Books aren’t just a source or information or entertainment, they are more than that. They are your gateway to a different world. It is very easy for a person to get lost in a good book and if you’ve read lots and lots and lots of books, you will be able to relate to this post perfectly:
1. When you start reading, the world slowly fades away.
2. You know a whole lot about so many things without physically going anywhere.
3. Your imagination skills improve remarkably.
4. You often have sleepless nights because you find it difficult to put down a good book.
5. You carry your book with you wherever you go because you want to use every free second reading it
6. You’ve laughed and cried out loud. In public places. While people stared.
7. You have learnt to practice patience when someone interrupts you during your read. It. Is. A. Skill. I promise.
8. You imagine book scenarios coming to life.
9. You mourn the death of a fictional character like it was your own flesh and blood.
10. No one in the real world captures your interest anymore.
11. Unless they have the same taste in books as you do. In which case, it is love at first book-sight.
12. The biggest problem in your life is when the story of the book you’re reading doesn’t go the way you think it is supposed to.
13. In your mind, you’ve started judging people based on their grammar.
And are itching to correct them, but instead just ask,
14. You just can’t understand how anybody doesn’t read:

16. You are automatically attracted to places with books.
17. People tell you that you read too much.
