Five of the Happy Signs You’re a Book Nerd

March 30, 2020 24 Comments

Pretty sure we all have a list, a list that signifies us as a book lover. Maybe it’s not down on paper, but it lives in our minds as the signs we’re one of those people. Yes, that’s right, it’s all about the “signs you’re a book lover.” We know we all have one.

LIST | 20 of the Sweetest Spring-Time Romance Movies

There are some distinct things on these sorts of checklists, most of which I feel is pretty darn universal. At least they “feel” as if they are. I have a feeling those of us who have a list like this will relate to each other’s list points. I feel as though my list is rather small, but nonetheless there are certainly a few things that seem to point to a love of being, well, a book lover.

1: Cover Buys!

I am 1000% percent guilty of this. Not sure if it’s a good thing, but I continuously pick up reads that sway me by their cover design. Here’s a few of my recent pre-buys:

Books: The Code for Love and Heartbreak (at least I think I pre-bought this one) on AmazonGoodreads | Beach Read on AmazonGoodreads | Well Played on AmazonGoodreads

2: Happy at Home with a Hardcover (aka Books)

It may be cliché, but it’s true. I’m usually pretty happy enjoying a good book. Of course, like anyone, I like to get out and about now and then, but if I have tasks that need to be done or a task lists (blog work, photos to take, cleaning, something to cook/bake), a TV show to binge (what… some of them are THAT good!!) or a good book, I’m pretty happy.

3: Never Leave Home without a Book

It’s maybe happened once (or twice?) that I have opportunity or need to have a book with me as a “time killer” when I go out. But I always grab a book when I leave the house, because, well, one never knows when you might need to fill some time – and what better way to do this than by reading??

4: Reorganizing is Fun…?

Ok, so this isn’t probably a popular feeling, but I kind of enjoy the reorganization process (and desperately need to engage in this activity because my books are out of hand – again). It’s so helpful to “refresh” the shelves

5: When you Have More Books Than Shelf Space

This struggle is real. I have this problem way too often to be honest, but I also enjoy the aforementioned reorganization process and best of all, the “spring cleaning” part that is unhauling books. But one of the best ways to know we’re a book nerd is

    Yes to cover buys! Absolutely. :) I’m guilty of it too and love having those amazing covers on my shelves haha!

    And I love being home with free time and a new book waiting. One of the best feelings ever. :)

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 1:04 pm

      YAY! Glad I’m not the only one. :) I have far too many new-to-me books to read, which is why I like to go through my shelves now and then and unhaul.

  • Brooke Lorren March 31, 2020 at 2:13 am

    I love that cover to Well Played! I think the only time I leave home without a book is when I go for a walk.

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 1:05 pm

      RIGHT!? Isn’t it darling!? :) Good point. This might be one of the only times I do as well. Appreciate your visit, Brooke.

  • Katie Donovan March 31, 2020 at 3:09 am

    No 3 is me all the way! And I have been glad of it on many occasions! And I need to check out Jen deLuca’s books. Not only do the covers catch my eye, but I love the idea of a Renaissance Faire!

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 1:07 pm

      Don’t Jen’s books look fun!? I really would like to read them soon, and in fact am pretty sure I have book one on my Spring TBR. It just seems like a good spring-ish read. :) Thanks so much for the visit, Katie.

  • Catherine@basedonthebook March 31, 2020 at 3:21 am

    Great list, I’ve started always throwing a book in my bag when I go places too – having nothing to read on the train/bus is the worst!

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 1:08 pm

      I would agree, Catherine; if you’re someone you have to wait/sit, a book is the best! Probably the only time I’ve “needed” one is waiting for work on a car to be done. Thanks for the visit!!

  • Jo March 31, 2020 at 6:04 am

    #3 and #5 were on my list too!

      Always fun to find shared bookworm symptoms. ;) Thanks for the visit, Jo.

  • Lydia March 31, 2020 at 7:35 am

    I never leave home without a book either.

    My TTT .

  • kathyscottage March 31, 2020 at 9:37 am

    I am guilty of all five! :)

  • Dedra @ A Book Wanderer March 31, 2020 at 10:08 am

    Yes! Reorganizing IS fun! I also enjoy sifting through my books, whether they’re digital or physical copies. :)

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 2:38 pm

      I always seem to enjoy it. Sometimes it’s “tough” getting going on the project, but once I do, it’s a fun task. :)

  • Poinsettia March 31, 2020 at 11:16 am

    I definitely relate to 2, 3, and 5! Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 2:38 pm

      Yay for relating to all the bookworm struggles. ;)

  • Deanna @ A Novel Glimpse March 31, 2020 at 11:53 am

    I try to do the never leave home without a book thing as much as possible. Although, now I rarely leave home, so I’m good.

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 2:39 pm

      I always grab a book. It just feels practical. ;) Thanks for the visit, Deanna.

  • Angela March 31, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Yes to having more books than space available! I’ve been trying to purge my shelves, but I inevitably end up double stacking them.

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 2:42 pm

      Right? I feel this is something we ALL relate to. I’m all about the double stack, too. ;) Need to take your advice and unhaul my shelves, too!! Thanks for the visit, Angela.

  • Lindsey @ Lindsey Reads April 1, 2020 at 1:06 pm

    All of these are so relatable! I’m definitely guilty of cover buys and I NEVER leave the house without a book! Even if I know I won’t have time to read, I still need one just in case haha :)

    • Rissi JC April 13, 2020 at 2:43 pm

      I’m all about a good cover buy, and of course, grabbing that book on the way out the door. YES! One never knows when we could have a chance to read. :) Thanks for the visit, Lindsey.
