try to argue or compete it’s a lost battle.


3) My favorite activity on a Friday or Saturday night is not being the queen of the dancefloor nor getting drunk in a pub it’s reading.


4) Of course I am crying! The hero just died!


5) When I say “just one more chapter” what I mean is I’ll stop when the whole book is finished!

6) No when I read alone at lunch I am not being coy nor a damzel waiting to be entertained, I just want to read alone!


7) No Wingardium Leviosa is not some Romanian estranged great grand aunt’s name! It’s a levitation spell!


8) Of course I need that padded rectangular piece of fabric in my handbag! It’s a book sleeve to protect my baby from being hurt!

9) No I am not sad or drunk, I just suffer from a sever book hangover.

Now do tell me, do you have things you’d like to add? Some things your future date or husband should know before trying to date or live with you?

Thanks for reading!

  1. So relatable! The one thing that drives me crazy is when my hubby tries to have a full-blown conversation with me when I am reading. They never get that they are interrupting, do they?!

    1. Hahaha so true Alicia! I can’t tell you how many times I could barely carry my suitcase while attending book events!

  2. The tears I have shed for fictional characters is obscene, and really, a quiet evening with a book is the best evening in my opinion. This was a fun post.

  3. Omg this is just the best idea for a post ever! And it totally agree with all of them! My days of getting drunk and dancing on a weekend are firmly over….give me a book and my pjs any day!!!!@

  4. This made me chuckle but they are all true. If I don’t get my fictional fix I will be grumpy. I don’t think I could sit and read with someone else in the room unless they too were reading so I am going to need my own library in my future house, but tbh I can’t see myself being in a relationship with a non-reader, what would we even talk about?!

    1. Well maybe you’d explain all about your latest book and he (or she) about the latest movie or game? My husband is a non reader or rather non fiction reader and we speak about other things. But I am glad my kids share my passion so that I can gush with someone who understands LOL

  5. Totally true and this made me laugh. My Mom asked me just yesterday if I will ever read all of the books I have. I just had to sigh and admit I have a problem, “Hi, my name is Tracey and I’m a book hoarder…”
