    😀 I was in the waiting room of a hospital ( I wasn’t ill or anything) and was reading a really good book. It’s called Addison Blakey: Confessions of a Pk and at one point I’m sure I was laughing out loud. I don’t know what the people at the hospital were thinking 😄

    You know you’re a bookworm when you can’t stop laughing at a joke a character made, then you look up and realize your sister thinks you’re laughing at her.

    You know you are a bookworm when you used to hide books around the house to sneak in a couple paragraphs whenever you have the chance. And sometimes you still do it if it is a really good book.

    You know you are a bookworm when the only conversations starter you have is, “So, have you read any good books lately?”

    You know you are a bookworm when it is an inside joke among your friends how much you love books, especially since 75% of your friends are in your book club.

    You know you are a bookworm when you’ve out-read your library’s YA section.

    You know you are a bookworm when you figure out that the reason your library only has books 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, but never the first book in a series, is because they are conspiring against you to make your life miserable. (I’m onto you, library.)

    You know you are a bookworm when you wonder what other people think about in their free time, if they aren’t thinking about books. (Seriously, I want to know. If I am doing something that doesn’t require much concentration, then I will think about books/my-book/movies. What does everyone else think about? It must be so boring!)

    If you guys haven’t figured it out yet, I am a HUGE bookworm.

    @jenwriter17 🙂 I know what you mean. That’s exactly what happened to me. My brother was like… ‘Bro, what on earth?’

    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.

    I used to do this all the time when I read the Magic Tree House books. Whenever Jack shuddered, I shuddered. And all the things he did. XD I do that when I write too.

    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 LOL. I’m trying to imagine you and Stan doing that…

    @pickupyourpenandwrite Maybe something along the lines of, “Should we take this girl in?”

    @princessfoo XD I wonder about that all the time. What do people do if they aren’t writing or reading or drawing or guitaring or pianoing… or homeschooling. Everything else is boring or annoying.

    You know you’re a bookworm when new bookshelves is the bestest thing ever and you spend hours and hours trying to work out how to rearrange the books. xP

    You know you’re a bookworm when you go to your mom and say, “Mom, I need to get a new bookshelf soon.”

    You know you’re a bookworm (and obsessed with LOTR) when your best friend gets you the complete collection of illustrated Lord of the Rings book for your birthday. I was so happy.

    You know you’re a bookworm when you find a good book and never put it down, not even when eating, and all that week you barely sleep, and when you’re finished you think, “Wow, what an accomplishment! I should get a life now. Lol, no not really, where’s the next book?”

    @rochellaine I listen to audiobooks and I find myself moving my hands and making faces when walking around the house. I don’t think my family has caught me doing it yet 😉

    You know you’re a bookworm when you try to find themes in everything, not just books

    You know you’re not a bookworm when you look at your bookshelf, shrug and say “Meh.”

    You know you’re a bookworm when finishing a novel or a series leaves you in a depressed state for at least a month..
