My Top 3 #ReaderProblems

Getting Comfortable

Have you ever sat down to read, then had to readjust, and then again. It’s like a never ending cycle of I’m comfy, wait no I’m not. I’ll be nice and happy reading, then my arm falls asleep, my leg falls asleep, or I fall asleep…

I’ll try and read in every place in my house. I’ll be on my bed, then the computer chair, the couch, and even the floor. But, there is always something that makes me uncomfortable. I’m like a fish out of water flopping all over the place, it makes it really hard to read if I’m the only one awake, because I like to read in my room. Have you ever tried to flop around for comfort and also had to try to be quiet? It’s not easy.

If someone knows the secret to reading comfort let me know.

Lost Bookmarks

If there’s one sentence I hate saying it’s where’s my bookmark? I can never keep track of my bookmarks. I’ll end up finding them in strange places like under the bed or behind my desk. I hate when I get a cute or special bookmark and it’s gone the same day. I feel like my ability to lose bookmarks ties in with my discomfort we talked about a second ago. I’m constantly moving and leaving my bookmarks behind, plus I have a one year old and I’m sure he’s hoarding bookmarks somewhere.

It’s a good thing anything can be used as a bookmark. My last makeshift bookmark was my debit card 😅

Movie Tie In Covers

Yes, the dreaded movie tie in of The Hobbit, complete with “Now A Major Motion Picture” title…

I love going to bookstores and browsing, but you know what I don’t love? Movie Tie In book covers. There is nothing worse than hearing yeah, we have one copy left, then when they bring it, it has the horrible movie cover on the front. I know this is a total bratty first world problem but it’s so annoying that they’d ruin a good book with an ugly cover. I have such a hard time adhering to “don’t judge a book by its cover” when it actually comes to books. If I’m desperate I’ll totally buy a movie tie in, but it’ll be an eye sore on my bookshelf, and I will spend the money to buy a better looking copy just for the shelf.

  1. I can relate to all of these. I really don’t like loosing my bookmarks especially if it’s one I really like. My reading position is always changing as I usually read in my room and I can be quite fidgety and I love having my books with matching covers and a lot of the time I prefer the original covers instead of the movie versions!
