Reading Addiction Tote
Sometimes I am guilty of paying too much attention to my book and not enough to the real world.
In the interests of public service I have compiled the following useful list:
The top 10 reasons to suspect you might have a reading 'problem'.
1 - Your husband (wife/ housemate/ child) 'accidentally' sits on your Kindle three times in one day.
2 - Your husband (wife/ housemate/ child) seems visibly frustrated when your device is still functional after 'accident' number three.
3 - You find yourself reaching for a jumper in the middle of summer because 'Winter is coming'.
4 - You don't sleep for nights at a time because you happen to be reading a trilogy and you NEED to know what happens.
5 - You take the day off work to finish some DIY at home only to find by dusk you have nothing to show for it but a finished book.
6 - You ask someone to hide your book from you so you can cook dinner.
7 - You search the house, find your book and read it while stirring the pasta sauce. (The bottom of the pan is supposed to be black, right?)
8 - You pretend to go to the toilet to read 'just a few more pages'. Your family suspects irritable bowel.
9 - If you find yourself 'bookless' for more than a day, you begin to exhibit symptoms similar to those of a panic attack.
10 - You lie awake at night worrying that you are addicted to reading before downloading a book on the subject of addiction.... just to be sure.
