    Since there’s a topic ‘you know you’re a writer when….’ I thought it’d be cool to do one for bookworms. ‘Cause we all know most if not all writers are bookworms. So let’s get this rolling!

    You know you’re a bookworm when you feel each emotion of the main character.

    you know you’re a bookworm when limited shelf space makes you depressed.

    @jenwriter17 This is pretty cool.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you finish a book at 6 in the morning because you couldn’t put the book down.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you’re sad the story’s over, because now you have to say goodbye.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you read a book in a day, and then wish you hadn’t read it so fast, because now there’s nothing else to read.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you hate a book so much that you want to throw it across the room, but you restrain yourself because the cover is pretty and you don’t want to hurt it.

    @jenwriter17 You know you’re a bookworm when you get so engrossed in a book that when a character shrugs, you shrug, and when a character bangs his head, you get a headache.

    You know you’re a bookworm if when you were twelve if you were reading your mom had to physically shake you before you could hear her talking. (I trained myself out of that because it was not a useful habit.)

    @rochellaine Oh my goodness I literally did that just yesterday when I was reading A Time to Die, by Nadine Brandes. When the MC sighed, I sighed. When she grinned, I grinned. I hope no one was watching me, lol.

    Lol, I didn’t do that very much, but once in a while when I had a super good book.

    @jenwriter17 Hahaha!  😀 But sometimes I don’t like it, because I have such a fearful imagination that if the character gets hurt, if I am paying enough attention to the story that part of my body will actually start to hurt.  I have several times had to stop reading to rub my “stubbed” toe or pinch the bridge of my nose to cure my “headache”.

    @jenwriter17 You know you’re a bookworm when the tensest, most heartbreaking moments of a book make you get up and start pacing around the room, and the severe losses make you physically start banging the floor.

    @sam-kowal I’ve thought about getting up to pace while reading before, but I didn’t want my family asking me why I was pacing, ’cause it would ruin the suspenseful moment.

    @livgiordano Yes!!!! I have often regretted reading a book too fast XD

    You know you’re a bookworm when you keep wondering what ever happened to the characters after the book ends. This has happened to me with almost every  Kingsbury novel I’ve read XD

    @radically-surrendered I do the same!

    You know you’re a bookworm when one book ends in a major cliffhanger and you’re legitimately mad at the author ’cause the sequel isn’t out yet.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you start talking like the characters in a book

    You know you’re a bookworm when you’re surrounded by people and you suddenly start laughing when you remember your favourite scene from the book you’re reading 😀Or when it happens at school. 😝
