We all have bookish habits we’re a little embarrassed about. Maybe you can never remember an author’s name. Maybe you can’t finish a book without starting five others and it takes you forever to get through any of them. Maybe you run in very literary circles but secretly love cheesy action novels.
Reader Shaming helps readers come clean about their bookish habits. I scanned through the submissions so far and agreed with more than a few of them.
A couple of my book confessions:
- I never remember titles or author names. I always say things like “That one with the dog…”
- I get overwhelmed when people ask me for recommendations. It’s like all the books I know and love fly right out of my head. Plus, I feel a lot of pressure to get it right–how am I supposed to know what you feel like reading next?
- I reread a lot and am surprised that most people don’t.
- I don’t lend books to a lot of people. I lost two copies of The Princess Bride that way and have gotten really protective of my collection.
