Seema M. Fazil (brotherlyloveisbeautiful) | 25 comments I know, dumb question. But I'm just wondering cos it sometimes happens to me. Does it happen to you too? I hope I'm not the only one. Sometimes I feel I'm the only bookworm in the world.

Kiri Fiona (kirifiona) | 5 comments I cried some pretty genuine tears when Amazon told me the book I wanted to buy was not available in my country (NZ.) My book funk didn't last long - I always find something new on here :)

Pheonix | 7 comments I sometimes used to cry when my boyfriend would distract me from my books. like seriously let me reads. I love you but the book is here and I just wanna read. lol. he has gotten much better lol. now he asks "want me to get off PlayStation or do you wanna read?" lol Love that he knows me so well now.

Kiri Fiona (kirifiona) | 5 comments Lol Pheonix - I used to feel the same way. My boyfriend used to say 'you're always mad at me when you're reading' - I felt so guilty. Or kind of guilty, anyway.

Maybe not guilty at all :s

Esther (eshchory) | 117 comments It has been so long since I have been without a book. If the worst happens and I finish my book too quickly I read something on my phone or if the battery has died I buy another book (with my over-flowing shelves I try not to do that too often)

But I do get a little panic attack when I think of all the lovely books I have on my shelves and how little time I have to read them.

Tammy | 231 comments I always have something to read, I do reread but I admit sometimes I go through a nothing seems to satisfy mood. Kind of like the feeling of nothing to wear when you have a closet full of clothes.

Groovy Lee | 428 comments Okay, I have to ask:

Why would you cry because of nothing to read? Your Kindle should be loaded with to-read books. There's a library on every corner. Why are you crying?:)


She who must not be named (she_who_must_not_be_named) | 33 comments Not when I don't have a book to read. I'm completely depressed when I know I have a million books I could read, but instead am forced to concentrate on mundane things like school. In situations like that, yes, I have cried. For some reason, my family does not understand that I cannot function unless I read a little everyday *sigh*
Anybody out there like me?
