Me when I spontaneously spend too much money on books

Originally posted by eu-sunt

Whenever I buy a new book I just want to show it off to the whole world. Look how pretty my paper package of pain and tears is. So shiny.

Me: “I love reading!!”

Person: “Oh cool, what do you read?”

Me, sweating nervously: “Oh haha…just…uh…books.”

So I’m a huge book lover and I keep asking my parents for books but they refuse and say that I should be doing something more useful and just don’t seem to understand how much I love reading and how important it actually is??

So could you please reblog this with something that would convince them or that would make them realize the importance of literature/reading bc I’m running out of ideas. Thanks!

I love reading, but I hate when I finish a book and there’s that empty feeling you get. It’s like you lived a life that you loved so much and it ended and now you have to find a new life, but don’t want to leave your old one. Does anybody else feel this?
