We've all done one or more of these things when it comes to books. See how many of them you recognize in yourself. And ask us things! We love getting new ideas for "reasons," and we love seeing people who like the reasons. If you want one of your reasons up, just ask and we'd be happy to make you one. Or email Em your requests at email@example.com.

Me: But I have about fifty books at home I haven't read, there's no reason for me to buy these.
My brain: Okay, but consider this: more books.
Sorry, guys, to have disappeared for a while. I’ve been busy with horse stuff lately, and I’m trying to think of more reasons. Also, I haven’t forgotten about the contest… I just lost the books in the packing of my bedroom before I paint.
So I’ve been busy. But I’ll keep reblogging anything book related that crawls across my dash.
I love you, my little book addicts.
When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.
WHEN AUTHORS SAY THEY DONT KNOW WHAT HAPPENS TO THEIR CHARACTERS AFTER THE BOOK ENDS?? YES YOU DO. YES YOU DO STOP.
Anyone worried about the death of the printed word need only spend some time exploring Tumblr to be virtually surrounded by so many good people who talk, photograph, smell, breathe, love books. Stacks and piles and shelves and lives filled with books, books, books. I look with wonder at this community of people bound by poems and stories, and I smile, grateful to you all.
Are you guys okay with my random reblogs while I have no reasons made or on the list? Because, if so, I’ll post more to keep the blog active. Also, so you guys want to see what I’m reading? See my book obsessions? Tell me things! I feel bad that I don’t give out as much content as I used to. Plus, we hit 1,119 followers!! I love each of you addicts so much!!!
Do you ever start a book and realize within the first few pages you’re in for a world of heartache?
I think it’s about time for another giveaway. What do you guys think? Want a chance for more free books?
