a bookworm thing

May the last inch of tea in your mug still be warm.
—  Because I know you forgot about it while you were reading.
  • Me, thrift store shopping: *sees copy of book I already own*
  • Brain: Buy it.
  • Me: Why?
  • Brain: You gotta.
  • Me: ...
  • Brain: If you don't, someone else might buy it first.
  • Me: *Panics and buys it*
The Houses as Bookworms
  • Gryffindor: absolutely adores books but still wishes they read more, takes really aesthetic book photos, doesn’t waste their time on a book they know they won’t like, pretty critical about book to movie adaptations, considers other people’s reviews before picking up a book, reads their books in class even when they probably shouldn’t, loves borrowing books from others
  • Hufflepuff: will plow through book after book and then not read for an entire month, attempts to organize books alphabetically or by colour but in the end just tries to squeeze them in anywhere, probably re-reads more old books than they read new books, only presents they want are books, may not finish books super quickly but loves them nonetheless
  • Ravenclaw: reads books at an alarming rate, can and will read on any form of transportation, wears glasses, instead of listening to music they’re actually listening to audio books, starts reading a good book but then gets distracted by another and completely forgets about the old one, usually critical of the protagonist.
  • Slytherin: attempts to read over 20 books at the same time, ships everything, loves it when they’re friends read a book that they recommend,they have to finish the whole series no matter what, gets defensive when someone doesn’t recognize them as a reader, wants to read all the books their friends have read so they can contribute their own opinions to discussions
  • Policeman, writing in his notebook: So, would you say you were distracted at the time of the crash?
  • Me: Well, I mean, maybe just a little.
  • Policeman *exasperated*: Ma'am, you ran straight off the road. Were you distracted or drunk?
  • Me: ...
  • Policeman: ...
  • Me: I saw a bookstore I've never been to.
  • Policeman, writing in his notebook again: I see...
I’m not truly sick until I can’t focus enough to enjoy a good book.
—  Then I’m dying. Send the medics
  • Baz: Wait...so you like me back?
  • Simon: There's no denying that I have feelings for you that can't be explained in any other way.
  • Baz: *blushes*
  • Simon: I briefly considered that I had a brain parasite, but that seems even more far-fetched.
  • Baz: ....

Sleep less…

[When I finish my exams I’ll have so many books to catch up with! It’s both thrilling and scary.]

Shout out to the readers whose parents and/or family don’t support their reading habits. For every time you were told you are wasting your time filling your head with nonsense and you should be doing something more productive. For all those times they told you they’re not wasting any more money on books for you and for every time they told you to stop wasting your own money on books. For every time they called you weird and blamed books for giving you “ideas”. For all those whose parents wanted proof that you were reading a book for class and not for pleasure. For every time they took away your book and forced you to go do something else and for the times they threatened to throw away or burn your books. To all those whose parents strictly controlled what you read. Your interest in reading is valid. Be a rebel. Read.
