What the others don’t understand is that you don’t simply like the act of reading, you love it. And it’s probably the time when you are happiest. Not to mention the unbounded joy of finding a friend who is a bibliophile just like you! So here’s a couple of things, that I’m sure all you book lovers out there will be able to understand and relate to.

1. Going to a bookstore and only coming out when you’re broke

2. Smelling books
