#Book Riot: How to Spot a #Reader

I love to read, so you can imagine how much I enjoyed this post when I read it today! There was no official reblog option on it, but it was so good I wanted to share it with you. You can read the original post here on Book Riot.

How to Spot a Reader:

1.) They know more than you do… about everything.

2.) They often use words that you secretly have to look up later.

3.) They have magical cards that get them books for free.

4.) They speak the names of people whom you’ve never met; who live in different countries, who lived in other centuries.

5.) Their purse/bag/briefcase is always a bit heavier than yours (which you later find out is equivalent to the weight of a book).

6.) They know the endings to many of the newest movies before they’ve even seen them.

7.) They give you a sympathetic smile when you mention that the last book you read was two summers ago…  and it had a half naked man (or woman) on the front.

8.) Their bookshelves are covered in books instead of pictures of them.

9.) They have bookshelves.

10.) They do things that you wouldn’t do, such as reading lists about how to spot a reader.

Question: Are you a reader? Do you love to read? What are some of YOUR favourite books?
