Book Nerd Problems

So, I love lists. It's true. I have 195 lists in my Listography account. (I wish I were lying.) I just.. love them. And I stumbled across this list of 99 Book Nerd Problems, and I found SO MANY of them to be relevant to myself and my reading habits. It's so nice to know you're not alone in some of your nerdy idiosyncrasies. What were most relevant to you?

Here are a few that are particularly true for me:

1. You’ll never get to read your favorite book again for the first time.
4. No boss will let you take a sick day because Beth March just died.
11. Those blank pages at the end of old books that trick you into thinking you’ve got more left than you actually do.
17. Purses that can’t fit even a paperback.
38. The inability to stop telling people how it *really* happened when they’re trying to watch an adaptation.
42. The way J.K. Rowling made us all into self-loathing Muggles.
50. Dropping a book on your face while reading on your back.
56. Mispronouncing words because you’ve never actually heard them out loud—you’ve only read them in books.
70. Finishing the best book ever before anyone else you know, and having no one to talk to about it.
82. The unfair stigma attached to books included on required-reading lists.
89. The concern that some of the books in your house have become load-bearing stacks.
90. A book haul that overcomes the tensile strength of your tote bag.
92. The inescapable urge to thump the back of every wardrobe you encounter.
93. Publicly snort laughing at jokes written 150 years ago.
99. Nobody ever wants to help you move.
