Hello readers, I hope you’re enjoying this slightly more relaxed and creative style to my blog at the moment. I do desperately want to make more exciting posts, take more of my own photographs and blog about more interesting and exciting bookish things. Today I wanted to talk about things that us readers do that are a bit silly when we’re utterly engrossed in a book! ENJOY.
1. Stayed up all night and embarrassingly fallen asleep on the way to work the next day.
We have alllllllll done this I feel. When you start reading a book at say half 9 and by the time you sit up to breathe for a minute you realise it is past midnight and you have WORK TOMORROW. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
2. Forgotten to eat for hours on end.
and then, as you sit up and take into your understanding that you’ve been reading for 2.5 hours, your tummy suddenly jumps into action like ‘OMG WE’RE SO HUNGRY, WHY HAVEN’T WE EATEN.’
3. or not gone to the bathroom for an unhealthy amount of time.
Then your bladder joins in and is like ‘hey guys, sorry to interrupt you deciding whether you’re going to be good and eat rice cakes or devour an entire tub of ice-cream but we need to go. So let’s do that first please.
4. Fallen up and/or down the stairs, walked into something/someone with your face in a book.
Now this one, I’m not sure is just me? but I have definitely walked into people, fallen up stairs and also down stairs. I just find you get so engrossed it’s impossible to pull your nose out to function like a normal human being.
5. Hiding in the bathroom to read at work or Forgotten you’ve got waaaaaay over your lunch break reading.
I’ve only hidden in the bathroom once to read a book because I tend to try to be more productive although I would love to read all day. I do however sometimes go over my lunch break because I just get too involved and just have to read to the next chapter. EVERY TIME.
6. Thrown something violently across the room.
I think this is probably a GOT type thing, when people die or something, not that imma into GOT. However there were certain moment in HP where I felt like tearing a book apart (okay not really,) but you know the feeling.
7. MISsing your STOP on public transport…MULTIPLE TIMES.
This used to happen to me allll the time, but it’s less so now because I tend to only take London Midland trains and every two seconds they scream at you which stop you’re at. However, on buses or on tubes I used to miss my stop all the goddamn time and depending where you are, that can be really bloody frustrating. Is this just me?
8. MISSED AN EVENT OR CANCELED A BIG DATE TO STAY HOME AND READ.
I very rarely do this anymore because lots of people have moved away from me so I do get kinda lonely quite regularly. However, back at university if I had been working allllll day on essays or on university based reading I would often just get out of nights-out to snuggle down and get some reading done.
9. Forgot that you’re in public and laughing/sighing/groaning whilst you’re reading….And also ugly-crying…like REALLY UGLY-crying…
This is probably the most embarrassing, especially the ugly crying, but sometimes when you just can’t contain yourself and you just need to let it allllllll out. In public, on a bus, with everyone is staring #life.
So there we go 9 Ridiculous Things You’ve Probably Done While Engrossed In A Book. Can you relate to any or these? Or all of these? Let me know if there’s any I’ve forgotten and have a wonderfully beautiful Friday lovelies.
