Recognisable

The signs you’re an absolute bookworm!

I myself love books. Yes, I write my own, but I also read tons. Okay, maybe a little less than I used to because I’m very busy with writing. But, I used to read many fantasy books and still have some unread ones on my bookshelf. I dare to say I’m a bookworm, and if you are too, you should recognise the following signs/traits!

  1. I’m trying to steer clear of social media for the time being, and focus solely on books, reading books and learning about books. Love the feeling of it, and the satisfaction of getting to the last page! Thanks for the insight and words into this topic!

  2. Can we make book tailgating a thing? Like seriously, I’d be sooo down! 🤣 Seriously, though… This was more of a checklist than an article for me 😄
