8 Signs You Might Be a Book Addict…

I don’t consider myself to be addicted to books. But apparently my sister thinks I might have a problem. She refuses to buy me books for my birthday or Christmas because she doesn’t want to enable me. Whilst the conversation was in jest and I’m sure she was joking (or at least I’m pretty sure), I thought it’d be fun to make a list of things you may do if you are truly a book addict.

There have been weeks when you spend more money on books than food or rent. 

You consider an entire afternoon organizing your bookshelves to be time well spent.

The staff at your local book store know you by name. 

It’s not at all unusual to stay up till 4am just so you can finish a book. (Just. One. More. PAGE!)

You have difficulty remembering the birthdays of your loved ones and yet have the release dates for your favourite authors memorized! 


Those are my seven reasons. If you have any more signs you might be a book addict – I’d LOVE to hear them!

Happy Friday and I hope you all have a great weekend 🙂


  1. I think I only have 1 of these problems. I refuse to watch a film adaptation unless I’ve read the novel.
    sometimes I don’t know there is a novel so that can get tricky… :/
    And yeah I have stayed up RATHER late MANY times just finishing a book!

  2. This is such a fantastic post, Kate – absolutely spot on! I can relate to all of these (obviously, I’m a book addict), except for struggling to remember friends/family members birthdays/etc – I’m surprisingly good at remembering important dates like that.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂
