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 youreadtoomuch@gmail.com.

I don’t know what made me make this spur of the moment purchase, but I’m glad I did. An actor who’s work I enjoy, and I’m actually enjoying is writing as well. My recommendation of the day: read an autobiography. It may surprise you how much you enjoy it.

A book by cassandra Clare Called city of heavenly fire is being released may 27th 2014 the problem is that i have a maths exam about 1 or 2 weeks after I know that if i pre order it that i won't be able to hold back because of my excitment and that the book will prevent me from revising as i MUST pass this exam The book will be a HUGE distraction and will take long to read Even if i read it and find time to revise i still won't be able to concentrate or take my mind off it during the exam

Ah. The dreaded pain of forcing yourself to wait. Beneficial to your academics, but still sucks greatly. I wish you luck on your upcoming exam, and I’m sure you’ll be able to handle waiting.

Get the book. I did when I wanted to read Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead. Just get it but don’t read it. After you finish your exam put reading it as your reward.

I had a chemistry final that day, when the book was released.

I would suggest getting the book, and giving it to someone you can trust not to let you have it until you finish the exam! That way you have it, but won’t be tempted to read it while you should be studying!xx -Sammi

In 8th grade I had a teacher who, if he caught you reading, would take your book away, read the ending, then threaten to tell you the ending if he caught you reading it again

As a reader, I disapprove.
As a future teacher… I kinda approve…

Re-post of #133 as we messed up the words ‘manga’ and ‘anime’ sorry for any confusion!

Whoops

Back on Reason 133, it was “you know how to read anime…” Well, it looks like I got jumpled up in my wording, and I gave Sammi false information, too. It’s supposed to be “manga.” 

I really do feel bad about this, and I promise that, when it gets added to numeric order, it will be changed. Mistakes happen. Now, I’m going to go and give all of my manga books to someone who actually knows what they’re called.
