Top Five Tuesday – Five things a bookworm would never do

I’ve been neglecting my blog a bit lately as we’ve been a bit busy at home so it’s time to put things back onto a normal footing and join back in with Top 5 Tuesday.

Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is now being hosted at Meeghan reads!! For details of all of the prompts for July to September see Meeghans page here.

September has been all about life as a book worm and today is 5 things that a bookworm would never do.

  1. Walk past a bookshop without going in
    I know that I don’t need any more books. I know that I visited a bookshop only yesterday but this one might have a book that I haven’t seen yet. And I just like looking at books.
  2. Say “Of course I’m not busy” when in the middle of their new book
    Disturb me at your peril!
  3. Be caught travelling without a book to read
    This is so much easier with kindles and books on phones. Whether travelling by plane, train or bus, I will be found reading. Sadly reading in a car makes me travel sick.
  4. Turn the corner of a book down to mark the page
    There are so many other things that you can use. People actually produce really pretty book marks just for this purpose but receipts, tickets, rulers and pencils all work just as well. The same goes for leaving a book open face down and breaking the spine which was my pet hate as a teacher. I hated it when my pupils left their books open like that on their desks.
  5. Feel guilty about non finishing a book
    There are so many books out there that I am never going to have time to read all the ones that I want to. Why would I waste time on a book that I wasn’t enjoying?
Don’t bend down the corners on books

That’s my top 5 for this week. What are your top 5 things that a bookworm would never do?
