50 signs you're addicted to reading

Hei og god lørdag! Eg har vore ein tur på handel i dag, og kom heim med litt diverse nytt. Ingen nye bøker, men gjekk og plukka på biblioteket og det er minst like kjekt. I går kveld rota eg meg inn på Pinterest, og der kjem eg nesten ikkje ut igjen. Uansett så fant eg dette biletet til venstre, og eg syns det var ei så kul liste at den må på bloggen. Original liste (med bilder) finner du HER.

XOXO

  1. Mange av disse stemte VELDIG på meg. Var kanskje noen som ikke stemte, som nr. 19 for eksempel. Har ennå ikke gått så drastisk til verk. Hadde ikke hatt så mange venner, siden mange snakker nedsettende om bøkene jeg elsker. De forstår seg rett og slett ikke på bøker. Nr. 40 stemmer veldig på meg når det gjelder vennene mine. De er ikke fullt så glad i å lese som meg ( mange av dem leser aldri og noen leser kanskje en bok i måneden), men likevel prøver jeg å få de til å lese spesielle bøker jeg har lest og som jeg elsker. Jeg synes de går klipp av så mye, men de synes tydeligvis ikke det. Jeg er en av de som fint kunne finne på å ta med bøker på fest, men der synes tydeligvis andre at grensen går. Noe som kanskje er årsaken til at jeg går ut en gang i året he he.
