Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.

Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!


February 17: Ten Book Related Problems I Have (could be serious or fun!)


1. Audible reactions. Laugh, gasp, or talk to a book in public, and people notice.

2. Interruptions. Why does reading in public lead to people asking what you’re reading? I don’t know, but it does.

3. Impossible Goals. How many books can you read in a lifetime? Not enough.

4. Letting go. The series is over, and you’re not ready to be done with the characters. Re-reading only dulls the pain.

5. Never-ending series. Some series you don’t want to end, but others you wish they had, because the newer books don’t appeal the same.

6. One More Page-itis. Late nights, missed connections, and a variety of tardiness can all be blamed on reading just one more page.

7. Recommendations. Sometimes you recommend a book you really want someone to read, and they don’t. Conversely, sometimes people recommend a book that you read, and then doubt how well they know you.

8. Packing. It’s reasonable to bring three books on a weekend trip, right?

9. Purses. Who would make a bag that doesn’t at least fit a paperback? And if you want to carry around a big hardback, forget about it.

10. Shelf Space. There’s never enough room, even if you get rid of books. The only solution would be to stop buying them, and that’s not happening.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    The packing issue is one of the reasons I love my kindle. It’s great to pack one little book knowing that I can have lots of choice ready downloaded onto it.

    I frequently stay up to late due to one more page-itis! Very bad indeed.

  3. My twin and I have a rule: If one of us laughs out loud while reading, he has to share the humor with the other one.
