Top Ten Tuesday: 17 February 2015

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week this group of college aged and twenty somethings provide a prompt so that other book lovers can join in with their own top ten list.

This week's theme is “Ten Book Related Problems I Have”.

  1. I need a really BIG house to hold all my books.
  2. ... because I buy too many books.
  3. ... or I borrow too many from the library at one time.
  4. Having lost two library books while traveling, I have to leave them at home.
  5. I start having “withdrawal” pains when I don't get enough time to read during a day.
  6. I need a big purse so I can carry a book or my Kindle everywhere I go.
  7. Even if I'm not enjoying a book, I feel obliged to finish it.
  8. I'd rather read than sleep, so I stay up too late most nights.
  9. If I start a series in audio, I have to listen to all the other books in the series. Likewise, if I start reading text, I have to continue with text. Fortunately, I don't have a problem mixing eBooks and those printed on paper.
  10. While I usually am reading more than one book at a time, none of them can be in the same genre.

So that's it. Definitely modern world problems, but problems I really don't mind having.


  1. When I shop for a new purse I take my kindle with me so I can make sure it fits. :) fun list today. Kelley at the road goes ever ever on

    1. Kelley, thanks for stopping in and leaving a comment. I adored the way you answered the prompt with the eCard cartoons. It's scary that "Bookish Problems" goes up to at least #163.

  2. I can relate to numbers 10, 7, 5, & 2!!! Here's a link to my TTT for the week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/02/top-ten-tuesday-ten-book-related.html

    1. I'm so glad you left a link to your TTT post. You seem to have similar reading habits -- for YEARS, I packed a small box of books into the back of the car every time we went on vacation. Now I just load up my eReader.

  3. #7. Even if I don't particularly care for the book I usually have to finish it just to see what happens. Great list!


    1. I think I'm just optimistic. Surely the book will get better; after all, so many people liked it! I usually finish out of a sense of obligation.

    1. Yeah. When we downsized 10 years ago, I gave away 10 boxes of books. I still have 4 full book cases and books stacked on the floor in two rooms. Just because I have an eReader doesn't mean I'm willing to let go of the unread printed books in the house!
